The national organization is United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA). Greenwood Practical Pistols is an affiliated club of USPSA. We conduct local matches every second Saturday of the month from 8:30am-2:00pm (signups at 8am & hammer down at 9am). Please be prepared to help with stage tear down. We're a small club and rely on everyone's help to keep these match going.
We manage the match by the USPSA rules and have a classifier stage, where the score is submitted to national for ranking. A local match is called a Level I match and you do not need to be a member of USPSA to shoot. Other matches Level II, III, Area, Regional and National you do need to be a member to participate.
Match fees are: $20.00 for Greenwood member, $25.00 for non-Greenwood member. Your very first shoot is free. Our local match is from 85-120 rounds, I suggest 200 in case you need to re-shoot a stage.
A couple of times a year we cancel the local match, so always check this site for next match information. If you’re inclined to help, we start building the stages @ 07:00am.
Take a look at the national WEB site, www.uspsa.org
, they have a new shooter section. On the USPSA site is the rule book with the requirements for each division (guns, mags, accessories), please review. Safety is of critical importance so review all gun handling rules and guidelines!
You need to decide which gun division you want to compete in: Open, Limited, Limited 10, Production, Revolver and Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC). We shoot an optional additional rifle stage at the end of the day, so bring your 3-gun type rifles and enough ammo for one stage (~30 rounds).
Next pistol match schedule for February 13, 2010.
3-Gun match: We have one or two 3-gun matches each year shot at the cowboy town (enter at far right of pistol ranges). You'll need appropriate rifle, shotgun and pistol, plus ammo for 5 to 6 stages. See national WEB site, www.uspsa.org, for information about 3-gun shooting and safety rules. Maximum rifle distance for this match is 100yds. Next 3-gun match schedule for February 27, 2021.
