It appears that the GSSF is taking between 3-4 weeks from the day your card is charged to get your new member packet to you. I spoke to multiple people at my LGS who is a Leo/gssf dealer. So I guess all of us impatient New Gssf members need to do like the military and "Hurry up and wait."

...and we'll have to have you speak with Mike G35 if you keep starting multiple threads about the same basic subject. He's our enforcer! :supergrin:

just thought I'd let the other people know who are waiting that's all.

Exactly the reason for my post above. This "update" could have easily gone into either of his already existing threads.

Hint to the OP.... chill?

Mike has been busy honing his USPSA skills. He may show up at Dayton, OH.

Greetings,

How long should I be patient? It's been just over 6 weeks since my CC was charged for the membership, and I haven't got a package yet. Since it was a lifetime membership, maybe they figure they've got plenty of time :supergrin:

I know I'm in the system, since my enrollment for one of the armorer classes was approved, but it would be nice to have the card, or at least a membership number in case they ask to see it at the class. Of course the class is in Smyrna, so maybe they're just saving the postage and plan to hand me the package when I arrive.

Cheers,
Rusty

I spoke with on of the gssf employees at the match yesterday. She was saying they were busy but it should be in by 3-4 weeks at most. Maybe you should shoot them an email if it has been over 6 weeks. They are a very small group at gssf and they are pretty busy traveling to matches and getting apps processed. I'd give it to the end of the week and if you haven't received it or gotten an email back, I'd call them.

I just checked my notes again, and it's actually been over 7 weeks. I guess I've been too busy to be impatient :supergrin:

I just dropped them an email, so I'm sure they'll look into it. I just hope my coveted discount gun coupon isn't lost in the mail :crying:

Cheers,
Rusty

just trying to help someone out..seven weeks is a long time, but there probably is a reason. They are really nice at Gssf and I'm sure they will be more than willing to help you resolve the problem. They need to head back to Georgia from the matches this weekend so give them some time... I've learned patience from this lol

When you get out in the field, and meet and talk with the fine folks of GSSF, your perspective changes. :whistling:

This was a double match weekend for the GSSF staff. One team in Thibodaux and one team in Reevesville. Last weekend one team was in Morganton, NC and this coming weekend is another double match weekend. No rest for the weary, at least not until Memorial Day weekend.

I think I got that new guy smell off in the shower. I have all my stuff ready for Mobile, 6 months in advance. Lol. I can't wait. I just started breaking in my 23, and my 17 gen 4 is in prime working condition. I'm getting my practicing in but I think I need some Bama lessons:whistling:

Damn it... Okay, I'm turning my printer on and applying today (spent the whole day reading '12 vol 1)... Now that I have my 17 I have no more excuses.

It's in the mail now. Wish there was an online option.

There is an online option. Just email the PDF with filled in info. I sent mine in this morning for a life membership so I guess we'll see how long it takes. Should I expect a confirmation email or will everything just show up in the mail? Thanks

GSSF/Glock sends no confirmations of any kind, for anything whatsoever. You can check your CC statement online to see if they received and processed the payment, then just wait and check your mail...

I wonder if all these people calling GSSF about membership packets are slowing down final results... :)

I just PDF emailed it.

I wonder if email is quickest.

With paper, it can hit a pile to be processed later. With email, if they don't have proper folders setup, the email could get lost to the 'read, but already on second page' status and could be forgotten.

I wonder if email is processed immediately because of this.

They really need some basic e-business solutions to make membership applications/renewals and event registration super easy. If could reduce their workload significantly and it can offer instant confirmations.

Of course, if they have almost no IT infrastructure, this could get costly (all the necessary security systems to protect the data).

I have done both and found no difference in processing time or 'effectiveness'.

Online is the way to go. Look for your credit card to be charged in the next day or two, after that you will get emails from gssf about random stuff. I got my welcome packet in the mail 8 days afterwards. It came with the Hat, Glock Magazine, Gssf rulebook, sticker, patch, and most importantly...my membership card and pistol purchase coupon. Just be patient and everything will arrive. :D

PettyOfficer
08-28-2012, 07:23
Patience isn't a problem.. I won't be using the coupon anytime soon, nor is there a match I can attend (anytime soon)... I am just a fan of efficiency.

I just looked at my online bank info and my card was just charged a few minutes ago, the charge hasn't cleared yet (but will shortly). Cool!

Email is definitely the way to go ... or maybe new memberships are processed with a higher priority than renewals.
