Shooting Disciplines What is IDPA?

International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is an action shooting sport that uses semi-automatic handguns and revolvers with a strong emphasis on concealed shooting. Many aspects of stage engagement are dictated to competitors and penalties are given to competitors whom the safety officer determines attempted to gain a competitive advantage or engaged in a forbidden action with a “guilty mind” – that he knowingly failed to do right.

IDPA Story

IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated real-world self-defence scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defence 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-defence scenarios and real-life encounters. It was founded in 1996 as a response to the desires of shooters worldwide. The organization now boasts a membership of more than 25,000, including members in 70 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.
