The International Defensive Pistol Association 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 a 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!
If you are interested in using truly practical pistols to solve challenging and exciting defensive shooting problems, then IDPA is the sport for you.
Your local IDPA club is Sacramento Defensive Pistol Shooters, based out of the Sacramento Valley Shooting Center in Ione, CA. Their monthly match is held on the first Sunday of each month.
