The United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) is a fun, exciting, competitive shooting sport that stresses safety while providing a venue to practice your handgun and pistol caliber carbine (PCC) handling skills.
USPSA provides the shooter with a choice of divisions to compete in, providing a range of equipment choices. You do not need a high dollar "race gun" to compete in USPSA. You can compete in Production division with off the shelf, stock handguns such as a Sig 320 or 226, Glocks, Smith and Wessons M&P, or Springfield xDs. There is even a division for revolvers. Detailed information about the various divisions can be found at USPSA.org. Along with a 9-mm or larger caliber gun, you will need a holster, enough magazines for 40-50 rounds of ammunition, and some magazine pouches.
At our monthly matches, we typically have seven stages, with the round count per stage ranging from as little as 6 rounds to as many as 32 rounds. Our stages may include steel targets, paper targets, swingers, disappearing targets, and present a challenge for all shooters, regardless of talent level and experience. Plan on bringing a minimum of 200 to 250 rounds.
We operate as an authorized and fully affiliated sub-club of the Oak Ridge Sportsmen's Association and follow all the rules as set forth by USPSA.
