Police Pistol Combat Shooting

Police Pistol Combat is a revolver "friendly" type of target shooting and is a great way to get a new shooter into competition and hone the skills of sight alignment and trigger control. For anyone looking for a shooting game that offers some variety in shooting positions and requires total focus and mental discipline, PPC is hard to beat as a great way to relax and enjoy the comraderie of both civilian and police competitors. This sport offers a highly competitive enviroment for those that enjoy constant improvement in their shooting skills and a relaxed enviroment for those that just like to hit the target while learning to shoot with either hand in a variety of positions. Indoor PPC, or Police Pistol Combat, is a standard course of fire consisting of 60 rounds, fired in 4 stages. Each stage is timed. The range indicate the start and end of the stage with turning targets. The targets are B27R silhouettes. The first target, called the A target, is for the first two stages; the second target, called the B target, is for the last two stages. All shooting is done two handed. Take a moment to read the course of fire shown below and you will understand what we mean.

Minimum equipment required:

a handgun (usually a six-shot revolver of .32 caliber or above, but semi-auto's (of .35 caliber or above) are fine too) (Most PPC shooters use .38 Special Smith & Wesson K or L frame revolvers)

a holster and sturdy belt (must be "strong-side", no crossdraw or shoulder rigs)

3 speedloaders or 4 magazines (3 is a bare minimum, the more the better)

a loading tray (unless you have 10 speedloaders)

a bucket or tray for your reloads and empty cartridge cases

belt mounted speedloader holders for at least three loaders

eye and ear protection

At least 60 rounds of ammunition, preferably light to mid-load wadcutters.

magnum loads are disallowed at most matches.
