The 2nd annual Arizona State Pistol Caliber Carbine Championship will be hosted by Rio Salado Sportsman's Club (Mesa, AZ) during the last weekend of September (September 28th-30th). We are grateful to Quarter Circle 10 for stepping up as the Title Sponsor this year.
The 2017 match was a big hit, and we are growing it significantly for 2018; more stages, higher round count, bigger prize table, and the option to shoot the entire match in one day (Friday) or over two days (Saturday + Sunday). You can look forward to the same successful formula we pioneered last year... your PCC skills will be tested to the max.
There will be 10 challenging run-n-gun PCC-only stages, with targets ranging from 1 yard to over 100 yards. Ammo count is expected to be around 400 rounds. The generous prize table will be distributed by random draw during the match as each squad rotates through the prize/vendor demo area, and trophies will be awarded in each division according to entries.
The match will be run under IMA-PCC rules (Time-Plus with Points). Equipment divisions will be as follows:
• Open Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine. No other restrictions.
• Limited Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine fitted with non-magnified sights only (red dots, irons and lasers OK). No other restrictions.
• Irons Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine fitted with iron sights only (no optics or lasers).
• Modern Classic Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine based on a submachine gun designed prior to January 1st 1980. This includes popular post-war guns like the Uzi and MP5, but NOT the AR15/9. The general configuration of the firearm, including sighting system, must be reasonably faithful to the original (no optics unless original), and all magazines are limited to 30 rounds.
Registration opens 6pmMST on Friday 15th June at the PractiScore website. The match fee is $195 and includes a free match shirt. Payment will be taken online during registration. Once the match is filled, additional entrants will be placed on a wait list.
REMINDER: Registration opens TODAY at 6pmMST on PractiScore. If you want to be part of this awesomeness, better be quick as we suspect it will fill fast
AZ State PCC Championship Rules Now Allow Pistol Braces
We have received a number of requests to allow pistol braces into the AZ State PCC Championship match. Our previous rules did not allow them, but, in light of the current legal and technical landscape, and after careful consideration, we have concluded that there is no reason to continue with this prohibition. We have amended Rule 4.3 as follows:
4.3 PCCs must be fitted with a shoulder stock or bracing device and must be capable of being fired with three points of contact (two hands plus a shoulder). Pistols derived from rifle designs, and conventional handguns in rifle-like chassis systems, are acceptable provided they can be safely shouldered. Conventional handguns incapable of being shouldered are not allowed. The Range Master will be the final arbiter of whether a particular firearm complies.
This rule applies for all PCC divisions, including Modern Classic. If you have a firearm you wish to use in the match, but you are not sure if it is allowed, simply send us a photo and we will be happy to give you a timely ruling.

LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER - the match closes on Friday.
Well, the AZ State PCC Championship is in the record books. The results are up on PractiScore.
By all accounts, everyone had a great time. You can find lots of comments and video at the match FaceBook and Instagram.
The random draw prize bags were exceptional - pretty much everyone got at least their entry fee back in cool stuff (I won a Quarter Circle 10 9mm barrel and upper, plus a SpeedBeez magazine loader).
HUGE thanks to our title sponsor Quarter Circle 10, premier sponsor Gibbz Arma, division sponsors Riton Optics, VLTOR and Elftmann Tactical. and all of our other awesome sponsors: MOA Targets, KE Arms, LUTH-AR, Springfield Armory, Vortex Optics, Quentin Defense, Speed Beez, Ballistic Advantage, Safariland, Aero Precision, VG6 Precision, and Dillon Precision.
