Action matches consist of field course and standard exercise stages. The standard exercise stages dictate shooting position, mandatory reloads and
sometimes restrict the number of shots that can be fired. The field course stages, which are what make Action matches unique, require movement, reloads,
and problem solving by the shooter to complete the course and engage all the targets — in a safe manner of course.
Stages scores are determined by dividing the number of points (determined by hits on target) by the time it takes to complete the stage to determine the hit
factor for the competitor. A combination of accuracy and speed is needed to be a top Action competitor, but not everyone attends the match for competition.
We always welcome new shooters and people who just want to have fun while gaining experience in safely handling a firearm.
The LPC is an affiliated USPSA club (United States Practical Shooting Association, www.uspsa.org
). Competitors do not have to be members of USPSA to participate in our matches.
Following each Action Match we have a Side Match. The Side Match is scored separately and is not associated with the Action Match. The Side Matches after the Action Match alternate through the year as follows:
- Pistol Caliber Carbine in Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct
- Rifle in Feb, May, Aug, Nov
- Shotgun in Mar, Jun, Sept, Dec
