WHAT IS IHMSA?

The IHMSA organization started in 1976 with the purpose of promoting handgun silhouette competition. The object of the competition is to knock down metallic silhouettes (chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams) at various ranges to a maximum of 200 meters. The sport has spread to many countries and matches are shot all over the USA. Many of the innovations you see in hand gunning today came from the sport of Pistol Silhouettes and the International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association.


SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Many different types of matches are shot and there is always one to suit any member of the family. The matches vary according to handgun type ( Air Pistol to .22 to big bore) and shooting position (standing to free style). We pride ourselves in our diversity as IHMSA is open to men, women and children of all ages and physical abilities.


IT’S SIMPLE AND EXCITING!

Hit a steel target and knock it over. You will find silhouette shooters helpful and friendly and more than willing to go out of their way to assist you. The game is actually very simple and you probably already own a handgun that qualifies for competition. It will make you the absolute best pistol shot you can be!
