IPSC is the acronym for the International Practical Shooting Confederation. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Speed and Power are balanced in a unique scoring system.

IPSC Canada is the governing body for our sport in Canada.
The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) as a sport is quite simply the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in IDPA events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self-defense use. No "competition only" equipment is permitted in IDPA matches since the main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, not his equipment or gamesmanship.
Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS, also known as Western Action Shooting, Single Action Shooting, or Cowboy 3-gun) is a competitive shooting sport that originated in Southern California, USA, in the early 1980s.

Participants must dress in appropriate theme or era "costume" as well as use gear and accessories as mandated by the respective sanctioning group rules.
The Alberta Sporting Clays Association formed the CNSCA in an attempt to bring all Canadian sporting and FITASC shooters under one umbrella, shooting in their own association as do Americans under the NSCA, the English under the CPSA, Australians under the ACTA, etc. The ASCA is not suggesting that Canadian clubs and/or shooters have to join the CNSCA, however it provides the opportunity for those to belong to a federal organization benefiting all.
