Our next USPSA match is Saturday February 3rd
USPSA is a shooting sport combining accuracy, power, and speed. Shooting for points is weighed against shooting quickly while giving a scoring advantage to those shooting heavier recoiling handguns. Targets consist of standardized cardboard silhouettes and various metal reactive targets that fall when hit. A match is divided into smaller stages that range from a few rounds fired to over thirty rounds fired, depending upon the stage layout. USPSA shooting is unique in its promotion of freestyle solving of a shooting problem. When presented with a stage layout, shooters are told the basic guidelines and are left to solve the shooting problem themselves. The shooter must come up with the best way to shoot the stage quickly and efficiently while balancing mental with physical ability. The shooter has to think and be creative in order to excel!
