Held at the Griffin Gun Club in Griffin, GA, on September 25-27, winners took home a total of over $21,000 in prize money, as well as 64 GLOCK pistols.

“The match set another all-time GSSF entry record and was a tremendous success due to the extraordinary efforts of the Griffin Gun Club, Range Officers, GSSF staff and members from all around the country,” said Alan Ramsey, Director of Training & GSSF.
