Defensive pistol shooting as a sport is the use of practical equipment including full power ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios.  Shooters competing in Defensive Pistol events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use.  No “competition only” equipment is permitted in Defensive Pistol matches.

Reminder: Effective Jan. 1, 2020, Universal classifications will be removed from all member records. After that time, a member who has not obtained the classification of Master or Distinguished Master in that specific division who cares to compete in a sanctioned match, will be required to have shot a classifier during the previous 12-month timeframe. This information must be in their official profile online, for the same division they are competing in before being eligible to shoot the match. As of 1/1/2020, members must have a classifier or match bump based classification in the division in which they wish to shoot in order to compete in a sanctioned event.”

Typical monthly matches will contain at least five courses of fire. 

Shooters new to the sport will be required to participate in a safety check and New Shooter Briefing.  First-time shooters are not required to be members of IDPA, but will need to be for all subsequent matches. 

IDPA equipment is brief and simple.  Any handgun, holster, magazine or other equipment that can reasonably be used for concealed carry can be used at an IDPA match.  The minimum caliber requirement is 9mm/38 Special.  No more than four magazines can be carried on you for a single stage: one in the gun, two in magazine holders and a fourth in a pocket to top the gun off.  More magazines are helpful to keep the match moving smoothly, but not necessary.  150 rounds of ammunition will be adequate for the entire match.  In keeping with the spirit of IDPA, all matches will require a cover garment.  Please bring your favorite form of cover to the match.

Carry Optics and PCC will be allowed during our monthly matches (PCC will not be allowed for our Level III sanctioned, Liberty, match at this time).  Division will be listed on Practiscore as Carry Optics and PCC.  All IDPA rules apply for the guns to be used in that division.  We are using the IDPA 2022 rules.  However, we are not allowing appendix carry at this time.
