What Moves You

The first election run in October was VOIDED by the USPSA BOD due to irregular voting. A NEW ELECTION WILL BE RUN November 17 to December 17, 2018.

For me, it’s the sound of the buzzer, the adrenaline of the sights, the sound of the shot and the smell of powder.
Where else do we help fellow competitors, and then compete against them!

When I emigrated 25 years ago, my greatest joy was being able to shoot. Since joining USPSA in 1992 I have competed against the best, shot with young and old, and been blessed to shoot hundreds of matches all over the United States.
But the highlight was being able to represent my country on Team USA, winning Gold, thanks to the legend and mentor, Mike Voigt.

Now it's time to give back to the sport I love.

To be a part of ushering in the next generation of shooters.
To build on a great foundation.

To bring sports shooting into every gun owning household.

I wish to serve by joining the USPSA Board of Directors as the Area 2 Director, representing California, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Hawaii.

I would greatly appreciate your support in voting for me.

Let's keep building our sport into the greatest shooting game.

I remember when Facebook was launched, my PR person came into my office and said, "Hey, there is this new thing called Facebook, and it is going to connect us with all our friends."

According to the NSSF, the non-shooting gun owners make up a $12 billion group.

One study done for them found that 49 million adults participated in shooting in 2016.

And they still believe that millions with direct access to guns, don't shoot at all.

What is USPSA?  Is it a hobby, a sport, or an event?  The answer depends largely on who you ask, but USPSA is all three.  We are a hobby.  Not everyone who competes in USPSA has his or her eye on winning.  Many USPSA members continue to show up for t...
