- Target identification
- Multiple Targets
- Moving Targets
- Low Light
- No Light (Flashlight)
- One hand firing - Strong and Support hand
PPL meets at the PSTC for 6 consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. A new league starts every other month.
We generally shoot 3 separate exercises every night — a standard qualification course (many shooters on the line simultaneously) and 2 individual exercises (1 shooter at a time). These exercises may involve dry fire, live fire, role-playing or simulator use.
Plan to shoot, and come prepared with 150 rounds for each of the 6 sessions.
You must register for the League in advance and pay in person or over the phone by calling 503-794-8023. Participation is limited to 10 for each 6-week League. Fees are $160.
Practical Pistol League is open to PST 102 graduates and those who successfully challenge the class standards through the PST 102 level. For more information, contact the PSTC at 503-794-8023.
Practical Pistol League is meant to be practice for self-defense and is oriented toward using what you carry:
- Self-defense or duty handgun (minimum caliber 9mm/.38 spl.)
- Safe concealable or duty strong side hip holster
- Magazine or speed loader carrier
- At least 3 magazines or speed loaders
- A tactical flashlight is strongly suggested
Scoring and Prizes
Practical Pistol League is intended as a training, practice, recreational and social event. Scores are for fun, artificial training stress and informal competition with oneself and others.
