IPSC / SAPSA as a Sport
The South African Practical Shooting Association (SAPSA) is the local governing body of practical shooting in South Africa and was founded in 1976.
It is affiliated to the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) which has approximately 100 member countries. There are active clubs situated all over South Africa and matches are held throughout the year.
Practical shooting can be defined as a shooting sport where the three elements of Accuracy, Speed and Power are balanced.
A typical match will require a competitor to complete various different stages by shooting against the clock while scoring as many points as possible during the shortest amount of time. The courses of fire are always different and require a shooter to be prepared for any eventuality and to be able to think on their feet.
