IDPA Boot Camp

Running from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day, we will concentrate on developing our handgun shooting skills and IDPA Competition specific skills. Course content will cover ALL aspects of IDPA shooting, including, but not limited to: Concealed carry draw, tactical and speed reloads, multiple targets, moving targets, one handed shooting, low light shooting with and without flashlights, and position shooting as one might find in a typical match.

We understand the ammo crunch. This class can be shot with as little as a few hundred rounds. It's up to the student to manage their ammo as most of the stage drills may be run dry or live fire. Many could be done with a SIRT, Cool-Fire, or similar as long as you have a holster for it.

Enrollment limited to the first 12 sign ups. Must be an IDPA member AND hold at least a Marksman classification to participate. This is not a beginner-level class. If you are not classified or are classified as a novice, please contact use before registering and consider taking our Intro to IDPA class which will be posted soon.
