There are PPC leagues and matches throughout North America and Europe. In Eastern Ontario, matches are often organized by area law enforcement agency shooting teams and include both law enforcement and qualified civilian contestants. The EOHC will be holding a PPC match on Saturday, July 19th.
Most PPC matches have various categories for different firearms, the open class allows guns with up to 6 inch barrels and adjustable sights while the service class is restricted to service revolvers (usually with barrels no more than 5 inches and non-adjustable sights). The snub nose event is usually limited to revolvers with 2-3 inch barrels. As more and more police departments are switching to semi-automatics, most matches will also have a separate category for semi-automatics. The nice feature of PPC is its relatively relaxed pace - with speedloaders anyone can meet the time limits and you don't have to be atheletic to do well.
If you're interested in PPC (Police Pistol Competition) shooting, send an an email PPC@eohc.ca. The Eastern Ontario Handgun Club now has PPC targets (B-27) available at a cost of 50¢ per targets. PPC is an ideal way for revolver shooters to get into action style shooting. There's an active schedule of events in the region so there are competitions every month or so during the summer. We plan on hosting a couple of PPC matches at the EOHC during the 2003 season and have seven new CSSA certified regional level PPC Range Officers to help run our matches. The first sanctioned match of the season will be held on July 19th.
If you're interested in becoming a certified PPC shooter email PPC@eohc.ca to sign up for a CSSA qualification course. This $40 course includes classroom work and shooting on the range. This training course is the only way in which civilians residing in Ontario can become qualified to compete in sanctioned matches.
