The Action Shooting Sports Course. (ASSC)
If shooting has an “Extreme” sport then Action Shooting is it. Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run, speed-reload, and drive there guns through each of several courses as fast as there skill will allow. In our sport, just as in combat both speed and accuracy are equally important. A fast run with poor hits or misses is likely to cost you the match just as perfect shots and a slow time will not win. The key to success is a balance of speed and accuracy, just like a gun fight.

The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) was officially founded at the International Pistol Conference held in Columbia, Missouri, in May 1976.

The promotion of accuracy, power, and speed as three equal elements was the prime objective of the Conference along with procedures and rules for safe gun handling.

The constitution was established and the Confederation was born. The purpose of practical shooting was developed and the motto - DVC - Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (Accuracy, Power, Speed) was introduced to reflect this balanced objective. . In 1984, the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) was incorporated as the governing body for the US Region of IPSC.
Practical Shooting attempts to measure the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun rifle and or shotgun. Those 3 elements – Speed, Accuracy, and Power - form the three sides of the Practical shooting triangle. By design each match will measure shooters ability in all three areas, to do this, shooters take on obstacle laden shooting courses (called stages) requiring anywhere from six to thirty
plus shots to complete. The scoring system measures points scored per second, then weights the score to compensate for the number of shots fired. If the shooter misses a target, or shoots inaccurately, points are deducted, lowering that all important points-per-second score.

The Action Shooting team, teaches and constantly refines the Close Quarters Marksmanship (CQM) Course. In its current configuration the CQM course lasts 3 days and expends approximately 300 rounds. The course is designed to improve a Shooters Close Quarters and mid range accuracy, refine shot placement, reload effectively, engage moving targets, engage targets while moving, using foreign weapons, and night fire. In other words we increase the survivability and lethality of Student Shooter in any imagined real world scenario.
