NEW SHOOTERS
If you are new to IDPA, we ask that you do not gear up until we meet to discuss basic IDPA safety and competition rules. As a reminder, we run a "cold range"- no firearms are to be loaded except under the command of a Safety Officer when it's your turn to shoot a stage. Handguns can only be handled at the Safety Table or under the direction of an S.O. Also, there is NO handling of ammunition or ammunition carriers (mags, speedloaders, etc.) at the safety table. Failure to abide by these rules will result in a match disqualification. Please feel free to ask a Safety Officer or the Match Director if you have any questions regarding our safety rules.
