We hold our IDPA Matches on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Setup starts at 8am, with the safety briefing starting at around 9am. You need to be present for the safety briefing to shoot the match. These matches, depending on delays, number of shooters, weather, etc, will usually last until 12pm or 1pm. After that we are responsible for packing up all of our equipment into our sheds.
The match fee is $20.
A typical match will have a round count of 80-90 pistol. We however recommend bringing 150 rounds for make-up shots and any possible re-shoots.
After holding our safety briefing, we will conduct a walk through as a group. The stage designer will brief everyone on the scenario for the stage. We typically will have five stages (courses of fire) per match. After going through all of the stages, we will divide up into groups and start shooting. For each stage, each shooter of each group will have an opportunity to shoot. After each shooters, the group will reset the stage and prepare it for the next shooter. New shooters will typically go last, so they can see several examples from more experienced shooters.
