World famous pistol manufacturer and shooting sports supporter extraordinaire, GLOCK has signed on as one of the MAJOR sponsors of the 1ST Annual MGM Targets Grand National Pistol Championships.
Modeled after one of the most popular and fast paced action pistol events ever, in a truly unique format, the Grand Nats is a 100% Man on Man, 100% steel competition that will be held in Parma, Idaho July 24-31.
GLOCK’s support and participation in this great new match will truly reward the shooters, as it looks like there will be at least one GLOCK Safe Action pistol on every one of the 15 different class prize tables. “This match fills at 450 contestants, and we expect to have a waiting list next year “ said Mike Gibson, Assistant Match Director. “I shot the Handgunner in Montrose, Colorado, 11 years in a row, and found it to be one of the best matches in the country. With the increased number of side matches, (all with a cash payback), and a multitude of new and different stages, we are confident that the challenge and adrenalin level will be through the roof.”
GLOCK has been a faithful and generous supporter of all sorts of pistol shooting competitions for years. Their willingness to step up and support this match is no surprise. In addition to the Grand Nationals, other Idaho events that GLOCK has been, and are supporting include the MGM Iroman 3 Gun, the Shoot For A Cure (Breast Cancer Fund Raiser: initial indications are that over $9,000 was raised) the GLOCKS Only match, and the Jr. Shooter Camp, which will also be held in Parma, Idaho this year. Many Thanks, Team GLOCK!!
