History and Profile

The Queensland Police Pistol Club Inc. (QPPC) was originally established in 1963 as the Pistol Activities Section of the Queensland Police Rifle Club by a group of officers seeking to improve their knowledge and skill in relation to their Service-related handguns.  Since that time the QPPC has formed part of the Australian Police Pistol Association, and teams from all member clubs compete at an annual championship event hosted by state and territory police pistol clubs across the country.

The main focus of the QPPC has historically been the Australian Police and Service Match, which is a marksmanship event consisting of 90 rounds in total and fired across several stages ranging in distance from 50 metres to 7 metres (the full match can be viewed on the ‘match’ page).  The APSM is the marksmanship match that is contested at National Championship level as previously described.  The QPPC also has the ability to run the more dynamic pistol shooting disciplines such as ‘Practical Pistol’ and ‘Action Match’.
