We are the Action Shooters of the Old
Bridge Rifle and Pistol Club in Old Bridge, NJ. On the 4th Sunday of every month
except December we run a sanctioned USPSA match. What is USPSA? USPSA is the
United States Practical Shooting Association, the governing body in the US for
IPSC matches. Our matches are run under USPSA rules. You can download a copy of
the rules at www.uspsa.org
What are our matches like? Daylight
permitting we run 7 stages, 6 field courses and a Classifier. Our stages
are generally Run-n-Gun type with movers, doors, ports, windows and steel. You can expect
target presentations from wide open and close up to partial exposures at 25
yards or more.
A typical field
course will have up to 32 rounds and include possibly steel reactive targets,
moving targets and definately the chance of non-standard shooting positions.
The classifier stage is taken form the USPSA Classifer book and submitted to USPSA to provide the information
needed to obtain your classification in the division you shot. We have competitors in all 6
USPSA divisions. You can expect to see every level of competitor at our matches
from first match to GM level. Many of our regulars compete on the National level
but even more shoot the local club circuit.
