The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real life encounters.

Participants are required to join IDPA after 3 shooting matches.

This sport is geared toward the new or average shooter. It is also fun, challenging and rewarding for the experienced shooter.

The main goal is to test the skill and ability of the individual, not equipment or gamesmanship.

Reserved ranges are listed on the Club Calendar. See requirements and equipment list below. For the most up-to-date information about matches and rules, follow the link.

Skills Drills

This is a non-competitive, timed practice shoot with center fire pistols, drawn from the holster. It is made up of a series of short scenarios, usually 6 to 12 shots with one magazine change, shot from a standing position. A squad of eight or more will shoot at the same time so everybody can practice often.

For beginners, it is a great way to learn some of the necessary skills used in IDPA matches in a safe, low key, environment. For the more experienced shooters, it is a great way to hone their skills to perfection. There will be beginners plus some great IDPA shooters to learn from.
