international practical shooting confederation
The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) was established to promote, maintain, improve and advance the sport of practical shooting, to safeguard its principles and to regulate its conduct worldwide for the safe, recreational use of firearms by persons of good character.
EXCELLENCE IN SHOOTING
IPSC matches are submitted by IPSC Regions and properly sanctioned. Once a match is approved and sanctioned it will get displayed on the global Match Calendar
(Level III, IV and V Matches).
IPSC matches are based on the principles of accuracy, power and speed. Participation in these matches will develop a high degree of safety and proficiency, as well as providing an exciting means of recreation.
Match Results for sanctioned Level III and up matches are posted on the Results page. Results will appear within 2 weeks after the match is completed and are easily searched by name and stored by year.
