Currently there are no USPSA events planned.  Please check back for updates.

Welcome to our website for the Colorado River Area  Practical Shooters.  Those that are interested in shooting with us must realize there is a skill level required to compete with an organized club such as CRAPS.  The rules of the USPSA are very clear regarding equipment, ammo, and most important … safety.  One must have the ability to complete the courses of fire safely USPSA Headquarters strongly recommends that individual clubs assign an experienced shooter/range officer to administer a basic safety program for shooters who have not completed in any action or practical shooting.We realize that each and every one of you wishes to shoot and compete to the best of your ability.  Perhaps, you just acquired a new pistol and need practice time to become comfortable with it, know its features, and have time to ask questions regarding features you are unfamiliar with.  As a precaution, the club and range officers have discussed the need for this training.

About Us

We are an independent club who adhere to all rules published by the USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) with an emphasis on safety.

The Safety Protocols outlined below are designed to keep everyone safe. It is your responsibility to know them; someone’s life may depend on it. If you do not understand them, ask a Range Officer to go over them with you. Any violation of any safety rule is grounds for your immediate removal from the range for the day. A second offense will result in your permanent expulsion from club activity.
