Who we are
Rocket City Practical Shooters are Northern Alabama's practical pistol
shooting club affiliated with the United States
Practical Shooting Association (USPSA). We usually shoot a 5-6 course
pistol match with at least one of them a classifier for local monthly matches.
We hold our matches at the Cavern Cove Shooting Range in Woodville, Alabama. See directions web page.
Anyone with safe gun handling skills is encouraged and welcome to participate.
Our dedicated team of practical shooters will provide coaching and mentoring for
all new shooters.
