USPSA/IPSC competitions are comprised of several divisions. Production division will require a standard pistol such as Smith & Wesson M&P or GLOCK.
Limited division is best served with a five or six inch high capacity 2011 based pistol in 40 S&W caliber. The decision between standard five inch and long slide six inch models comes down to the individual shooter. Six inch pistols provide a longer sight radius which makesaccurate aiming at high speed easier.
Single stack competitors need a five inch 1911 pistol meeting the single stack rules for weight and dimension. The 45 ACP is the perennial favorite but is rapidly losing ground to the 40 S&W due to improved recoil characteristics and lower ammo costs.
In open division, anything goes and we address the need for speed with high capacity compensated pistols designed for extreme accuracy and speed. Open pistols incorporate an electronic red dot sight allowing shooters to engage any target with absolute confidence.
