IPSC PCC, also known as Pistol Caliber Carbine Division, is a type of shooting competition that involves the use of carbines chambered in pistol calibers. IPSC stands for International Practical Shooting Confederation, which is the governing body for this type of shooting sport.
In IPSC PCC competitions, shooters are presented with a variety of stages, each of which consists of a different shooting scenario. These scenarios typically involve targets that are placed at different distances and angles, and shooters are required to move through the course of fire, engaging the targets as quickly and accurately as possible.
The types of carbines used in IPSC PCC competitions are typically semi-automatic, and chambered in a pistol caliber such as 9mm, .40 S&W or .45 ACP. The ammunition used is typically full metal jacket or jacketed hollow point rounds.
There are several different divisions within IPSC PCC, each with its own set of rules and equipment requirements. Some divisions may allow for modifications to the carbine, while others require the carbine to be used in its factory configuration.
IPSC PCC competitions require a high degree of skill, speed, and accuracy, and are popular among shooting enthusiasts around the world.
