International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is a shooting sport that simulates “real world” self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. One of the unique facets of this sport is that it is geared toward the new or average shooter, yet is fun, challenging and rewarding for the experienced shooter. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, not equipment or gamesmanship. A typical club match will consist of 6 stages with real world scenarios where shooters engage the targets using appropriate sequence (i.e. near to far) while using cover. Strong hand, weak hand only, shooting on the move or from a vehicle are some of the situations encountered during a match.
- Open to public.
- After third match must be an IDPA member. Membership is also required for classifier and Tier 2 (or higher) matches.
