    Is it true that practical shooting will be included in the Sea Games? PNSA has mailed my club for the upcoming qualifier. I haven't seen the invitations yet. Maybe one of the BOGS can give us some details.

    PPC 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.

    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)
    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. Full metal jacket and magnum loads are specifically disallowed at most matches.

    Most PPC shooters use .38 Special Smith & Wesson K or L frame revolvers (which are currently available on the used market in Canada for $300-$400). There are many modifications that can be done, but a stock gun will be fine to get started. Trigger jobs, custom grips, heavy barrels and sight ribs are among the most popular modifications. Optical sights, ports or compensators, and barrels over 6 inches in length are specifically disallowed.

    All shooting is done two handed. The standard short course of fire consisting of 60 rounds, is fired in 4 stages. Each stage is timed. Ideally ranges 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:

    Stage 1 - 12 rounds in 20 seconds at 21 feet, all double action. Standing position with no support. Starting with a loaded, holstered gun (all by range officer's command) and at least one extra speedloader, when the target turns, draw, fire six rounds, reload, then fire six more rounds before 20 seconds expire.

    Stage 2 - 18 rounds in 90 seconds at 75 feet, all double action. Starting with a loaded, holstered gun and at least two extra speedloaders, when the target turns, draw, kneel and shoot six rounds. Reload, then using a supplied barrier, shoot six left handed from the left side of the barricade. Reload and shoot six right handed from the right side of the barricade.

    After the line is safe, again by range officer's command, you will change from your A to your B target.

    Stage 3 - 6 rounds in 12 seconds from 75 feet, all double action. Standing position with no support. Starting with a loaded, holstered gun, shoot six rounds.

    Stage 4 - 24 rounds in 165 seconds from 150 feet, may be shot single or double action. Starting with a loaded, holstered gun, and at least three extra speedloaders, when the target turns, draw, assume a seated position and fire six rounds. Reload, assume a prone position, fire six rounds. Reload, stand, then fire six rounds left handed from the left side of the barricade. Reload, then fire six rounds right handed from the right side of the barricade.
