Mecklenburg Defensive Pistol Association is an IDPA affiliated club (Club Number# C0571). As such, we operate the club as generally set forth by IDPA Headquarters. Please review the rules summary below and make sure you agree with them before coming out to one of our matches.

We advocate for IDPA and request our shooters become IDPA members within the first 2-3 matches. Easiest way to sign up is through the website at

Our monthly matches are guided by the official IDPA Rule Book. Exceptions will be noted in course descriptions. It is recommended that new shooters review the rule book for guidelines on rules, penalties, scoring, equipment, matches, etc. You will be provided a new shooter orientation at your first match. This orientation will provide basic instruction regarding safety, rules, range commands, equipment review, etc. If your equipment does not meet safety guidelines you will not be allowed to shoot.

In particular, we will be enforcing the rules regarding equipment, scoring and cover. Please familiarize yourself with the official rule book. We will run the official IDPA Classifier at least twice per year. Please watch this site for announcements regarding when the classifier will be held. It is also our intent to provide Safety Officer training at least once per year. We advocate for all regular shooters to become IDPA Certified Safety Officers. This creates a shooting environment where everyone assists in maintaining safety.
