Intro to Competitive Shooting

September 14, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Instructor: Bryan Clark

This course is designed to educate shooters with the knowledge and mindset to begin participating in USPSA matches. Topics are centered around USPSA competition, including basic match structure and rules, safety protocols for both indoor and outdoor matches, official range commands, targets, scoring, power factor, equipment, USPSA divisions and classifications. Participants will be evaluated for safe, competition level gun handling skills and will run through several drills on our Ti Training Virtual Simulator. Upon successful demonstration of the required safe gun handling skills, including holster proficiency, participants will receive a USPSA safety card, enabling them to shoot their first match.  While holster draws are not taught in this class, participants must demonstrate proficiency with a holster before receiving their safety card.


This is not a live fire class. Participants are expected to be holster proficient prior to class. HOLSTER DRAWS ARE NOT TAUGHT IN THIS CLASS. Participants must arrive 15 minutes early to report to a Range Officer and clear their gun. The RO will provide you with a “cleared” flag.


Equipment Requirements:

  • Sturdy belt
  • Holster
  • Magazine holder (at least one, belt mounted)
  • Empty magazines (at least two)
  • Unloaded gun (no loaded guns allowed in classroom at any time)
