SPS welcomes all persons interested in participating in the wonderful sport of practical pistol competition. We will
do all we can to help you along. Feel free to come out and watch a match before you jump in and get your feet wet.
Junior shooters are absolutely welcome but we do ask that a parent or adult guardian accompany each junior shooter.
The parent/guardian does not have to shoot but they do need to have the required safety gear (eye and ear protection).
SAFETY is #1
New shooters must be safety checked before competing (unless you have a USPSA safety card)A brief clinic will be available
at 7:30AM every match day but you must identify yourself as a new shooter so that we don't miss you in the rush of registration.
If possible, please let us know you are coming for the clinic ahead of time so we can be adequately staffed.
The United States Practical Shooting Association website has an interesting series of introductory articles that will be of interest to the new shooter. And while you are at the
USPSA website, be sure and join USPSA. Only USPSA members can become classified and all USPSA members recieve Front Sight Magazine which is one of the premier
shooting publications out there.
One of the most comprehensive online resources is the Brian Enos Forums. These forums are inhabited by shooters of every level from novice to grand master. Got a question? Search the forum
and you can probably find the answers you seek. If not, feel free to ask and you will surely get an answer. And don't be surprised
if that answer comes from a name you recognize from shooting magazines and TV coverage of shooting events! Rob Leatham, Matt Burkett and many other "household names" from the shooting sports prowl Brian's forums as do well known gun writers like Patrick
Sweeney, Guy Neill, Michael Bane, and Duane Thomas.
