IPSC is a practical Shooting sport that involves Shooting on the move, negotiating obstacles and employing tactics to hit multiple cardboard targets.
IPSC athletes must blend accuracy, power, and speed into a winning combination. Targets are 75 centimeters by 45 centimeters with a 15 centimeter center representing the "A zone" or bullseye.
Most Shooting takes place at relatively close distances, with rare shots out to 50 meters. Hitting a 15 centimeter zone might seem easy to an experienced Pistol shooter, but in IPSC only full power handguns are used (9mm or larger).
Mastering a full power handgun is considerably more difficult than Shooting a light recoiling target Pistol, especially when the competitor is trying to go as fast as possible. Time is a key factor. Scores are divided by the time taken to achieve them, adding to the challenge.
We shoot most Saturdays at 1pm on Range 1
