I took part in an interesting handgun competition – GSSF (Glock Sport Shooting Foundation). Usually, I don’t shoot handgun matches but this one is very newbie friendly. The price of participation, handgun rent and ammo was very inexpensive.

So what is special about GSSF? You don’t need to own a handgun, magazines or equipment (belt, holster, magazine pouches). They are supplied by the organizers. Starting position is also simple, you already holding a handgun in hands. Stages are not difficult, you need to shoot targets from one position without changing magazines.

You need to shoot first stage three times, second stage four times and third stage three times. All time you get are summed up for the final result. It is important to shoot accurately because each inaccurate shot gives you penalty seconds.

I was in Civilian Amateur category because I am a very new to handgun and this was my first handgun competition. Two other catergories are Civilian Masters and Guardian (law enforcement).

It was a surprise but I was third out of 35 participants in my category. It was great to receive prize and medal.

So, I recommend this compeition to everyone. It will be interesting even if you don’t shoot handgun often.
