Welcome to the Northwest Florida Defensive Pistol Shooters!
the local chapter of IDPA -- the International Defensive Pistol
Association. As stated on the IDPA website, "IDPA as a sport is
quite simply the use of practical equipment including full charge
service ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense
scenarios. Shooters competing in IDPA events are required to use
practical handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self-defense
use. No “competition only” equipment is permitted in IDPA matches since
the main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, not his
equipment or gamesmanship."
Third Sunday and fourth Saturday of each month.

Each shooter must have equipment suitable
for self-defense (see www.idpa.com for
specifics). A minimum of two magazines and 100 rounds of ammunition
will be required, although three or more magazines makes the match go a
lot easier. The weapon must be drawn from a holster that meets IDPA
Each month we usually hold a side match
for either rifles or shotguns immediately following the pistol match. It
will be a stage of typical IDPA design, with targets ranging from
contact distance to the berm (approximately 100 yards). If you plan on
shooting this stage, please bring a center-fire rifle of your choice
with 2 magazines or a shotgun and approximately 40 rounds of ammo.
It will be totally open as to type of sights open, scope, red dot,
etc. and type of action bolt, semi-auto, <no
full auto allowed on the range> even single shot,
if you so desire :-). The only real requirement is that it
be a safe working firearm that you are familiar with.
