IDPA is the governing body of a world wide pistol sport based on concealed carry. Pistols are placed in 4 catagories, and shooters are placed in 5 classifications. Only similar pistols, and skill levels shoot against each other. We shoot 6-8 stages per Match, about 150 rds should get you through. There are about 22,000 competitors in 50 countries. All IDPA members shoot the same classifier. This allows you to see where your skills are compared to shooters all over the world.
These competitions are based on IMG 3 Gun rules. A Shooting Sport that uses pistol, Rifle, and Shotgun with Firearm transitions. This a fast paced run and gun sport. Load your mags all the way up and solve the stage as you determine. Shots will be from point blank, to 300 yds.
