GGP 003 - Our Favorite Shooting Sports: USPSA

We're kicking off a series of shows on our favorite shooting sports. First up, the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA)! GGP-003 USPSA

What is USPSA? Randi and Julie explain the history of this dynamic shooting sport along with a basic breakdown of divisions, classifications and categories. In addition to sharing why USPSA is one of their favorites, the national champs share some of their most memorable match moments.

Listener Questions

  • What’s the easiest division to get started in and what do I need?
  • What's a realistic goal for my first match?
  • What's your advice for teaching an all women's class?
  • What's the best way to get started and are there special matches for first time shooters?
  • Some people have said that USPSA shooting causes a false sense of skill when held in comparison to defensive shooting, that it causes bad defensive habits that a shooter might default to in a personal protection situation. Could you address that?
