USA Shooting Youth Pistol Programs

Progressive Position Air Pistol (PPP) is a great introduction to the shooting sports. For instance, the equipment, and particularly the ammunition, is less expensive, cleaner and quieter. USA Shooting and the National Rifle Association both support this event and hold a jointly sponsored National Junior Olympic Progressive Position Air Pistol Championship.


All PPP athletes are encouraged to register and compete in the PPP National Championships. All competitors must be current USAS members. The 2015 PPP National Championships will be held at Fort Benning and in Colorado Springs the 31 July through 2 August 2015.

We have also established a new PPP League program with two shooting seasons: Spring and Fall. Click here for program information.
