So what is USPSA?
United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) is the U.S. affiliate of the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) and most matches in the U.S. are managed under the USPSA umbrella organization and rules. http://www.uspsa.org/ USPSA is also the parent organization for Steel Challenge.
USPSA is an action-shooting sport which will test your marksmanship, gun handling skills, equipment, and even your problem solving skills. So if you like the idea of shooting in a dynamic environment where you’re moving, shooting around barricades, shooting while moving, shooting at moving targets, shooting at reactive targets, and generally enjoying being with like-minded shooters, this might be the sport for you!

What do I need to shoot a USPSA or Steel Challenge Match?
Chances are you probably already own a handgun and the basic gear to start competing in USPSA or Steel Challenge.
USPSA is comprised of six divisions into which most semi-automatic handguns and revolvers will fit into, and you DO NOT need a $4,000 race-gun to be competitive. There are divisions in which your 1911, Para-Ordnance, Glock, XD or XDM, M&P, CZ, Tanfoglio, Sig, H&K, etc will fall into, and a minimal investment in magazines, holsters, and mag pouches is all you need to start competing in USPSA matches. However if you own a $4,000 custom race gun, there is even a division for you!
There are some basic requirements, and one of them is the handgun must be safe, and must be chambered in a 9mm or greater caliber. A serviceable strong-side holster is also required, and you’ll need appropriate eye and ear protection. As some USPSA stages require 32 rounds, we recommend you bring sufficient magazines. A typical match requires 125-150 rounds of ammunition.
