June USPSA Match This Saturday: Weaver Un-Muzzled
June is here, and so is the USPSA/IPSC club match at the Texarkana Gun Club.
This Saturday, June 2 is the USPSA/IPSC match, if you’re planning on joining us to shoot in the match you should be there by 9:30 a.m. to register, the match will start around 10:00 a.m.
One of the things I try to accomplish in this blog is simply share with other interested shooters my experiences, trials and tribulations while learning to be a competitive shooter. One reason for this is to help grow my sport, I want to peek your interest so that you might come out and enjoy the shooting sports with us, doing it one blog at a time may take a while though. Well, guess what I found, a video instruction series on YouTube.com that might speed up the process for you.
The series is called the Power Factor Show. The hosts are Steve, Rick and Caleb, all very experienced shooters, instructors and competitors. The main focus is on competitive pistol shooting as in IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) and USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) matches. The equipment, range commands, terminology and such are all very similar, and they do point out the differences between the two throughout the series.
I just started watching the videos, out of order of course, because there is a lot of stuff they talk about in the beginning of the series that I’m way past at this point. However if you’re just starting out or you you would like to explore the ins and outs of competitive shooting, this is a very thorough video series on what you need to know to be a competition shooter.
To find out more about these guys and the show go to PowerFactorShow.com, if you’re on Facebook, check out facebook.com/powerfactorshow, or you can skip all that and get started with the series below.
The Texarkana Gun Club is online as well;
As always, if your looking for a great place to shoot in the Ark-La-Tex, a local instructor or some new friends to shoot with, you’ll find it all at TexarkanaGunClub.org.
Stay sharp and shoot safe.
