Our goals: Provide shooting activities that are safe, fun, organized and increase skills for all ages, genders and abilities. We encourage membership to the Powell County Shooting Association range, USPSA and other groups that support our sport.
For 2019 PCAS is an affiliated club of the United States Practical Shooting Association. We’ll host a USPSA pistol match the 3rd Saturday each month April through September. Registration is open at 8 am at the range on match day or pre- register using https://practiscore.com. Matches are posted at least a week in advance on Practiscore.
What is USPA? Check out their video at www.USPSA.org. USPSA matches normally consist of 5 target stages using stationary / moving cardboard and steel targets with walls, barricades or shooting alleys requiring the shooter to move through the course of fire. Most USPSA stages can be engaged “Freestyle” as the individual shooter feels it best for them. Each match will have a “Classifier” stage that is used to determine skill level on a national base for USPSA members. Seven skill levels range from Unclassified to Grand Master. Shooters are grouped into squads that may have all skill levels. Don’t let that intimidate you! This family of shooters are willing and excited to help even the newest shooter, as it grows and promotes a sport that they take great pride in. Don’t think age is a limit either. I’ve watched as young as nine and Mr. F Cook has more than a few things he can teach us about shooting at “only 81!”
USPSA provides 8 equipment divisions. The following is a basic listing of division requirements:
Not sure about the details? Don’t own a 38 cal. or bigger? Have a youngster that shoots a .22 pistol? Are you a lady shooter? Want to learn? Want to watch? Come out and bring the gear you have. We’ll get you started and even provide a coach. You’re invited to have fun, improve your skills or learn a new sport the entire family can enjoy!
PCAS may also hold informal IDPA styled shoot days.
