    Do we need an official classification to shoot this match or does USPSA allow unclassified shooters to compete?

    No classification required at local matches (which this is).

    I'll plan to be there. My Sunday's are usually booked with other commitments, so I'm excited to have a Saturday USPSA match I can attend.

    On my way out!
    I have no idea what this type of match is, but my 4 year old son is PDDNOS, or as one of his early intervention specialist called him "mild or high functioning autism" Even with just a "mild" case like my son I have a great appreciation for the care and attention children ( or adults ) with these syndromes need.

    I would like to come shoot this match, what are the rules?

    Here's a quick intro video to give you an idea of what USPSA matches are like:



    The rules can be found on USPSA's site (www.uspsa.org).
