The MRPC USPSA Match Volunteer Staff will be conducting a USPSA clinic on the 4 th Sunday of
January, 1/26/20, weather permitting, starting at 9:00 am.

How do I register for these clinics? Send an email to 2020uspsaclinic@mail.com including your Name
and Phone Number.

The purpose of these clinics is to:
Be Safe and Have Fun
Showcase proper movement skills to attendees
Have attendees moving through a course of fire safely and confidently
The USPSA staff plan to set up stages the morning of the clinic. Once the stage(s) are ready, staff
will discuss approaches to shooting the stage and USPSA rules governing these matches. We’ll
discuss equipment, gun handling and coach through a stage plan before going hot. We’ll run all the
attendees through each stage at least once, rearrange targets or stage and shoot until around 1:30
pm. We will expect attendees to stick around and help with tear down and clean up like any MRPC
match.

Who should attend? Any MRPC club member who has an interest in pistol shooting, people that may
want to try “running and gunning” in USPSA matches without the intimidation of match conditions.

Shooting gear you should bring: Gun, holster that covers trigger guard of gun, No retention strap
please, SEE NOTE ON HOLSTERS BELOW, a good belt, at least 2 magazine pouches and
magazines (4 is better), at least 100 rounds of ammunition, eye protection, hearing protection,

What should I bring besides my shooting stuff? Food and non-alcoholic beverages you desire.
Warm clothes, as this is an all outdoor event; most competitive shooters will wear a warm shirt tucked
in and take off their heavy winter coat when time to shoot, our rules do not allow concealed weapons.

Where will this occur? At the Bullseye Range, top of the hill where pistol pits 4-6 are.

Holsters: This piece of safety equipment is worth spending $50.00-$100.00 on. Most shooters use a
kydex or injection molded holster. These are very stiff, durable, and totally worth the money. MANY
PEOPLE ARE DISQUALIFIED AT MATCHES BECAUSE OF A CHEAP FLOPPY HOLSTER WHEN
THEY SWEEP THE MUZZLE OF THE GUN OVER THE HAND THEY ARE HOLDING THE
RETENTION STRAP OUT OF THE WAY WITH. A proper holster will have plenty of retention without
a strap. I use a Bladetech Dropped Offset Holster (DOH) for Production Division as do thousands of
other shooters. I carry with comp-tac holsters almost exclusively, they also make competition legal
holsters. ShooterConnection is a online store based in Lexington that sells all kinds of good stuff and
can get it shipped same day you order. We shoot with their employees all the time, some are MRPC
members.
