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 2014 PPP National Championships will be held at Fort Benning and in Colorado Springs the 25th through the 27th of July. We have also established three separate stand-alone PPP Postal Program competitions: Fall, Winter and Spring.
