Action Pistol

Action Pistol matches are action based using movement, props and moving targets.  Matches are outlaw or “run and gun” style but within the limitations for safety at DPC, with up to 5 stages.  Competitors will carry their ammunition on them or staged.  Pistols can be holstered or staged at the start of the course.  Targets range from 9 to 35 yards.  As DPC is a cold range, pistols MUST be unloaded and either holstered or bagged and un-bagged or drawn only under a Range Officer's direction.

Competitors may also register online at and at the Club before the match.


Matches are held the on first Saturday of a month, starting at 9:30 am.  Click on the Practiscore link above or see the Calendar on the main page for the current match schedule.  Please check the calendar for dates.  Matches share first Saturday with Multi-gun.  It is recommended you arrive approximately half an hour before the start time, so you can register and get your Range Officer assignment.  Matches last about four hours and are held in the north action and Silhouette bays.


Matches are typically 4 or 5 stages, comprised of paper, moving targets, static steel, falling steel, or steel poppers targets.  Pistols can be holstered or staged. If holstered, it must on your strong side hip (shoulder and cross draw are not allowed, for safety reasons).
