Welcome to the PPLA web page.

PPLA is Victoria’s largest IPSC club with fantastic facilities that ensure we can shoot all 3 disciplines of IPSC.


  • The club is now open for practice sessions.
  • A maximum of 20 people plus a range Officer can be on each range. At competitions, this will be at our discretion, up to 20 people.
  • NO groups of more than 20 people can congregate around any area at any time.
  • The club house will remain restricted access for the time being.
  • All members are welcome to attend practice days.
  • ONLY PPLA members will be able to attend our club comps.
  • A new calendar is listed on this website..
  • Intro Days will also remain on hold until further notice.
  • A qualified, (IPSC or SSAA), Range Officer MUST be present on each range when shooting is taking place.
  • PPLA Range Safety Officers can shoot together, a PPLA RSO CANNOT supervise non qualified members.

Sorry for the inconvenience, normal activities will resume as quickly as we are allowed to do so.

As an introduction to PPLA and IPSC, you may like to watch the video above.


Situated at  the SSAA Eagle Park range complex at Little River, we have access to 21  pistol ranges which can be used for shotgun and rifle competition as  well. Thus the ability of PPLA to run pistol, rifle and shotgun competitions put us in a position envied by many. We have a fully self-contained clubhouse with all facilities; kitchen, toilets, showers, TV and a great heated and cooled clubhouse to keep us warm in winter and cool in summer.

Our club has hosted many National and International events over the years  including the IPSC National Championships, IPSC Australasian Championships, Steel Challenge Nationals and the World Police and Fire Games.

What we do.

PPLA is an IPSC only club, in that we only compete in the one discipline. IPSC is the fastest, most action orientated pistol sport in the world.  Competitors use only full power handguns with a minimum caliber of 9mm.  IPSC originated in the US in the early 1950’s and has become a favorite  in over 100 countries around the world. More information on IPSC can be  found at www.ipsc.org.au


PPLA has over 235 members and runs regular competitions on the third  Sunday of each month. Specialized training days for new members are on the first Sunday of each month, although every Sunday is a training day for new and not so new members. Competition results can be found on the results page or on our club practiscore page.

PPLA members are amongst the best shooters in the country, with members and previous members being major winners at many State and National Championships.  PPLA also has within its members, leading National and International  Range Officials. Without these Officials, matches would not function.

So please  feel free to contact the President if you require more information about joining what we like to describe as Australia’s Premier Club.
