IDPA Match

Our IDPA match is based around the use of practical equipment, including full charge service ammunition, to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.

The IDPA match community is made up of shooters like you who are looking to test and improve their skills through the structure of competition. While time and accuracy measure a shooter’s skill, it’s the fun and excitement of spending the day on the range with other like-minded individuals that is the true reflection of our community.

BECOME A BETTER, WELL ROUNDED SHOOTER!

Draw Process

Almost every stage we shoot starts with drawing from the holster.  This is great self defense practice.

Reloading

The only thing worse than not having your pistol is having your pistol run dry.  Our Dynamic Pistol match gets you used to reloading under pressure.

Shooting On

The Move

Nobody wants to be an easy target, so we do a lot of shooting on the move.

Situational Awareness

Dynamic Pistol matches teach you how to avoid getting tunnel vision when shooting under pressure.

Shooting Positions

We shoot from every position known to man.

Strong and Weak Hand

Life likes to throw us curve balls so we practice shooting two handed, right handed, and left handed

Rapid Fire

Everyone loves to shoot fast.  Our Dynamic pistol match teaches you to shoot faster and more accurately.

Transitions

Most shooters can pull a trigger fast but what separates good shooters from great shooters is how fast you transition from target to target.
