What is a GSSF League Match???
The GSSF League Match is a series of three matches conducted over a 3-month period. Participants must be current GSSF members and compete in two of the three matches to qualify for plaques and prizes. If you are not currently a member, you may join the GSSF at Target World. An annual GSSF membership costs $35.00 and allows you to compete in any GSSF match.
The Lewis Prize Allocation system is used to distribute awards as equitably as possible. Thus, competitors may shoot ANY GLOCK pistol. Your two best scores of the series will be totaled and averaged at the end of the 3-match series. If a shooter competes in only two matches, his/her scores are totaled and divided by two. If a shooter competes in all three matches, his/her best two scores are totaled and divided by 2.
The result is one final score for each shooter, which is then listed in the overall order in which he/she finished. The overall list is then divided into thirds, with the top one-third considered "A Class," the second one-third is "B Class," and the final one-third is "C Class." Plaques are awarded to the top competitor of each class.
Additionally, a GLOCK handgun and other merchandise will be GIVEN AWAY by drawing at the end of a GSSF League Match series. Each course of fire shot automatically enters a shooter for the final drawing.

To shoot in a GSSF match you must use a Glock firearm. For Indoor Glock League Matches, there is only one class of firearm that counts towards prizes and classification – “stock.” For the purposes of Target World’s GSSF Indoor Match, stock is defined to be any Glock with any modification, except for those Glocks with electronic, laser, or optical sights. Guns with electronic, laser, or optical sights may be used in the match but will not count towards the shooters overall score.
How Many Courses May I shoot?
You may shoot as many courses of fire as time permits. The cost is $15 for one course of fire or $11 each for shooters that shoot more than one course of fire. Your top two scores for each course of fire count toward your overall average. The following are examples that help describe the system:
- Example One. A shooter may want to shoot a Glock 17 and a Glock 34. The overall score at the end of the series would be computed based off of each firearm type. The highest overall score will be the score that is recorded for the shooter. Let’s say this shooter shot a 500, 490, 490 with the Glock 17 and a 480, 490, 490 with the Glock 34. The average of the highest two scores for the Glock 17 is 495 (500 + 490 divided by 2) and the average of the highest scores for the Glock 34 is 490. The score that would count for plaques and which would be recorded for Glock would be the 495 shot with the Glock 17.
- Example Two. A shooter had a bad first course of fire and wants to shoot again. The shooter is welcome to do so, but only the first course of fire per firearm type will be recorded. For example, the shooter shot first with a Glock 22 and wanted to shoot again with the Glock 22. He is welcome to do so, but it will only be for practice since only the first course of fire for the Glock 22 will be recorded. However, if the shooter now wants to change firearm types, he may do so and the score will be recorded as was done in example one.

WHY DO WE USE A TARGET WHERE IT IS HARD TO SEE THE RINGS? CAN I MODIFY THE TARGET SO THAT I CAN SEE THE RINGS BETTER?
The target used at GSSF indoor matches is determined by Glock and is the same type of target used in a number of other types of competitions (e.g., Bianchi Cup, etc.) where the shooter is forced to shoot for center mass. The target may not be modified by darkening the lines, putting folds in it, or putting a bright paster in the middle of the X ring.
