Practical Pistol Shooting

Xsite game day photos

Xsite runs practical shooting at several locations, at our Outpost site and every Tuesday evening and some weekends at the High Wycombe and Booker Rifle and Pistol Club indoor range.

Unlike skirmishing, practical shooting is shot against a clock at targets. to simulate combat scenarioes. Each time you shoot, it is on a course of fire, that is never the same and is very dynamic. Shooting and moving is nothing like shooting statyic targets many people traditionally associate with target shooting. The courses of fire vary in length, some very short with maybe 6+ shots and some long with 40+ shots involving several magazine changes. Although you are competing against yourself and the clock, Practical shooting does get competitive, but is still as fun and friendly as skirmishing.

We operate under the international rules laid down by IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation). There are many competitions held throughout the UK and also throughout Europe. Practical shooting is the fastest growing shooting sport and Xsite are proud to be at the forefront of events in the UK.

Airsoft and the Policing & Crime Act 2017

How does the Act affect airsoft?

From the 2nd May 2017 the Act introduces an exception from the classification for airsoft guns as firearms, so long as they meet certain criteria.

This means that airsoft guns (and it doesn’t matter how they are powered) are not firearms if they are designed to fire a spherical plastic missile that is no bigger than 8mm in diameter and they have a muzzle energy that is no greater than 1.3 joules if they can fire successive shots (often called “full auto”) or 2.5 joules if they can only fire individual shots (meaning either “single shot” or “semi- auto”).
