Welcome to Big Panda Performance!!! Big Panda Performance was founded by Charlie Perez (aka The Big Panda) who is a Top 10 ranked competitive practical shooter and trainer. In 2008 I started participating in practical shooting matches (USPSA, IDPA, & Steel Challenge) and have focused my efforts on being the best I can be. This dedication to perfecting shooting performance allowed me to achieve a Grand Master Classification in USPSA Limited division within a year and a half of starting. Achieving this dramatic increase in performance was not only gained from hard work, but also by attending many training classes from world class practical shooters. Using the skill learned from these world class shooters I have attend over 100 major matches across the nation and countless club matches with great success. These practical shooting accomplishments have allowed me the opportunity to represent several firearms sponsors while on and off the range. My extensive competition shooting experience, dedication to achieving the next level of performance, and a focused training program enable me to compete at the highest levels within the practical shooting sports.
