August USPSA match

On Sunday, August 14th we will be hosting a 12 stage, 180 round +/- USPSA pistol match at York Izaak Walton in Dallastown PA. The match fee will be $20 and this match is a little different from our normal matches. We will trying to shoot as close to IPSC as possible. We will be following the 3 small, 2 medium, to 1 large course ratio. We are using all classic/international paper targets. We are painting our steel different colors. The courses although smaller than usual are much more technical for the most part. There are a lot of movers and no-shoots. We will also be loaded gun starts, unloaded gun starts, and mag inserted but chamber empty starts. There is strong hand only shooting, weak hand shooting, and seated shooting. There will also be 2 retreat stages.

This is however, a USPSA match and we will be using USPSA rules and divisions, except we will be allowing Production division to load 15 rounds in the magazines which is the way IPSC does it and should be fun for everyone.

We are encouraging shooters from the World Shoot teams to come and I know several of them are.

We will be limiting the number of shooters to 80 (8 squads of 10) and we expect to start shooting around 10:30 and be done by around 2:30. We will have food and drink available for purchase. Registration will be from 9:15 until 10:00. Don't be late we need to start this thing on time.

Pre-registration is mandatory. Please email Tom at yorksignup@gmail.com with your name, USPSA #, division, major/minor, and anyone you wish to be squadded with. Do not hesitate to sign up if you want to shoot. We expect this match to fill quickly.
