International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA), founded in 1996, is a pistol shooting sport that uses defensive techniques and concealed carry to handle simulated real world encounters in a competitive environment. It can be enjoyed by a new shooter as well as remain challenging and rewarding for the advanced shooter.
Through regular practice and competition events you will hone your self-defence skills, speed, accuracy and quick reaction time in working through a variety of real-life scenarios.
IDPA is geared toward the average person, using common production un-customized handguns, side holsters, magazines and equipment to engage in realistic defensive shooting situations. The goal is to test the competitor’s skill and abilities, not the equipment or gamesmanship. Competition only gear is not permitted
