USPSA / Action Steel

USPSA - This is a pistol discipline that focuses on the balance of speed and accuracy. Through creative stage design, shooters are encouraged to find the quickest and most accurate way to engage multiple targets. Various props such as rooms, vehicles, fences, barricades, barrels, etc. are utilized to present interesting challenges.

The CPS USPSA events and practices at COSSA generally use bays #2 through #6 at our facility. Our primary bays have weather shelters with wood stoves for shade in the summer and protection from the elements in the winter. During the winter months, the stoves are a most welcome addition. We have two shoot houses, in bay #4 and bay #6, which are used to provide a bit of realism to many of our self-defense type field courses.
