Our goal is to ensure our shooters are safe and set up for success. All of the clubs in the NorCal section have minimum prerequisites to shoot in their match. The specific requirements may vary with each club. At minimum, you should should:
Because USPSA has specific safety practices, LEO / MIL / Front Sight / Thunder Ranch, etc. clubs may not be used as an exemption from these requirements.
WHERE CAN I TAKE THE SAFETY ORIENTATION COURSE?
Important to note that these courses are to familiarize you with our safety rules and expectations. None of them are a substitute for professional training. You should have at least 1000 rounds fired through the handgun you plan to use, and be familiar with how to load / unload and clear malfunctions.
WHAT GEAR DO I BRING?
You should have all of the necessary gear listed on the 'Gearing up' page.
You will need plenty of ammunition for practice, matches, etc. Ammunition is usually less expensive when buying in bulk quantities. Redline Ballistics in Rancho Cordova is a huge supporter of our local clubs, and is a great place for your ammunition needs.
STANDARD CAPACITY MAGAZINES
If you own standard capacity magazines, you can use them in the match while this matter is tied up in the courts. The only restriction is your magazines must comply with your declared shooting division (i.e. Production and Limited-10 divisions are limited to 10 rounds; Open division allows more than 10 rounds).
DO I HAVE TO BE A USPSA MEMBER?
Membership is not required, but highly recommended. This will allow you to establish a classification and track your shooting progress. Some shooters also use this as a way to document their practice / use of their firearm. You can become a member at www.uspsa.org/join
The 'Intro to USPSA' course is a basic safety orientation specifically for action pistol matches.
