What Does IPSC Mean?
IPSC stands for International Practical Shooting Competition. From the IPSC website: “IPSC recognizes all the shooting disciplines – Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun, and Action Air. IPSC shooters need to blend accuracy, power, and speed into a winning combination. Multiple targets, moving targets, targets that react when hit, penalty targets, or even partially covered targets, obstacles, movement, competitive strategies, and other techniques are all a part of IPSC to keep shooters challenged and spectators engaged.”
Grizzly Targets visits the IPSC Nationals every year at Universal Shooting Academy and is a proud supporter of the competition.
What’s the Overall Size of Target?
The target with stand- weights approximately 53 pounds. Without stand, the IPSC Hostage Target weights around 43 pounds. Once assembled, the very top of target should be about five feet high. Of course, you can cut the 2×4 shorter if desired (2×4 NOT included in purchase).
