Welcome to the PNZ IPSC page, the home of IPSC Shooting in New Zealand

IPSC, The International Practical Shooting Confederation, was formed in 1976, and now embraces 90 Regions. Competition includes National and Continental Championships with the pinnacle of IPSC competition being the tri annual World Shoot.

Practical shooting is a dynamic sport that awards competitors equally for accuracy, power and speed, and which is represented by the Latin phrase "Diligentia, Vis Celeritas" or DVC.

Scores are expressed in terms of Hit Factor, which is the number of points scored per second. The highest hit factor takes all the stage points and other competitors are rewarded proportionally.

Diversity is the cornerstone of our matches, we never shoot the same courses, and so the challenge always changes. The IPSC shooter is a "jack of all trades", capable of pinpoint accuracy and blazing speed.

Our primary principal is safety and thanks to excellent training, discipline and the outstanding efforts of course designers and dedicated Range Officers, we have an enviable and exemplary safety record.

IPSC shooting encompasses rifle, shotgun and pistol shooting and competition is divided into Divisions. For example we have an Open Division, for optically sighted guns, Standard for metallic sights, a Revolver Division and Production for service type pistols like Glocks and Sigs. Competition also recognizes the categories, Junior, Lady, Senior, and Super Senior so IPSC is a game for all ages and genders.

IPSC competitions are shot through out the country. If you'd like more information about our great sport, please contact Pistol NZ's Executive Officer at info@pistolnz.org.nz.
