Practical shooting is a sport that simultaneously measures the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun in a fun, fair, safe, competitive environment. Three elements – speed, accuracy and power – form the three sides of the practical shooting triangle. Each match measures a shooter’s ability in all three elements.
