Bob WolfThis is NOT a USPSA match......... but it is a pistol match, same basic safety rules but shooting different targets - and lots of them..... you may end up shooting 10 targets from one location..........so if u like single stack or 10 limited, or pistol.......you might want to bring a higher capacity gun.......??? jus sayin......... ;-)
