Match Information

Scores and match descriptions

Typical stage setup

There is a very active competitive shooting community in Southern California. In addition to the matches run by the Oceanside Practical Pistol Club many other local clubs hold regularly scheduled matches. Use the links below to learn more about the types of matches we hold, or to learn more about other matches in the area. We try and keep our event calendar up to date with all local events of interest, if you know of a local event that isn't listed drop us a line and let us know about it. Recent match scores are available directly from the menu bar at the top of every web page at, or click here to go directly to the online score sheets. The club also maintains a low-volume mailing list that can notify when new scores have been posted or when there is a scheduling change.


The club owns a large (and ever growing) variety of props that allow for a wide variety of shooting scenarios. In addition to standard steel targets and a wide range of cardboard target stands we have a free-standing doorway, 8 free-standing wall segments, many smaller wall segments, drop-turner and swinging targets, more than a dozen barrels. A more complete list can be found on our props page.
