Practical Shooters of Central Alabama
USPSA Matches are held on the 1st and/or 4th Sunday of each month at CAGC. Setup begins at 8:00, signup begins at 9:30, and the match starts at 10:00 (unless rescheduled for Easter, the 4th, Labor Day, etc.).
Practical Shooting 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. Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run, speed-reload, and drive their guns through each of several courses as fast as their skills will allow.
There are seven handgun divisions and one pistol caliber carbine division, each defined by the equipment used.
- Single Stack
- Pistol Caliber Carbine
Go to uspsa.org for more information about the requirements of each division.
Since USPSA stages usually have a higher round count, you will need 3-4 magazines on your belt. You will only compete against those with like equipment.
