Holster courses

Holster Proficiency courses

A number of shooting disciplines (eg ICOREIPSCService PistolWestern Action) require the use of a holster for upper-level competitions.

Before you are permitted to use a holster in a given shooting competition, you must hold a Holster Proficiency accreditation. For more information regarding Holster Courses please contact us.

In-house holster course — for on-site Metro matches only

MPC runs a regular in-house holster course, so you can participate in club-level shoots only. It is NOT suitable if you wish to take part in PSQ-sanctioned matches, but is a great way to get you started and practicing regularly. 

Please contact Geoff on 0419 007 310 for more information and find out the next course date.

You must pre-book your spot at the office with the MPC Secretary where a (non-refundable) $10 fee will be charged. Numbers for each session will be restricted so make sure you register or you may be turned away!
