Precision Rifle Shooting (known by many names such as National Rifle League, Precision Rifle League, Precision Rifle Series and more), is a fast growing sport based on long range dynamic shooting. This sport is similar to other practical shooting disciplines, however focuses more on ranged shooting in different environments and disruptive positions. It related closely to both military long rang engagements and hunting.
In the 1950s, practical shooting kicked off as a sport in California with the goal of allowing the development of handgun skills for defensive purposes. This however quickly evolved into a sport with many aspects that branched it away from it’s original purpose. It is worth noting that the main influencing agent and founding member of the sport we now know as IPSC came from Colonel Jeff Cooper of the United States Marine Corps.
IPSC Action Air is a very easy shooting sport to get involved in due to accessibility and how economical it is compared to other shooting disciplines within the IPSC bracket. It is worth noting that IPSC Action Air is a mirror representation of the Handgun discipline with only a few changes based on the equipment being used.

Shoes generally need to be very durable and comfortable regardless of the activity. Some shoes are available in somewhat waterproof form, but it’s better to invest in overshoes if not expecting to get wet as they can be slipped on and off much like clothes. In cases where the climate is mostly wet or snow, it is worth getting specific footwear for those environments as overshoes would only work in temporary scenarios.
