IDPA - The Range St. Louis West
IDPA is International Defensive Pistol Association. IDPA is a shooting sport based on defensive pistol techniques, using equipment including full-charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in defensive pistol events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are deemed suitable for self-defense use. Great for new shooter and those who want to get practice with their CCW set up. We will shoot 3 or more stages per match. Rules and sign up for IDPA at www.idpa.com
