IDPA is a great introduction to competition for experienced shooters who have never shot a match. But even as straightforward as it is, shooting a match with no prior experience can be stressful and confusing (particularly the scoring!).
To expose new competitors to IDPA we have a one stage Intro/Practice Match on the 4th Wednesday evening of each month so that they can see what it is all about – and for experienced shooters to come out and get in a little practice. The match fee will be $5.00 for both members and non-members. Times may vary so please check the Rio Salado calendar.
New shooters will be able to shoot the stage at a controlled pace under the direction supervision of a match director, and do not need to have taken the PSSC.
Experienced shooters can run the stage or even just parts of it multiple times. If you are a Rio Salado member authorized to use the bays at night and would like to shoot on your own on another bay you will have access to props like poppers and swingers and max traps while the Intro/Practice match is running.
Initially there is no registration required. New shooters should NOT handle their guns or gear until they have signed in.
