Multiple Classification?

I am a new shooter. Sometimes I like to shoot single stack major and sometimes I enjoy shooting production minor. Can I only be qualified/classified in one class? Can I be, say, a level C in SS and a B in a Production Minor, or do I have to pick one class and stay with it forever?

You can have as many classifications in USPSA as you want. The only rule is you have to shoot 4 classifiers to be classified and once you have one classification, your other classifications will only be one level lower than you highest class. Someone else will have to address other disciplines.

In USPSA you can shoot all the divisions and shoot classifiers in all the divisions...

And then you will be classified in each one assuming you have AT LEAST 4 classifiers shot in each division.

You can have different classes (example B in single stack and C in production) but there is a rule where you can't be two below your highest classification.

Example is...

I'm a B in single stack.

If I was to shoot lets say revolver... and I shot 4 classifiers that totalled up to a "D classificaiton" in revolver division... I will have below 39.9% score but I will have a "C class" classification on my membership card.

Look at some of the Grand masters (GMs) that are classified in multiple divisions... They will not have a classificaiton lower than Master (M) in any division... even if their scored % on the classifier is a A, B or C.

I would assume this is done with the assumption that GMs can compete with Masters in every other division... and so sand bagging doesn't occur.

IDPA allows, encourages classification in all divisions.
They will cheerfully sell you a Five Gun certificate.
