Kitsap Practical Shooters
Practical shooting has been a long time activity at KRRC. Currently, we are sanctioned by the United States Practical Shooting Association, or "USPSA", sometimes referred to as IPSC, (pronounced ip-sik). IPSC is the International Practical Shooting Confederation, an international organization of approximately 50 member nations and of which USPSA is the United States chapter. We have regular pistol matches on the first Saturday of each month and an occassional "3 Gun" or "Multi-Gun" matches. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

USPSA participation will teach you better gun handling quicker that any other form of shooting. All members are invited to get involved in the USPSA program. Itís a game of managing speed, power and accuracy under stress. It has proven wise to take advantage of the knowledge from some of the 'Grand Masters' of the game. We'll be posting some tips here that will help your performance.
"Making Every Shot Count" A tip by US Champion Max Michel Jr.
This is a tip that we all know; it is just a matter of reminding ourselves how important it is. I hope you can get the point I am trying to send to you with this tip. The biggest thing to remember is to shoot your game. Do not worry about anyone else or the clock. If you can call and score the hits in real time (as they appear) then do it. This way you know you are in total control. I spoke to Jerry Barnhart about this in the past and he scores his hits in real time with open and limited guns. Do you think he is slower because of it? I THINK NOT! Apply this valuable tip in practice and see the difference.
