I keep talking about the fact that spring is here. Â Yet, mother nature keeps sticking her thumb in my eye and throwing winter back in my face. Â I should know better than to get too excited about summer until about mid July… Â Any way, the point is that it’s time to get out to the range and get some training in. Â One of the ways I work to extend my training time is to compete in USPSA matches.
For years I have heard the debate about what competitive shooting is and isn’t. Â It is kind like sighted fire vs. target focused shooting, .45 vs. 9mm, 1911 vs. Glock and AR vs. AK. Â The point is that all of the debates are non issues as there are positives and negatives to BOTH sides of ALL of these arguments. Â It all comes down to context!
Today lets talk about what USPSA is and isn’t. Â Follow the link to the video watch and listen. Â Then head out to a local match!
I don’t know Jordan and nothing that I say is a comment on Jordan, his ability level, or his technique. Â The video is simply very effective at giving an overview of USPSA.
What USPSA is not:
- Just like any other shooting game, it isn’t combat.
- It isn’t a lesson in tactics
- It isn’t a replacement for other training
What USPSA is:
- An opportunity for some trigger time under some stress
- A testing ground for your equipment
- A freestyle competition
