GLOCK Introduces
Commemorative GSSF G17!
The GSSF Engraved Commemorative GLOCK
s long time GSSF members know (and
new members,too, if you’ve been keeping
up!), this year marks the 10th Anniversary of
the GLOCK Sport Shooting Foundation. And
what years they have been! We’ve had 50,000+
people involved over the years with the
program, thousands shooting safely every year.
GSSF has grown from a handful of matches per
year, to a recognized shooting “discipline,” with
over two dozen matches a year, people from
other countries involved, and competitors of all
descriptions participating.
All of this has made all of us at GLOCK very pleased and grateful for our customers. To
commemorate this year, GLOCK has manufactured a G17 with a rarely seen “extra”
on GLOCK pistols: engraving. That’s right, as the highlighted (artificially enhanced)
photographs show, this G17 is specially marked.*
That’s the good news. The little bit of bad news
is that this was a limited production run, with
serial numbers beginning with “GSSF.” So, if
you’re interested in a piece of shooting history, get
your order form in now! There is a special price of
only $398.00 US.
Thanks again for your loyalty and support.

In Memory of September11, 2001;
“Remember, Do Not Forget.”
n September 11th of this year, GLOCK employees around the world were first horrified,
then deeply angered over the attacks on the United States. Truly, this day “the world
changed.” As this goes to press, recovery and reconstruction work continue, and the United
States Armed Forces and our allies are seeking and bringing to justice those responsible, and
those who would assist evil.
We would like to note here with sadness, but also pride, that one GSSF member made the
ultimate sacrifice for his fellow citizens. New York City Police Officer Jerome Dominguez
responded to the World Trade Center with hundreds of other emergency services personnel
the morning of September 11th. He did not return. Your thoughts and prayers are requested
for him, his fellow responders, the victims themselves and their loved ones.

GLOCK Wins at
Practical Shooting Nationals
By Robin Taylor, USPSA Staff
shooters from all over the globe
rolled into PASA Park in
Barry, Ill., for the USPSA Limited Championships
September 16-19, 2001. Like a family reunion, the
GLOCK “tribe” within USPSA/IPSC spent three full
days sharing notes and shooting their GLOCKS to win
positions all over the leader board.
GLOCK
page Ten
USPSA/IPSC shooting pits a shooter’s speed and
accuracy against a series of “stages” involving
anywhere from three to 36 shots. Shooters must draw
from a holster and move safely through the course,
negotiating obstacles, reloading, and shooting at a
wide range of paper and steel targets on the way—all
under pressure from the clock. There are no alibi’s for
gun malfunctions, and every second counts.
To do well here, you need a reliable, accurate gun.
As you might expect, for many shooters, that gun is a
GLOCK!
Knock-down steel targets, moving targets, disappearing
targets, and targets as far away as 40 yards tested the
competitors’ skills. The physical challenges involved
negotiating false-fronted buildings, plywood cars,
lawn chairs, haybales, even a bed! All shooting is
done outdoors, rain or shine, putting even greater
demands on the shooter and their equipment. This
year’s match involved 20 stages, consuming more
than 300 rounds.
GLOCK has been a part of practical shooting for
years and is a big supporter of both Limited Division
and the new Production Division (where only out-ofthe-box double-action and safe-action handguns may
be used). Shooters like Armando Valdes and Debbie

platform this year, and some 10 percent of the shooters in the main match also chose GLOCK.
GSSF shooter David Sevigny won USPSA’s new
“Production Division” outright with his G34. Sharon
Zaffiro from GLOCK,Inc. took high lady in Production,
and seventh lady overall in the main match—a grand
achievement given the “Production Division’s” strict
requirements. (Zaffiro was competing with a stock G34,
10-round magazines, and lower-scoring ammunition
against women with custom guns and high-capacity
magazines carrying up to 20 rounds each!)
Debbie Ross used her custom G35 to place sixth in
the main match.
GSSF Benefit/Demo:
Ross regularly finish in the highest ranks of men and
women in practical shooting events, relying solely on
their GLOCK pistols. More than half of the shooters
competing in Production Division used the GLOCK
GSSF had planned to run a demonstration match
conjointly with the USPSA nationals as part of a
promotional effort. Following the tragedy of Sept. 11,
USPSA’s match was nearly canceled. When the
decision to proceed was made, GSSF coordinators
Chris Edwards and Scott Gilbertson converted their
demonstration match into a benefit match for the
families of police and firefighters who lost their lives
in the World Trade Center. USPSA shooters queued
up to help bereaved New Yorkers, and experienced
GSSF shooting at the same time.
If you own a GLOCK pistol and a holster, you have
everything you need to try USPSA/IPSC shooting. For more
information about USPSA/IPSC go to www.USPSA.org
or call (360) 855-2245.
Double Champion for the 21st Century
s many of you are aware,
a number of champions
have shot their way into the
winners circle in a number of
shooting disciplines using
various GLOCK models. The
great Armando Valdes began
with a G17L, claiming a
world championship title,
and confounded other competitors with a G24 and then
a G22. Just a few short years
David Sevigny
ago, GLOCKs nearly swept
all the classes at the American Handgunner World
Shootoff Championships. Ms. Debbie Ross has
distinguished herself at the World and National levels
with her GLOCKs. And now, seemingly from out of
nowhere, a young man from Connecticut has put himself
in the history books with two National Championship
A
The GLOCK Report® / Volume III, 2001
wins within the space of a few weeks. Mr. David Sevigny
has once again shown the accuracy and reliability of
GLOCK pistols by first capturing the Production Class
(and 2nd overall with a stage win) at the 2001
USPSA/IPSC Limited National Championships. David
used a G34 to pull ahead of literally hundreds of
competitors, most of whom had expensive, highly
customized pistols. His G34 was “box stock.” Just
two weeks later, using the same G34, he secured the
IDPA National Championship (Stock Service Pistol)
with the low overall time for the entire match.
Congratulations, Dave! We wish you many more wins
with your GLOCK to go along with your 70+ club wins
and your 18 State, Regional and National Titles.
Other champions were also present and wrote their
names on the championship lists with their GLOCKs.
Ms. Sara Dunevin of Arizona is this year’s Ladies

National Champion of the IDPA, using a G17 with over
85,000 documented rounds through it. Mr. Yutaka
Yokomachi was the High International competitor at
the same match. He used a G22 swiftly and accurately.
Our congratulations to these fine competitors.
Finally, in the shooting of steel targets, where
accuracy is crucial, speed paramount, and an equipment
bobble disastrous, two competitors using GLOCKs
placed 1st and 2nd at the Steel Challenge for 2001. Our
congratulations to Justin Pettitt and Matt Kartozian.

Pistol Giveaway Winner
I
’m sure you all know of the
events in New York City
last week, and it is with deep
sorrow that I’m writing this.
Jerome Dominguez is a friend
of mine, and as a member of
NYPD’s Emergency Services
Unit, he was among the first to
respond to the World Trade
Center attack. There were
Jerome Dominguez
numerous people trapped
(pictured)
above the crashes who needed
to be rescued and without hesitation Jerome and other
members of the service entered the South Tower to
begin the rescue effort. Shortly after this, with
America watching, the South Tower collapsed, likely
killing all those inside.
Jerome was a member of GSSF and about 5 weeks
prior to the attack he had won First L.E. B class in West
Hampton, NY. He was very excited and proud to have
won, and he looked forward to his prize. I am asking
that in the next GLOCK Report or GLOCK Annual
you mention Jerome and his sacrifice to let the other
members know how deeply this has touched us all.
Thank you for your consideration.

with a new G30. Thank you for a great match as well as

An Easy Excavation
t the beginning of June, I had called my father down
to help me put in a sump pump, as I found that I had
a large puddle of water accumulating under my house.
Prior to going under the house to start digging the
hole necessary for the sump pump, Dad and I began
talking about the Oregon State GSSF Match that I
had just completed the weekend before in Roseburg.
My Dad then asked me if I had all the tools ready
for our little “excavation,”— I told him I did. I showed
him the hand trowel that I had planned on using, as
there is approximately only two feet of space to dig
under the house— absolutely not enough room to use
a full size shovel. The dirt under the house is a very
heavy clay and large rock combination, and as I looked
at the hand trowel I knew it was going to be a long,
difficult morning.

A Surprised Winner
n July 22, I attended the GSSF match at Coeur
d’Alene, Idaho. Having little experience with
timed matches, I planned to just shoot my best and
learn from the experience. The GLOCK staff were
helpful and provided some good tips on shooting, as
well as a safety review.
After shooting the match I went to see the armorers.
They checked out my G19, informed me it had an 8 lb
disconnect, replaced it with a standard one as well as
upgrading the gun with other new parts. The cost for
this service was nothing, thank you very much. The
G19 now shoots better for me but my G22 is still my
favorite and I shoot it best (bench rest groups under 2"
at 25 yards are my norm).
Last week I was surprised to receive notice that I
had won a GLOCK for Class “B” Category. Well, my
order is in the mail and you can bet I will be back next

The GLOCK Report® / Volume III, 2001
Then I remembered the trusty GLOCK entrenching
tool that I carry in my pickup for emergencies—it
was perfect for this situation! After we finished the
digging, I grabbed my camera and took this photo of
Dad holding the entrenching tool under the house.
“GLOCK Perfection” applies to everything that GLOCK
puts its name on, not just pistols. By using GLOCK’s
entrenching tool I probably saved several hours and a
lot of four-letter words.

The Best in 80 Years
would like to enter the next Pistol Give-Away, and
also tell you and anyone who is interested, I am now
80+ years old. I have shot a lot of different handguns in
my life, from the cheapest to the high dollar weapons,
some that are supposed to be the best on the market. I
saw my first GLOCK, a G17, when they first came out.
It was in a store I worked in part time—when I saw it
in the showcase,I considered it to be a plastic toy. But
curiosity got the best of me. I took it to the range and
tried it, field stripped it, etc. Then I gave it some tests
to see if it would really do what the reports said it
would do. It did, and more. I have carried and used
GLOCKs ever since, and continue testing other
weapons. I have found nothing yet that will beat the
GLOCK models I now have: a G21,two G22s, a G23 and
a G27. I have owned G19, G17, and G30 models and
have never had a problem with one. I try to shoot once
a month even now and with GLOCKs, I am more accurate than any of the other makes. I just don’t believe
they can beat the GLOCKs. I know they haven’t yet.

hen I began competitive shooting in the late 80s,
I started with a stainless Colt 1911. With the
rosewood grips I got a lot of compliments on how good
it looked. It shot well too, with only the occasional
fumble. About a year later a fellow shooter announced
that he was selling his G22 in order to help finance a
new 1911 race gun. After several negative comments,
such as “That’s a plastic gun, it will never last,” and
“Man, that is one ugly pistol,” the crowd dispersed and
I got close enough to check it out. I had heard of them,
but never had seen one in person. I didn’t think it
was ugly, in fact it had a charm all its own and looked

ithout going into too much detail, when I lost my
favorite large frame S&W last August, I decided that
I would research the market and find the best handgun
available —the most durabilility at the best price.
However, I knew that my next purchase would have to
suit my wife as well, as she had never fired a handgun
before. Polymers did not really bother me. Being a grunt
in the Marines taught me the value of plastics, aluminum
and alloy products to lighten the load.

My Wife’s Having All
the Fun!
W
When I narrowed it down to the two handguns that
were affordable, the choices were semi-autos, and I knew
that the best defense weapon for my inexperienced wife
would probably still be a durable 38 Special revolver.
After several months of going to the range every
week, she really started to enjoy herself. I was amazed at
her natural ability. From the start she actually shot
12" to 14" groups, which made working with her very
easy. My wife says “One of the nice parts about shooting
is that even when you make mistakes, if you are
consistent, someone can always help you get better.”
I got tired of watching her have all the fun and
decided to purchase my first G22, one of my original
choices. I was amazed at the accuracy, low recoil and
ease of maintenance. I fell in love with it immediately.
Marines do like their weapons, you know!
One day, after shooting about 200 rounds I relinquished control of the G22 to my wife. After explaining
that the dynamics are a little different in the handling of
the weapon, she was ready to go. At first it was awkward for her, as she has very small hands but once I felt
comfortable that she could handle the G22, I slapped a
10 rounder in and stood back. I told her to shoot at the
trademark at the bottom of the target because I didn’t
feel like reeling it in and dealing with the pasties.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. She just about cleaned
the trademark off at 25 feet. We immediately went into
the showroom, asked the owner to lay out all the .40
S&W that they had and walked out with a G23.
Being stuck with the revolver is OK; good guns will
always be good guns, but we carry and shoot our GLOCKs
regularly. We are both impressed with the extremely high
quality and dependability of these products.
As a former Marine, I could not be happier with a
firearm. As for my wife, well my guess is that she’ll be
outshooting me in no time.

efficient. I picked it up and it fit my hand perfectly. The
seller, needing the cash, threw in a lot of extras to seal
the deal so I went ahead and bought it. As it turned out
I am still very happy today that I did.
The first thing I instantly loved about my G22 was that
there is no thumb safety to fumble with. Just point and
shoot, like a revolver, but with a much better
trigger. The second thing I loved about it was the ease
with which tight groups could be shot very quickly. It is
common to have both bullet holes right next to each
other on the targets, sometimes touching! The third thing
I loved about it was how easy maintenance is. Breaking
the pistol down is a joy compared to a 1911. Finally, the
last thing I love about my G22 took some time to reveal
itself. Match after match it never, ever jammed. It goes
bang every time I pull the trigger. It gives me a chuckle to
see the shooters of the competition’s pistols jam or
misfire. I always recommend a GLOCK to them!
I will never forget when the guy who sold me my first
GLOCK brought his new 1911 race gun to the match. It
wasn’t long before it jammed and the magazine flew out
of the gun, hit the ground and ejected all the cartridges
into the air. Some months later he asked to buy the G22
back…ha!…not a chance! GLOCK’s excellence has
silenced any prejudices against it. Now there are lots of
GLOCKs at the matches and I have yet to see one fail.
While some may think they are not pretty, if you want a
gun that runs right out of the box, make it a GLOCK!

WOWed by GSSF
ne word sums up my first experience at a GSSF
match—WOW! I participated in the GSSF match in
Roseburg, OR on June 3-4, 2001 and had a great time.
This was my first shooting competition of any kind, and
I admit that I was a little nervous because I didn’t know
what to expect. When I got there, though, I quickly
became comfortable with everything that was going on,
due to the helpfulness of the staff running the match.
I found that the GSSF matches are great places to get
started in shooting competition. They are well organized,
competitive, challenging, fun and most importantly, safe.
I was impressed with the level of safety stressed at the
match I attended. For entry level to advanced shooters,
GSSF matches are a great experience.
If you are not a GLOCK shooter you owe it to yourself
to get a GLOCK, join the GSSF and shoot in a match. I
am going to keep practicing to improve my scores, but
more importantly, I am going to keep shooting in the
GSSF competitions to be around other shooters and
GLOCK owners who want to have a safe, fun time and
appreciate a high quality pistol.
I can’t wait until the next GSSF match in my area,
and I guess the only real complaint I have to lodge
against GSSF is that they don’t have matches every
weekend year around in my neck of the woods.
Again, thanks GLOCK and GSSF, for a superior gun
and a great sport shooting organization.

Dad Got His GLOCK
recently obtained my concealed carry permit and
joined a pistol club. My oldest son is an explorer
scout and in the criminal justice program at his high
school. He and I took the basic class together, and
since he was going to work in law enforcement he
said, “Dad, get a GLOCK!” After examining firearms in
gun stores and reading article after article, I had to
agree with him. We now shoot a G17 and my youngest
wants to join the club as well—we will need more
GLOCKs in the family.
You folks at GLOCK would be proud of the glow of
enthusiasm on my son’s face when he shoots the
G17—thanks for your fine product.

Welcome to GLOCK

Come Rain or Shine
have been involved in law enforcement and military
shooting and training for several years. During that
time I have shot with many fine shooters who used a
variety of pistols. I have never seen a pistol that I trust
like my GLOCKs.
I’ve shot in the rain with the pistol lying on
sandbags during down time. The wet sand made the
other shooters hesitant to put down their pistols and
they eventually went home, but I kept shooting and
had no fear of jamming. I’ve been on the line with
others as we waited for a malfunctioning name brand
to be put back in working order, but my GLOCK never
slowed down the line of shooters.
As a bike patrol officer I went down on the asphalt
on my gun side, slid about 50 feet and had a bad case
of road rash. My GLOCK had a few nicks that buffed
out, and it was good as new long before I was!
I
I have been privileged to shoot IPSC and IDPA with
some extraordinary shooters. I never felt embarrassed
to draw my $500 GLOCK next to their $3000 gun. I
wasn’t worried about mine getting dirty and I knew my
GLOCK would be back in my waistband on the ride
home, not locked in a case awaiting more “tuning.”
On duty, I’ve dropped my GLOCKs more than once
(don’t tell my Sgt.). I just picked it up, dusted it off and
kept going. Not worrying about loose sights, scratches
or nicks in $100 wood grips is far more important to
me than having the latest “Hollywood” cool gun.
I’ve found that the .40s can shoot better than I can and
it is a comfort to know that things are going to go where
I want them, time after time despite rain, sand or asphalt.
I want to thank GLOCK for giving me a weapon that
I stake my life on. Every day. Stay safe.

am writing this letter to express my feeling about
your product. I am employed with the California
Department of Corrections Fire Department in Coalinga,
California. I have been in the Fire Service for over 25
years, six of them with CDC. I own a G23. I bought
it about four years ago and carry it along with my
concealed weapons permit. I enjoy the accuracy I have
achieved with the .40 caliber. I also enjoy the feeling of
security I get knowing that when my family and I take
trips to the coast or mountains, I have the reliability of a
GLOCK with me. I recently joined GSSF. I am looking
forward to going to a match in Bakersfield this month. I
plan to enter and hope to win, but I would be satisfied
just to socialize with others who appreciate the high
quality and reliability of your product.

friend. We spend time each month enjoying the great
outdoors and good company of others who take gun
safety and self-protection seriously. My wife is getting
pretty good. I also enjoy the ease of maintenance of
your product. After the time spent at the firing line, I
appreciate the simplicity of cleaning and reassembly of
my GLOCK. Gun safety has always been a #1 priority
and I make my family’s safety and security a #1 priority
also. I am a little apprehensive about the Bakersfield
match, but considering the great fun I have shooting
the G23, I am sure this fine product and my shooting
skills will carry me through.
I have been eyeing the new .45 Subcompact in your
magazine — it has my name on it. I have been dropping
hints to my wife like crazy. I have a birthday coming up
this February and it would make a great present. All she
has to do is add a box of shells and a bow. I am a GLOCK
devotee and I look forward to years of enjoyment with
your product. Thank you for the opportunity to shoot
such a fine handgun. I’m looking forward to the .45.
I have been visiting your website—I want to purchase
a GLOCK hat and pin and find out more about GSSF.
Keep up the good work!

Now I’m Having Fun
never thought of competition shooting as fun. I have
watched my husband compete in an IDPA match
and I did not like the fast paced environment. I have
shot a couple of matches for fun at our local shooting
range, but never dreamed of entering a competition!
My husband was attending his first GSSF match in St.

Paul, MN, so I decided to go along and watch. However,
on the drive up, he convinced me to shoot the match. I
was very nervous and unsure of my decision to compete.
I borrowed a friend’s gun to compete, since I do not
have my own and I was off to the first course. I started
shooting the plates and was missing quite a few. I was
nervous and this was a gun I had never shot before. The
range officers, sensing I was nervous started yelling
“high” or “low,” letting me know where I was hitting. I
thought this was wonderful and it really helped break
the silence. I made it through the match and I am
anxiously awaiting the next one! It was a great time.
Thanks, GSSF, for changing my mind about competition
shooting! Thanks again to all the range officers and
GSSF members for making this a great event for me!

A Great GLOCK Team
t has been a week since I traveled five hours one way
to compete in the Shelton, WA match, and I am still
reliving all the stages in my mind to see where I could
have done better. I enjoy the matches and the format so
much that the travel time is only a minor inconvenience.
I competed in the local match here in Roseburg, but I just
can’t seem to get enough of the matches, so I travel to the
Shelton match every year as well. In fact my enthusiasm
has converted two non-GLOCK shooters this year to
full-time GLOCK shooters, GLOCK owners, and GLOCK
competitors!!! My two buddies had never shot a GLOCK
until they met me, and now because of my enthusiasm
and “obsession,” we have formed a team that practices
regularly and promotes the shooting sports.
As a team we have made some pretty ambitious
plans to compete in the Oregon, Washington, Idaho,
and Piru, California matches next year. Among the
three of us we own eight GLOCKs and compete with
all of them. It is because of the GLOCK family that we
have developed our friendships and enjoyed a lifetime
supply of camaraderie. We like to think that we form a
group of conscientious guys who promote safety first
and fun second. With that thought in mind, we are very
impressed with the professional way in which the
matches are conducted and the positive atmosphere
that is generated. Your staff members are consummate
professionals and are always very helpful. We would
like to take this opportunity to thank GLOCK and the
entire GSSF staff for making the matches safe, fun and
enjoyable experiences for the whole family!

events of September 11, so I appreciate the confidence
that the reliability of the G19 gives me.
Unlike many of your other correspondents, I do not
want to knock another handgun brand or model in order
to sing the praises of GLOCK. GLOCK stands on its own
merits as a great gun without any of that nonsense. As a
matter of fact, my love for the Colt 1911, which started
back during my service with the 82nd Airborne, turned
me on to the GLOCK. That’s right—the simple, reliable
and robust Colt .45 ACP converted me from duty
revolvers to the GLOCK. Both weapons adhere to the
K.I.S.S. principle of design and operation. The GLOCK
has the advantage of a simpler manual of arms and fewer
parts, but both weapons break down easily and require
little maintenance compared to other handguns. Before
I realized this, I did not want to convert from my 38
Special revolver to the G19 for duty carry. I handled the
GLOCK, stripped it down, talked to those who carried it
and I was sold. It is a great gun and the perfect envelope
for the cartridge it fires. I’ll stake my life on it!
In closing, I’d like to say that I love my GLOCK and
do believe that if John Browning were alive today, he
and Gaston Glock would be getting along just fine!

Disappointed Junior
ack in June, I took my 16 year old grandson, who has
been shooting handguns for over four years, to the
GSSF match in Fulton, NY. He was not allowed to compete
in the match due to a new law which prohibits anyone
under eighteen years of age (unless they have a valid NYS
pistol permit) from handling or shooting any handgun.
About two weeks ago I took him with me to the
GLOCK match in Harvard, MA. He was allowed to
compete there, under the strict supervision of the
range officers. Safety is always uppermost at all of the
GLOCK matches. We just looked at the results on the
GSSF web site. There were 119 competitors in the
amateur class that he competed in. He finished in 55th
place—taking High Junior honors, beating 64 other
shooters. He was ecstatic, and is looking forward to
going to Topton, PA, and other states to compete in the
GSSF matches with me.
Not to be outdone, I finished in eighth place, taking High
Senior honors—my best finish so far in the many GLOCK
matches I have competed in. Many thanks to GSSF for
promoting the shooting sports for all competitors.
