The Whiteman Park International Shooting Complex, within which Pine Valley Pistol Club is located, has been closed as of 2100 Friday, 27 March 2020.
Access to the complex will be denied to all MEMBERS and VISITORS of all the ballistic disciplines within the complex until further notice.
The main complex gates will be locked.
The period of the closure has yet to be determined, however the PVPC Committee will be liaising closely with the WPISC Council regularly to monitor the situation.
The PVPC Committee would like to thank its members in advance for their understanding and cooperation during this period of uncertainty.
Pine Valley Pistol Club is home to the largest IPSC pistol club in Western Australia and is one of the largest IPSC clubs in country. Situated within the Whiteman Park International Shooting in the Perth Northern suburbs, PVPC has arguably the best facilities of any club within IPSC Australia that only shoots IPSC and ICORE. Currently with 17 ranges, Pine Valley Pistol Club offers a lot of variety when it comes to the design of our stages.
The International Practical Shooting Confederation is the ruling body of this exciting shooting sport. IPSC pistol shooting involves moving through courses of fire shooting at paper and steel targets with specialised target pistols. The sports motto of DVC – Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (Accuracy, Power, Speed) reflects the style of shooting where competitors move at high speed and solve complex shooting problems in a freestyle manner. IPSC is a great spectator sport and it is more akin to an extreme sport than the traditional slow fire pistol shooting seen at the Olympics.
If you think that this could be something for you, we encourage you to come along to the club on a weekend to see what it’s all about. Our members will be happy to take the time and explain what IPSC is all about, show you around the club and make sure that all your questions are answered.
This website contains everything you need to know about IPSC, Pine Valley Pistol Club, shooting as a sport, joining the club as well as the training and licensing process. Our members (specifically the trainers) are always happy to provide answers to any questions you might have, but make sure you take a look through the page as the majority of what you’re going to be asking will be located somewhere here.
If you’ve had a look at the site, watched the videos and you think that IPSC is something you want to get into, well you’re in the right place! Head on over to our Training Pages, to find out what’s involved in the training process (which is mandatory if you’re joining the club) as well as how you can put your name down to register for the next training course.
