MAPSA has been hosting USPSA sanctioned matches since 1980. We are dedicated to promoting fun, safe matches with stages that challenge shooters of all abilities. Our goal is for the Minnesota Section of the USPSA to grow and be as competitive as any Section in the United States.
Two critical ingredients for making this happen are our focus on new competitors and the support of our sponsors. Before you move ahead to the rest of the resources of this website, please take some time to recognize the sponsors featured here. Their contributions to MAPSA are absolutely critical to our success. In turn, your patronage of these sponsors is critical to their continued success.
Make it a point to favor these sponsors with your business. If you are considering a purchase that could be from one of them, click on their logo and make that purchase. If you see a sponsor you don't recognize, click on their logo and familiarize yourself with their products and services.
Please ensure the support between our club and these sponsors is a two way street!
If you are considering giving practical shooting a try, MAPSA is here to help you safely and confidently enter the world of USPSA competition. For those with more formal firearms experience that could be as little as a quick explanation of the rules and some input on which of their firearms would be best suited for their first match. Others may need gear advice and a buddy to mentor them through their first matches.
Whatever your need, please contact a club officer and we'll figure it out. And definitely check out the new competitor information on the pages that follow.
Last but not least, please don't be intimidated. We were all new once too. Who knows, you may be destined to become a Master or Grand Master. But you won't know until you give it a try. Come enjoy a Saturday at the range with us and see what this great sport is all about. You won't regret it!
