IPSC is the acronym for the International Practical Shooting Confederation. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Power and Speed are balanced in a unique scoring system. IPSC has defined Action Shooting. It requires competitors to shoot fast and accurately, often shooting on the move and developing techniques and styles to shave off fractions of a second between shots, during reloads and drawing from the holster. IPSC Canada is the governing body for the sport in Canada.

More info about IPSC can be found at the IPSC BC website (www.ipscbc.com) and IPSC Canada website (www.ipsc-canada.org)
