Michigan Area

Welcome to the IDPA Michigan Area Website!

Here you will find information about all the IDPA clubs and matches that are happening in Michigan.

What is IDPA?  IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) is an action shooting sport that uses practical equipment with defensive service ammunition to shoot simulated self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of each individual in fun, competitive courses of fire.

New shooters are welcome and encouraged to come out and try IDPA.  Bring a handgun suitable for self defense, 150 rounds of ammunition, a belt-mounted holster that covers the trigger guard, concealment garment, and at least 3 magazines to join the fun.

​This website should provide useful information on where to find a club nearest to you, when each club shoots IDPA matches, club contact people, where to take Safety Officer training, and a whole lot more!

Of course, the IDPA main website also has more information - including information on: how to join IDPA, matches and clubs across the country (and the world), etc.  Check it out at:  www.idpa.com

See you all on the range!
