Practical shooting is a sport that challenges an individual's ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun, rifle, and/or shotgun. To do this, shooters take on obstacle-laden shooting courses called stages. The World Shoot, which is held every three years, is considered as the Olympics of Practical Shooting and the best shooters of each IPSC member region participate in this very prestigious event.
