International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) shoots take place the first
Saturday of the month, weather permitting (please see bottom of this page for
2017 schedule). Defensive pistol shooting 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 are required to use practical
handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self defense use. No
“competition only” equipment is permitted in defensive pistol matches since the
main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, not his or her equipment
IDPA is a sport growing in popularity in our area. The structure and rules create
an even playing field for shooters of all abilities, new or veteran, revolvers or
semi-automatics, male or female - it is just plain fun! Regular shoots include
anywhere from 4 - 6 stages and often include both pistols and shotguns. Click
here for a video example of a few IDPA stages taken at MBSC.
Safety rules and practices are STRICTLY enforced. Shooters will only have
their gun out of their holster or ammo in their gun when instructed to do so by
trained and qualified safety officers on the firing line. Anyone not following the
safety rules or commands of the safety officers will be, without question,
escorted off the property and asked not to return.
Safety briefings start at 9:00 and stage shooting starts immediately following.
Fees: Members = $10.00 per person
Guests/Visitors = $15.00 per person
2017 IDPA SCHEDULED DATES

There has been growing interest in IDPA and many new participants have
come forward wishing to take part in the event. To aid these new shooters,
as well as ensure safety for all participants, MBSC will be implementing a
new "First Time Shooter Introduction to IDPA" class. Anyone who hasn't
shot in a real-time IDPA match will be required to complete this class prior
to shooting at MBSC. This class is currently being structured and scheduled.
Please check back for schedule and and information on how to register to
take this class.
