New to IPSC and want to know what pistols and revolvers are used in IPSC competitions? Aside from the definitions in the official rules, what do people actually use in the various divisions?
To attempt to ‘level the playing field’ somewhat, there are seven separate divisions in IPSC, so that competitors are competing with ‘broadly similar’ equipment. The divisions in the official rulebook are Open, Standard, Classic, Production, Production Optic, Production Optic Light and Revolver. All divisions must use a minimum of .38 calibre (9 mm) projectiles, and under most State laws in Australia, a maximum of the same (Classic in Victoria being an exception).
For specifics on the divisions, see the Appendix in the Handgun rules.
