Fast and Furious USPSA

Discipline Description

“If Cowboy is the two step then USPSA is rock ‘n roll!” exclaimed Rick Parker. While the clock ticks away the seconds, USPSA shooters face staged “real-life” scenarios that include swirling and sliding targets. Imagine… 25 targets, 50 rounds, 5 shooting positions, 2 reloads, no misses… all in 18 seconds! That’s what Joe DeSimone did in a recent practice session using his Strayer-Voigt .38 Super race gun. “You have to find a way to shoot proficiently, so you’re not wasting any time,” explained Joe, “…it’s 99% mental.”

USPSA is an action-packed game. In one scenario a shooter may begin by lying in a make-shift bed and then spring to life to face more than a dozen intruders. In another he may run across a bridge and dodge behind a vehicle, shooting would-be attackers all the way. “The (USPSA) game is based on speed and accuracy,” clarified Lisa Munson, USPSA shooter of 13 years. USPSA scores are calculated using a formula that factors in the shooter’s score divided by his time.


USPSA originated in Southern California at the Southwest Pistol League in the mid-1970’s. Jeff Cooper, founder, began with quick-draw matches that developed into the USPSA game of today.

Mandatory Safety Check

Before a shooter is qualified to “play” USPSA, he/she must participate in a safety check with an USPSA range officer. The shooter is taught the range commands, USPSA regulations, and overall handling of the firearm.


Common calibers used in USPSA included 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .38 Super. All shooters must wear holsters, as fast draws are common.


USPSA matches are held the third Sunday of each month at an average cost of $25.00 per shooter. All activities are located in the MRC Action Bays. Spectators are welcome at all USPSA activities. Please bring eye and ear protection.
