Practical Shooting attempts to measure the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun, rifle, and/or shotgun. Those three elements – speed, accuracy, and power – form the three sides of the practical shooting triangle. By design, each match will measure a shooter’s ability in all three areas.


If shooting has an “extreme” sport, USPSA sanctioned practical shooting is it. Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run, speed-reload, and drive their guns through each of several courses (stage) as fast as their skills will allow.


The typical stage will require a shooter to draw his gun from a holster and then move through the stage engaging paper and steel targets. The shooter will have to reload his weapon during the movement through the course. The scoring system measures points scored (minus misses and penalties) divided by the time taken to finish the course of fire. A competitor that has the balance of accuracy and speed will place high in the match.


USPSA offers competitive divisions for most handguns, from revolvers, to scope-sighted, recoil-compensated “race guns” developed just for our sport. Each division has 6 classes for the different skill levels of the competitors. Even though you could be shooting in a squad with individuals in the higher classes you will only compete with shooters in your class and skill levels.



Pistol Match- 1st Sunday of the Month
The monthly pistol matches consist of 4 courses of fire all shot with a handgun as described above. These four courses are added together for the competitors score for that days match score. The courses will be from 6 to 40 rounds per stage.



Multi-Gun Match
The Multi-Gun Matches have stages that will use one or more of the 3 guns, pistol, rifle and shotgun. The total score for these three stages are added together for the match score. Pistol and rifle courses are typically 30-40 rounds each. The shotgun course is typically 12-25 rounds each. Bring some means of carrying enough ammo to finish the course of fire. There are three divisions for Multi-Gun Match with 6 classes in each division so the competitor still only competes against those with similar guns and skill level.



Steel Match
The Steel matches consist of 6 courses of fire with 5 static steel targets. Each stage the competitor will draw his gun from a holster and engage the 5 pieces of steel as fast as possible. The competitor will run each course 5 times, remove the slowest run and then the scoring system will record the 4 fastest runs. The total of all runs (5 stages, 4 runs) will be added up for a total time. Fastest total time for each class and division wins.
