    Pistol Caliber Carbines at Freeport matches

    Got an email From Mike, who runs the USPSA matches at Freeport R&R, and it seems like PCC's have been approved for future matches. Mike said a few details still have to be worked out, so don't expect this to happen until April's matches or so.

    No other details, so I won't be able to help with any questions.

    Never done one before but always been interested. Are these beginner friendly? What's the best way to get started and involved with PCC matches?

      Substitute PCC for handgun, and you've about got it. There are some different handling procedures, because you can't quite holster a PCC.

        Awesome, I'd love a chance to run my PCC in a few matches.

          I'm guessing this might be tied to the fact they're getting the new bullet trap system outside. Capable of handling all manner of rifle calibers. And eventually getting rid of the old style target turning system, and those giant 8x8 beams in front of them.

            Yep, the pneumatic turning system was very susceptible to rifle fire. The rifle projectiles would go through the wood and metal shielding and the air lines would get cut. John L., Gary P. & Co. did a good job trying to keep it running when they needed it, but it was a losing battle.
