We created this league to help participants learn, train, and practice their defensive handgun skills in a competitive environment, all while having fun. Our league is a scenario-based, handgun-centric shooting-training activity that meets twice per month.

The training-competition format was designed to be enjoyable to all shooters of all skill levels, with a premium put on the social interaction and fellowship of the members. Participation in league matches requires the use of handguns, holsters and other equipment suitable for concealed carry self-defense. With that in mind, we have established equipment requirements that remain based on commonly available firearms and gear that allows individuals the opportunity to train and compete with minimal investment. Gear and equipment that would not normally be carried by citizens in an everyday carry situation are not allowed in the league. Our main goal is to learn, enhance, practice, and test the skill and ability of the individual, not his equipment.
