Competition is limited to Glock pistols conforming to Glock Shooting Sports Foundation (GSSF) requirements. Entry fees are $20 with re-fires costing $5 each. Competitors may choose to fire additional Glock pistols at $15 per additional pistol fired. The course of fire is 50 rounds at various distances ranging between 12 and 75 feet.
The general public is invited to participate in the first match while the July and August matches are limited to GSSF members. GSSF memberships will be sold during the first match.

"Out Glock League has enjoyed explosive growth over the past couple of seasons," said ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson. "The reasons for the league's success are simple. It's safe, it's fun, and shooting a match is a great way to spend a Sunday morning. We hope to see a lot of new faces this year!"
The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the rights of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearms.
