    Default Indoor USPSA/IPSC Matches in Colorado Springs

    On the first Monday evening of each month Whistling Pines Gun Club will host a IPSC/USPSA Match.

    No walk in shooters are allowed. You must sign up for the match ahead of time at www.whistlingpinesgunclub.com The match is not avail on the club calendar until 3-4 days before the match.

    There is a cap on the number of shooter we can accommodate so keep that in mind when trying to decide when to sign up.

    Two matches are on the class/match calendar. The regular match and the RO Match. If you are not a IPSC/USPSA Certified Range Officer that is willing to help with RO duties, sign up for the regular match. If you are a Certified IPSC/USPSA Range Officer and are willing to help, sign up for the RO match. You must be a certified Range Officer **and** willing to help.

    There will **NOT** be matches on Federal Holidays such as New Years Day, Presidents Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, ect.

    This match will normally include a USPSA Classifier.

    We start setting things up around 5:00-5:15.

    Shooting starts no later than 7:00 so get there NO LATER than 6:30. We usually finish up by 9:15, sometimes shorter or longer depending on how many shooters we have.

    You do **NOT** have to be a member of Whistling Pines Gun Club or a USPSA/IPSC member to compete in these matches.

    New shooters must have gone through the Eastern Colorado "New to IPSC" class. We offer this class at Whistling Pines, by reservation/appointment only. You MUST call the range, 719-597-3456 and get on the list. The class is sometimes offered the Sunday before the first match of the month. However, if you have completed a IPSC/USPSA, 3-gun or an ICORE match, this class is not required. This class is a Section Requirement and a WPGC requirement.

    Contact me here with any questions you might have.

    To get results or get on the signup email list, send an email to wpgcresults (AT) gmail (DOT) com and I will add you to the list. Results are also avail at www.uspsa.org under local match results.

    do i need to be a memeber of the club to shoot? do i need to take the safety class? what else should i bring?
    You do *not* need to be a WPGC Club Member to shoot in these matches.

    The "New to IPSC" class is mandatory statewide unless you have completed an IPSC/USPSA, 3-Gun or ICORE match in the past.

    IPSC/USPSA, ICORE, 3-gun and IDPA are pretty different from most types of matches as we run around with loaded guns, shoot while moving, reload while moving, all while under time restraints. Hence the rationale behind the class.

    The IDPA new shooter class no longer complies with the Eastern Colorado USPSA safety requirements. So IDPA Shooters will need this class before their first match.

    I cant remember how much the class costs ($25-30 comes to mind) but you can call the range, 719-597-3456, and get signed up. As a bonus, your first match is free.
