Welcome to the PPLA webpage.

PPLA is Victoria’s largest IPSC club with fantastic facilities that ensure we can shoot all 3 disciplines of IPSC.

As an introduction to PPLA and IPSC, you may like to watch the video above.

Situated at  the SSAA Eagle Park range complex at Little River, we have access to 23  pistol ranges which can be used for shotgun and rifle competition as  well. Thus the ability of PPLA to run pistol, rifle and shotgun  competitions put us in a position envied by many. We have a fully  self-contained clubhouse with all facilities; kitchen, toilets, showers, TV and a great fire to keep us warm in winter.

Our range  has hosted many National and International events over the years  including the IPSC National Championships, IPSC Australasian  Championships, Steel Challenge Nationals and the World Police and Fire  Games.

PPLA is an  IPSC only club, in that we only compete in the one discipline. IPSC is  the fastest, most action orientated pistol sport in the world.  Competitors use only full power handguns with a minimum caliber of 9mm.  IPSC originated in the US in the early 1950’s and has become a favorite  in over 80 countries around the world. More information on IPSC can be  found at

PPLA has  approximately 100 members and runs regular competitions on the third  Sunday of each month. Specialized training days for new members are on  the first Sunday of each month, although every Sunday is a training day  for new and not so new members. Results can be found on the results  page.

PPLA members are amongst the best shooters in the country, with members and previous members being major winners at many State and National Championships.  PPLA also has within its members, leading National and International  Range Officials. Without these Officials, matches would not function.

So please  feel free to contact the President if you require more information about joining what we like to describe as Australia’s Premier Club.
