February 1st, 2014, The University of Florida Practical Pistol Team
traveled to College Station, TX to compete in the A&M hosted SPP Southwest Winter Regionals. The centerfire team made a huge improvement by shaving over 150 seconds off their score from last year’s match, placing 2nd and receiving funds for their growing Midway USA foundation account. Through a year of competition the Gators and Aggies have forged a strong friendship. A&M’s former team captain will be traveling with and shooting the Area 6
Championship with UF team members in April. – Tom Davis

Two juniors from St Petersburg FL have worked very hard over the past 3 years. So hard that they made it to the USPSA World Shoot Team.

With tremendous support from their home range, the Wyoming Antelope Club and several of the local competitors individual donations, these two have a good chance of winning at the biggest IPSC tournament in the world.
As many people know the World Shoot XVII will be held this year in Florida at the Universal Shooting Academy. World Shoot is only held once every three years and is in a different country each time.

Electronic Scoring can and will be a great improvement to our sport. There are several companies developing software to be used across many platforms.
