USPSA check it out
when I talk with non shooting freinds and those I might just meet, I can't stop talking about shooting and USPSA I sometimes feel I am a sales person for them even though I am just a member, I started shooting USPSA at the ripe age of 58 or so I will be 62 soon, and young and old alike we just have a ball, many people watch a match or two and will say I would be embarrassed to shoot with you guys, and we welcome them and tell them we all had to start somewhere just like you, within a month there kicking butt, and for the young guys man in no time you guys can really go, it is the best $35 a year you can spend, the people that shoot it are from all walks of life Doctors, Business people, Factory Workers, Computer Geeks, with one thing in common, running and gunning.

If you have never seen a match watch the worlds best on Video at on that site you can find a club near you, go and watch and do not be intimidated by the speed you can do it in no time at all with help and every one is more then happy to help, you will never meet a nicer bunch of people.

I've done a couple USPSA matches at my local club's range. My schedule doesn't always work out with the matches, and I'm not even a USPSA member yet. It is fun....and could be addicting!

There is no doubt that it is addicting! I have seen to many like myself come down shoot once and you are hooked for life or until your money runs out.

And since I work somewhat part time in the Mental Health Industry it is great socialization tool as any sport can be, and stress reliever.

I had read about it for many years but was to busy to shoot before I retired in 2001 then picked up a part time job three years ago with a Counseling Center for the Mentally Ill and it gave me more gun money.

A club near me does a self deffense pistol practice session once a month for all comers, the R.O. is a big time USPSA shooter and sets the range up like a USPSA course, a lot of people get turned on to USPSA shooting from attending the self deffense practice, it is loads of fun.:D
