USPSA Handgun

USPSA Handgun

USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association)

USPSA and IPSC shooting are the most popular forms of practical pistol competition worldwide. They emphasize speed, accuracy, tactical skill, and creative problem solving.

Shooters compete in six divisions:

Production: Double-action or striker-fired handguns, caliber 9mm or larger, with limited modifications. These are mostly carry guns, similar to the IDPA SSP division.

Revolver: Six-shot double-action revolvers with iron sights and unported barrels. Revolvers with higher capacity, optics, or ports can compete in Production or Open divisions.

Single Stack: Traditional 1911-style autos, with limited size, weight, and magazine capacity.

Limited: Autos with larger magazine capacities. Most modifications are allowed except ports, compensators, and optic sights.

Limited-10: Similar to Limited but with magazine capacity limited to 10 rounds.

Open: Pretty much anything goes. Open guns usually have huge magazines, optical sights, and compensators.
