Action Shooting matches have provided a test bed for equipment and techniques, many of which are now the standard for police and military training. Some of the Action Shooting top competitors are regularly employed as trainers for elite police and military units. Today, Action Shooting matches are conducted every week by the nearly 400 affiliated ranges all over the United States. For most people, practical shooting is pure sport conducted with little or no thought of the self-defense aspect of firearms use.
