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.
