As part of our mission, we want to bring more and more shooters to the sport. Practical shooting can be an intimidating sport to start. And that is why we want to help everyone interested to be a part of this fascinating activity.

    If you have friends who are willing to do so, please, let them know about us.

    Starting in our next match in June (06/29) until December, we will begin counting points towards our .38 America Championship – a combined points results of each shooter and their respective divisions. In the end of the year, in each division, the shooters with the highest number of combined match points will earn medals for their placements as well as some cool prizes. So don’t miss out!!
