2017 IDPA Rule Updates V.2

There are some interesting changes in the 2017 IDPA Rules. First, we are now using fault lines- no more guessing at cover. We have stepped back to the common sense concept of being able to reload on the move for targets in the open. There is a brand new Classifier stage and a modified IDPA target coming out in 2018. The NFC division has been changed to a Specialty Pistol Division (SPD) for those non-compliant handguns and calibers. There is also a new Pistol Caliber Carbine Division- but we're still figuring out how to use it (trench coats for concealment?). Our 2017 match season will start April 1.

Do you regularly carry your handgun? Do you ever practice drawing from your holster or from concealment? Do you know how to use cover if you were ever in a gunfight? Have you heard of International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA)? Richwood Gun and Game Club has two members who have been IDPA Match Directors and several IDPA Safety Officers. We are setting up stage designs for matches in the Pistol Bay. Please check the various links and information on this page regarding IDPA and upcoming matches. We plan on registering the Club with IDPA to conduct sanctioned matches.

You do not need special equipment to shoot in an IDPA match. This sport is designed for "all day carry" firearms and holsters
