Did you mean "advise"? Assuming so . . . . go to uspsa.org

You can download the rule book without being a USPSA member. You can also find clubs in your area, on the site. You do not have to be a member of USPSA to shoot at level I matches. But, you better know the rules.

If USPSA looks interesting to you, I'll do everything I can to help you out.

I agree with jamesb. I watched a few matches first then got a trusted handgun and a shooting belt with mag holders and holster cost me about $120. Practice practice practice. I setup a dry fire drill area in my basement and do drills for about 30-1:00 a night. You can download the steel stages just by googling them. I got and practice once a week at my range even if it is with my .22 to help with muscle memory.

Short answer . . . no.

At a Level II match a division winner may go home with a new gun.

A gent wanted to compete in revolver bowling pins and he didn't have unlimited amts of ammo to do it. He bought a 22 revolver as close to his competition piece as possible and set up beer cans at same range pins would be. Fired a few bricks (Brick = 500 rd bulk pack)

Premise: smaller tgts caused him to concentrate more and while recoil mgt was lacking, it maximized shooting time & practice makes perfect.

Result : he won his local competition. (the pins looked Huge after the cans)

Best Advice : Watch a few matches, notice what competitors are using & politely ask questions. Hopefully, they will let you try their rigs on a stage or two to see what "works" for you. Don't just sit on the sidelines - Participate !!! Gun people are extremely generous and will often loan you a rig so you can join in the fun.

My .02 - 1911s can be modified to excel in any competition. ( SA 5.25 - 2nd choice, is ready to go right out of the box in major & minor calibers.) Rob Letham might know a thing or two about action shooting...
