Practical-shooting training gives the gun owner a new quality to his shooting skills, which consists above all in the safe handling of the gun, technical and tactical skills and speed of thought. Essentially, this quality is summed up by the three main components of practical-casting – power, accuracy, speed. These components have also become the deviis of the IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation) – Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas.

Practical is suitable for everyone – men and women of all ages and social status. A wide range of different age groups will be recognised – from Juniors (under 21) to Super Seniors (+60). In addition, no distinction is made on the basis of the gender of the competitor – the shooting tasks are the same for everyone, and often a small, lithe woman moving quickly from one shooting position to the next has achieved a better result than a muscular, well-trained man.

The overall objective of the course we organise is to introduce the shooter to the principles and specifics of practical shooting, to provide the necessary knowledge and skills to participate safely in IPSC competitions and to practice safe and responsible gun handling.

Those who have yet to purchase their own weapons and equipment will be advised on choices and decisions based on their wishes and objectives.

At the end of the course, participants will be tested on their theoretical and practical knowledge and skills. This is necessary, in particular, to ensure the safety of the shooter, the competitors, the judges and the spectators. Practical-shooting is a very dynamic shooting sport and therefore there are no discounts for safety and security.

A person who has successfully completed the safety course and has been selected as a member of the club will receive an IPSC Estonia Shooting Sportsman’s Licence and will be entitled to participate in all IPSC shooting competitions in Estonia and abroad, as well as the special rights and opportunities of a shooting sportsman under the Weapons Act.
