The Ontario Region Glock Challenge.
This event will be held at the Fabulous Ontario Rod and Gun Club in Ontario NY on August 13/14 2022. (Just 15 minutes East of Rochester)
This is a great way to get newer shooters introduced to the sport shooting/competition world. The GLOCK Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) is a community of GLOCK shooters & enthusiasts ranging in all levels of experience from new shooters to experienced shooters. GSSF membership is required of all competitors. You may join GSSF by email, fax, standard mail, or at a match. They accept cash, check, money order or credit card
Only GLOCK pistols may be used in the competition. There are 12 divisions possible. They are: Civilian, Guardian, Subcompact, Competition, Heavy Metal, Major-Subcompact, Unlimited, Master-Stock, Pocket Glocks, Rimfire, Glock Girls, and Glock MOS. Your gun model and status (LEO, Non LEO) determines the division(s) you can compete in.
Competitors can usually complete all stages of the match in one day. Registration opens at about 9:00 AM each day and closes at 2:00 PM. Shooting continues until all registered entries have completed their stages or we run out of daylight, whichever happens first. Stage signup books are closed ½ hour after registration closes.
Competitors will need a minimum of 100rds per entry. A GLOCK pistol, 4 magazines, eye and ear protection, comfortable range appropriate footwear and clothing,
There are 3 stages.
One is called GLOCK The Plates. Shooters will engage 6 plates. The goal is to knock them all down in the fastest time with few or no misses.
The next stage is called Glock M. This is an array of cardboard targets in the shape of an M with one steel target in the middle.
The last stage is called 5 To Glock. This one is set up either as an alternating (l-r) array of 5 targets starting at 5yds and going to 25yrds. The other option is a lineal setup with the targets all in a progressively shifting line.
The goal in the Glock M and 5 To Glock states is to shoot 2rds per target, preferably hitting the middle zone and doing so in the fastest time possible.
All shooting is done from a stationary, low ready position. This event is perfect for newer shooters!
