USPSA attempts to measure the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun, rifle, and/or shotgun. Those three elements – speed, accuracy, and power – form the three sides of the practical shooting triangle. By design, each match will measure a shooter’s ability in all three areas.
IDPA as a sport is quite simply the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios and real life scenarios. Shooters competing in IDPA events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self-defense use. No “competition only” equipment is permitted in IDPA matches since the main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, not his equipment or gamesmanship. One of the unique facets of this sport is that it is geared toward the new or average shooter, yet it’s fun, challenging and rewarding for the experienced shooter.
Steel shooting offers a port of entry to the shooting sports that is far less intimidating than practical shooting. Steel shooting provides an excellent starting place for young or beginning shooters. It also provides a soft way for those who have begun to suffer the problems associated with ageing to remain involved in the shooting sports. All this provides an alternative for those who might otherwise be lost to shooting.

ICORE, (International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts), is an action shooting competition where the equipment and course design rules are specifically written for revolver shooters. Courses of fire include drawing from your holster, reloading, and movement. In this regard it is much like USPSA competition. The principle differences are that the equipment is limited to revolvers of 32 magnum calibers or larger and that all courses must be designed to be six rounds neutral. We use the NRA D-1 target, as well as steel, and a time plus scoring method that is somewhat simpler than IPSC scoring and places a greater emphasis on accuracy.
