Asheville Practical Shooting Association

The Asheville Practical Shooting Association (APSA) was formed in the mid 1970’s as Asheville Practical Pistol League, during the time when Practical Shooting was still in it’s early stages. In 1991, APSA became an official 501-3c Non-Profit entity. APSA was the first club in North Carolina to become a USPSA affiliated club.

Over the years, we have seen many changes and have moved our shooting location a number of times, from shooting in a cow pasture in Burnsville, NC to a more refined range in Lake Lure, then back to the Burnsville-Green Mountain area and our new home at Triggers, Traps & Trout .
