Practical shooting attempts to measure the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun, rifle and/or shotgun.
If shooting has an "extreme" sport, USPSA-sanctioned practical shooting is it.
Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run, speed reload, and drive their guns through each of several courses as fast as their skills will allow.
Shooters take on obstacle laden shooting courses (called stages) requiring anywhere from 6 to 30+ shots to compete.
The scoring system measures points scored per second, then weights the score to compensate for the number of shots fired.
If they miss a target or shoot inaccurately, points are deducted, lowering that all-important points-per-second score.
