International Defensive Pistol Association since October 2000. SJDPA is a
chance to practice Defensive shooting skills in a competitive environment.
are divided into four firearm divisions, depending on action type and
caliber. Shooters compete in five different classifications, based on skill
level. A special 90 round classification match is held three times per year
and additional classifiers as necessary. In a match you compete only
against shooters in the same division and classification.
Regularly scheduled matches are held the first Sunday of every month.
Special matches are held occasionally, and shooters will be notified in
advance of any additional matches. Click here

shooters are encouraged to first watch a match and ask questions, as there
are rules and procedures specific to IDPA. We have instructors available to
help with any problems and/or questions, and all new shooters must pass a
safety check, unless they have satisfactory credentials. SAFETY IS OUR
NUMBER ONE CONCERN !!!
