USPSA - Featured Sites and Video
Practical shooting is a sport that evolved from experimenting and the practical applicaiton of the handguns used for self-defense.  In 1976 an international group of pistol shooting enthusiasts met in Columbia, Missouri. From that meeting came the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC). In 1984 the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) was incorporated as the US Region of IPSC. Membership in USPSA automatically includes membership in IPSC.

For years, USPSA competitions have provided a test bed for equipment and techniques, many of which are now the standard for police and military training. Some of USPSA's top competitors are regularly employed as trainers for elite police and military units. Today, USPSA matches are conducted every week by the nearly 400 affiliated clubs all over the United States. For most people, practical shooting is pure sport conducted with little or no thought of the self-defense aspect of firearms use. However, USPSA members are generally the most proficient shooters in the world.
