WHAT IS IPSC?
IPSC recognizes all the shooting disciplines - Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun, and Action Air.
IPSC shooters need to blend accuracy, power, and speed into a winning combination. Multiple targets, moving targets, targets that react when hit, penalty targets, or even partially covered targets, obstacles, movement, competitive strategies, and other techniques are all a part of IPSC to keep shooters challenged and spectators engaged.
The Latin words Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (DVC) meaning accuracy, power, and speed are IPSC's motto and form the foundation for competition. IPSC also emphasizes procedures for safe gun handling and strict adherence to the rules governing the sport.
Designed in 1980 and featuring the IPSC shield centered on a field of white with a blue border, the IPSC flag passes during the Closing Ceremonies from World Shoot to World Shoot.
