Q: Do I have to know all the USPSA/IPSC rules before I come?

No. On your first day, before shooting, you'll learn the basics in the "IPSC 101" course that will be presented by one of the members. There you will learn the important safety rules and terminology. During the match you'll be paired with a "big brother" to answer your questions and help you through your first match.

Q: Anything else I need to know?

Bring your gun unloaded and in a case and your magazines empty. You will be told where to holster your gun and when to load your magazines.
