Youth Pistol Programs


Youth Pistol Programs: PPP

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.

*Canceled* 2020 Progressive-Position Pistol National Championship 

We regret to announce this event has been canceled. For more information, please see the press release explaining the decision.
