Experience the excitement and competition of being a part of the United
States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA). Practical shooting is an
exciting, fun, fast action safe shooting sport where accuracy, power and
speed count. USPSA courses of fire are predominantly “free-style” in
nature where you are not told how to shoot the stage, just as long as
you shoot it safely. Courses of Fire have multiple targets, moving
targets, reactive targets, penalty targets, partially covered targets,
steel targets that are engaged all while moving and negotiating
obstacles. There are six distinct divisions in USPSA that you can
participate in based on what kind of pistol and equipment you want to
use. If you own a pistol, holster, some magazines and a few magazine
pouches, you can shoot in USPSA. Stages may consist of
up to 32 shots. Typically two classifier stages are included in
each SLSC club match.

August Match Report
What a day on the range it was. We tried the Monster Match format today and it was a hoot! Lots and lots of rounds down range with many reloads. I have to say I even saw an Open Shooter reload today. I couldn't get a picture of it but, I saw at least two magazines on the ground!
This was a great day on the range with lots of team work. Cindi T, Karen B and Mary P took care of registration and the scores today with just a few hours notice. You all kicked some butt!!! The set up crew really got together and made it happen today. They walked onto a broken range this morning and flat out transformed it into a Level II quality match in just a few hours. I never could have a match without top notch folks like you all. Then to top that they all stayed till 4:00 getting our range cleaned up and organized.
You Bullet Slingers Rock!
As always it is a pleasure to shoot with each and everyone of you all.
