What is IPSC?

The first episode in our “What is this sport anyway?” series.

In this one we take a look the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC).

We cover handgun in great detail. We discuss Rifle, Mini-Rifle, PCC and Shotgun to lesser degrees but all disciplines get a mention.

We discuss hit factor scoring, equipment, match levels, expected round counts, power factor and many other aspects of the sport.

We also contrast the sport against some other options where appropriate.



Mentioned in this show: EGPSA PCC Level III match.
