GECO Glossary


IPSC, which can be best described as sporting motion shooting in various long and short gun disciplines, is carried out worldwide by the International Practical Shooting Confederation ( in more than 85 countries.
This rapid and fascinating form of sport requires an outstandingly high safety awareness in the handling of the weapon, as the shooter moves around in a room with a loaded weapon and shoots according to a given course setup.
Since its foundation in the mid-seventies, IPSC has – and not just due to the high qualification standards – an immaculate safety record.
Worldwide in thousands of national, regional and international competitions, there has never been a case of death.

IPSC is recognized as a sport in more than 85 countries of the world (so-called regions) (also in Germany it was examined and approved by the Federal Administrative Court in long-drawn-out and careful proceedings), partially within the framework of the Olympic shooting sport associations and often also with direct support of the respective government.
