This page is for IPSC Australia’s Regional Director (Gareth Graham) to publish information of interest to our sport and its members in Australia.


Dear Regional Directors,

We hereby send you the minutes of the 42ndGeneral Assembly of the International Practical Shooting Confederation, as held on September 16, 2018 in Pattaya, Thailand.

We would like to thank all Regional Directors and delegates for attending the Assembly, taking part in the discussions in a positive way and voting on the motions, be it in person or by proxy. We would also like to thank the Thai Practical Shooting Association for being an excellent host for the Assembly.

In 2017, only the Shotgun rule changes were voted upon. Therefore, this year’s agenda was quite extensive, turning the assembly into a marathon session. We were happy to see the healthy and passionate discussion on the future of our sport. Some major changes were made, such as the addition of Production Optics and Production Optics Light to the Handgun rulebook and the eagerly awaited introduction of Pistol Caliber Carbine as a new standalone discipline.

For the sake of clarity, we have chosen to release the minutes of the General Assembly in conjunction with the marked-up versions of the 2019 rulebooks. We would like to thank the Rules Committee for their meticulous work on these documents. Please find all documents discussed at the links below:

    IPSC President Mr. Vitaly Kryuchin

Dear friends, now we are in 42 IPSC general assembly. It is biggest General Assembly in Asia for this moment. And who we are, who are you? Lady and gentlemen, you are the frame, the base of IPSC of our sport! You are developing IPSC in your regions, with a big success. A summary ‐ we have a biggest in the world shooting association. Huge amount of matches, very high level of skill, very honest staff – range officers, very motivated shooters, and you developing and you will make decision how develop our sport in a future to vote. You are helping neighbor regions, who don’t know what does it mean IPSC shooting, it also positive, it also help us to develop IPSC!

Previous IPSC Administration developed our Sport safely many years, and we would like to continue to use everything good what was done to support it and then develop new ideas. If you remember we promise you during election in Chateauroux in France last year to change a Rules, to add some new disciplines and to establish International Instructor Safety Shooting Association? We are doing this! Also we use all our efforts to make our sport internationally recognized by GAISF, by Olympic committee. You will get reports about it later.

Imagine, during the half year more than 2000s emails come inside the rules committee, discussing the rules changes, the proposals from the regions and now we will vote for new disciplines, like a Production Optics, like a Pistol Caliber Carabine (PCC), for juniors. We are talking about developing junior program. How we can develop it if in Europe – in biggest IPSC Zone the junior can use firearms after 18 only. And our present Rules limits Juniors Category by 18 year old? Please vote, support us to have the decision to increase the “Junior” ages to 21, how it was before and create new Category “Super Junior” lower 16 years old.

Constitution Committee – how can administration work? How can work executive council? Imagine if tomorrow I will go to the breakfast and I will not share the cake with IPSC Treasurer and next day I kick him out from his position because I have this right as a President by Constitution. Is it a public organization? Is it a sport? No! We have proposal to be elected: general secretary, treasurer and secretary. You must elect the main Position in IPSC, not a President will find the people whom comfort with.

Now really one year passed of my work, two years left before the President election. How we can follow our purposes, our ideas how we do it? If we add one year as a Olympic committee suggest – 4 years as any other sports are doing election of the president, then we’ll have a more time for work.

GAISF. We’ve been with the big team in a GAISF. We were presented in all main meetings, met the very nice, very powerful people to show them what das Practical Shooting is. Sasja Barentsen, Dimitrios Tzimas, Jimmy Barbuiti, Cecilia Roba some other officials who helped us at this Event! And

now clearly known in a GAISF, also among the Olympic committee members that the Practical Shooting is a sport, respectable sport with a good rules and constitution! Yes, we need to change our Constitution according the International Sports requirements and we’ll do it, but without harm to our IPSC Spirit!

Continental Council. I promised you to establish the Continental Council – IPSC Advising Committee that consists of Regional Directors from Strong IPSC Regions and present the IPSC Zones. It was done! We had 2 Continental Council Meetings in France and in Thailand in proper way and we are understanding our Goals!

Education. IROA Academy start a new level of developing. Education, education, education. Our range officers must be more better, more more professional. I was surprised when I start practical shooting 20 years ago: there were very nice matches, huge of shooters, lot of sponsor, partners, lot of guns, the wonderful strong IPSC regions, very good range officer team! Officials are professionals, volunteers, honor people working not for money, working to develop IPSC, to show to other people, to other athletes how to shoot safely, to have a fun. Although there was no official instructors, trainer, coaches. I mean they are existing of course: who is teaching the beginners, IPSC members? Instructor doing this. But they have no recognition. It is not right! And I promised you that we will launch Instructors, Trainers association. We started to do it. Many MISSIA seminars: Australia, South Africa, Europe, Pan America, here in Asia: two seminars passed. We found out that many good education programs existed in many countries, in many big Regions. And we would like to make our organization, IPSC much stronger, recognize our officials who working at the range and teaching the shooters.

I wish you today to make a right decision. I know some questions need discussions, but you must know that every motion, every word we studied, discussed hundreds hours with a Rules Committee, with a Executive Council and they are adopted. Why we do it, for whom we do it? We do it for shooters, we are working for shooters! Please remember about it when you’ll vote! I wish you good luck and very nice interesting, exciting day. Thank you very much for attention!

IPSC Australia Membership – 2017/18

IPSCA Membership Portal

As of 1 July 2017 new membership or renewal of membership to IPSC Australia is now processed via a central Membership Portal administered by IPSC Australia. New and renewing members are now able to access the newly developed Membership Portal on the IPSC Australia website to submit their membership/renewal application and respective membership fees.

The Membership Portal has been developed to streamline the membership renewal processing and to ensure a high level of security regarding member’s personal information.

As the process is very new, I ask that any queries that you may have are directed in the first instance to the Membership Officer via email membership@ipsc.org.au  These queries can then be forwarded/addressed by either the Membership Officer or by the developers as need be.

PDF versions of each of the membership forms; New/Renewal and Club are available for download from the Membership Portal on the IPSC Australia website. Address and account details are included on the forms, however we strongly urge that you use the Membership Portal. Any payments made via Direct Deposit must be accompanied by the respective receipt so as to allow for confirmation of payment and cross referencing to the member.

The system is aiming to remove the need for forms, their double handling and subsequent delay in the processing of membership cards.

Miscellaneous Notes

Primary / Family and Additional members – The Primary and each additional member attached to a Primary Member will each receive an IPSC Australia renewal notice. However, only the Primary Member’s notice will have the membership fees and payment details. The additional member is required to renew their membership online as per the renewal notice but is not required to submit payment. Payment is solely attached to the Primary Member.

Please note, membership cards will not be processed until payment has been received for each Additional member attached to the Primary Member. Any changes in circumstances should be forwarded to membership@ipsc.org.au
