The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is a safe, fun, shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real life encounters.
One of the unique facets of this sport is that it is geared toward the new or average shooter, yet is fun, challenging and rewarding for the experienced shooter. The founders developed the sport so that practical gear and practical guns may be used competitively. A shooter can spend a minimal amount on equipment and still be competitive.
The main goal is to test the skill and ability of the individual, not equipment or gamesmanship. "Competition only" equipment is not permitted in this sport.
We operate as an authorized and fully affiliated sub-club of the Oak Ridge Sportsmen's Association and follow all the rules as set forth by the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) parent organization.
