See USPSA.org for shooting rules and related information. These events are held on the 3rd Saturday of the month from March through October.
Practical Shooting attempts to measure the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun. 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.
To do this, shooters take on obstacle-laden shooting courses (called stages) requiring anywhere from six to 30+ shots to complete. The scoring system measures points scored per second, then weights the score to compensate for the number of shots fired. If you miss a target, or shoot inaccurately, points are deducted, lowering that all-important points-per-second score.
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 as fast as their skills will allow. Matches are held outdoors, in all weather, further taxing competitor skill.
