    Thumbs up Interesting in getting into USPSA (aka IPSC) Take IPSC 101

    For anyone interested into getting into some competitive pistol shooting. Here's an excellent way to get started.

    USPSA - United States Practical Shooting Association
    (aka IPSC - International Practical Shooting Confederation)

    Marysville Rifle Club is hosting an "IPSC 101" class on March 12th/March 20st 2011 for any new shooter who presently doesn't have a USPSA Safety Check card or who isn't presently approved to shoot USPSA matches and is interested in this fast-paced style of practical shooting. Upon successful completion of this class, you'll be ready to compete in any local practical-shooting competition. The class will consist of roughly 7 hours of class/range work (Saturday, March 12th 10AM to 5PM with a lunch break. Lunch/drinks provided free) followed by personalized coaching through your first practical shooting match to be held the following Sunday at MRC (Sunday, March 20st 10AM to 3PM). Barring any severe safety infractions (DQ's) Sunday, the students will be given their safety check cards. The cost of the class is $75 (the MRC IPSC match fee on Sunday is $20).

    To register for the class (or for more information), please contact me at Class size is strictly limited to 10 students. For more information about practical shooting, please visit the USPSA's website at

    I was approached at my local gun store last night by a gentleman telling me about USPSA! Apparently they shoot on the 2nd Sunday of each month in Puyallup at Paul Bunyon from 10-2. IDK much more but was invited out to watch, learn, ask questions, and start to get involved if I wished to. I wanted to pass this information.

    I think this range is out near 176th / Meridian by the landfill. Can anyone confirm or deny? I was unfamiliar with the name when he gave it to me. I was warned to bring my own eyes and ears.
