IDPA is 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 Organization The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real life encounters. It was founded in 1996 as a response to the desires of shooters worldwide. The organization now boasts membership of more than 22,000, including members in 50 foreign countries. IDPA offers an exciting forum for practical shooters in which truly practical equipment, techniques and courses of fire are mandated. Prior to IDPA, there was no place to compete with common service pistols. There were no shooting sports where your concealed carry holster could also be your match holster without handicap. When you come to an IDPA match, you can not only use your duty / CCW equipment, you can be completely competitive with it! Other shooting sports have become equipment “races”; IDPA will not. If you’re interested in using truly practical pistols to solve challenging and exciting defensive shooting problems, then IDPA is the sport for you. Learn more about what makes IDPA great, from the practical skills training rules, the variety of matches, the wide range of competitors and the ever growing community.
IDPA Matches Centennial Gun Club is an active IDPA member Club. CGC is fortunate to have a crew of several SO’s, an MD, as well as many volunteers, to organize, setup, and work the matches. CGC has one match per month on the 1st Sunday.
Please come out and help set up and break down. This IS a volunteer sport.
To shoot the IDPA Sunday match you will need the following:
- Eye protection (required)
- Ear protection (required)
- Pistol or revolver meeting IDPA equipment requirements (see note 1)
- Strong-side hip holster meeting IDPA equipment requirements
- Magazines, speedloaders or moonclips (see note 2)
- Double magazine pouch, single mag pouches, speedloader holders, or moonclip holders, as appropriate (see note 3)
- Sturdy gun belt fitting holster and magazine holder slots securely
- Cover garment (MANDATORY): Vest, jacket, coat, long shirt, etc.
- Ammunition meeting the IDPA minimum power factor (see note 4)
- Range or gym bag to carry the above items
- 1) Practical concealed-carry or police patrol-type guns only – No highly-specialized competition-type guns are allowed in IDPA.
- 2) You will need a sufficient number of magazines, speedloaders or moonclips (generally, two or three at a minimum, depending on equipment division) to complete an 18-round-maximum course of fire using only these ammunition carriers (plus, for pistols, one additional round in the chamber at the start of the course of fire).
- 3) Be aware that IDPA limits the number of rounds in a magazine to ten in the ESP and SSP equipment divisions, and to eight in CDP division. Revolvers in ESR and SSR divisions are limited to six rounds in the cylinder.
- 4) You will need magazine / speedloader / moonclip holders to carry all but your first magazine, speedloader, or moonclip, which will be used to load the gun at the start of the course of fire.
- 5) Bring enough ammo. If you do not know how many stages you will be shooting at a match, or what the total round count is expected to be, then bring at least 150 rounds. While this may result in bringing too much ammo, this is certainly better than not bringing enough! There is no such thing as a “typical” IDPA match, so there is just no way to guess.
- 6)Please keep in mind the following quote from the IDPA rulebook when selecting IDPA equipment: Your IDPA equipment must be suitable and practical for all-day concealed-carry use. Commissioned law enforcement officers and active-duty military personnel may use their standard-issue duty gear.
