IPSC is a growing shooting action sport in Alberta, with multiple training opportunities and matches from local to international. CCSC has a very active IPSC league.
3-Gun shooting events are practical shooting events where the stages are shot with a combination of a rifle, a handgun, and a shotgun.
In PPC, the shooter does not walk or run with the firearm. The focus is on accuracy within a defined time allotment at set distances from 7 to 15 to 25 to 50 metres

CCSC Safety Rules
Safety is important in any sport including the shooting sports. The shooting sports are statistically safer than most sports. This safety really comes down to 4 basic rules that MUST be followed. There are more safety rules and guidelines for each disipline within the shooting sports but these 4 are universal and should be practiced by anyone handling a firearm.
Always remember the 4 basic firearm safety rules:
1. Treat ALL firearms as if they are loaded.
2. DO NOT point at or cover anything with the muzzle until ready to shoot.
3. Keep trigger finger off the trigger and outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot.
4. Be certain of your target and your line of fire
