The sport of Practical Pistol Shooting is exciting and challenging as well as being one of the fastest growing shooting sports in the world.
The growing appeal of this sport lies in the diversity of its courses of fire, by offering different courses of fire, rather than set types, practical shooting continues to offer the competitors the opportunity to improve their skills in many different areas.
Something in here?
Courses of fire utilise many aspects not found in the other more traditional shooting disciplines such as movement by the shooter, drawing from the holster, moving targets, multiple targets and the freedom for the shooter to solve the shooting problems presented by the stage design.
IPSC shooting matches are based on the principle of accuracy, power and speed. The matches are varied with emphasis on the safe use of handguns. Participation in these matches will develop a high degree of safety and proficiency in the use of handguns as well as providing a great means of recreation.
