The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) (pronounced IP-sik) is a Pistol based shooting sport based on the concept of practical shooting. Accuracy, power and speed are all required to achieve a maximum score.
Accuracy, power, and speed were recognized as the quintessential elements and have become the foundation of IPSC shooting. The Latin motto Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (DVC) meaning accuracy, power, and speed was introduced to reflect these balanced elements. Range procedures and rules for competitions, as well as safe gun handling standards are upmost of importance in the sport.
