Attended United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Course
This weekend we spent two days at a United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) course. The USPSA is one of the premier competitive shooting organizations in the world and a member of the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) that conducts shooting matches around the world. The USPSA has nearly 400 clubs all over the United States.
Practical shooting, also sometimes known as dynamic shooting or action shooting, is a shooting sport where the competitors try to unite precision, power and speed, by using a firearm of a certain minimum power (caliber) to score as many points as possible during the shortest amount of time, with penalties for inaccurate shooting. The courses are called "stages", and are shot individually by the shooters. Usually the shooter must move and shoot from several positions, fire under or over obstacles and in other unfamiliar positions. There are no standard exercises or set arrangement of the targets, and the courses are often designed so that the shooter must be inventive, and therefore the solutions of exercises sometimes varies between shooters. Although the weather was a little iffy on the first day it was a great course and everyone seemed to have a good time in the range pits.
