The success of last years USPSA Monday night league has brought us to another year of testing our skills and speed! This is a night to night event– pay for season or pay each night you shoot. USPSA and IDPA are similar but yet very different in their rules and procedures.
Practical shooting is a sport that evolved from experimentation with handguns used for self defense. The basic difference between IDPA and USPSA is slightly different rules and longer rounds. Like IDPA, it 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. To do this, shooters take on obstacle-laden shooting courses (called stages) requiring anywhere from 6 to 30+ shots to complete. Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run, and speed-reload through each of several courses as fast as their skills will allow. There are competitive divisions for most handguns-from revolvers to scope-sighted, recoil-compensated "race guns" developed just for this sport.
