A half of them is engaged in practical shooting - the club priority. The bet on co-operation with the Czech Republic military forces, mainly the land forces command. With their help they organize contests in the areas owned by the army, for example, the shooting ranges in the army training centre Boletice near Český Krumlov. Those shooting ranges enable to organize contests in practical shooting of a very high quality with a large number of participants due to their huge area and safeness.

Most of the club shooters are also members of The Practical Shooting Association in the Czech Republic which is the superior authority included in the international association IPSC /International Practical Shooting Association/ established in Canada. The club shooters participate in national and international shooting contests to represent our district in the whole world. National contests are divided into club and campaign competitions, Moravian and Czech Cup and Extraleague APS ČR is the highest competition. The Czech Republic Championship is the top event of the season. All contests are divided into the levels of difficulty.

Level I. - club contests
Level II. - Moravian and Czech Cup
Level III. - international contests /European League/
Level IV. - European and World Championship

Practical shooting lays special emphases on the safeness. It is assigned to all civilian, police and military forces institutions. It does not have a character of just one defmitely formed group of people. Situations are formed to provide the same conditions for juniors and seniors without any advantages of their age or physique and give the possibility to use the gun in diffrent situations which can happen in the real life. The shooting does not have the attack character. We shoot from the place or on the move at certain types of targets. Each situation evokes a feeling of self-defence and defence of someone else or property.

Each club member is willing to help people interested in shooting and give advice all the beginners. The shooting range in Domoradice near Český Krumlov can be used by the beginners after prepaying. It can be used free of charge by the club members after the agreement. The members make decisions about the club activities. They regularly meet on the first Monday each month and in January on the annual meeting.
