Action Pistol is very similar to IDPA in that it uses relaxed IDPA rules to accommodate basic procedures and firearms training. We keep IDPA scoring but shed the prescriptive rules on gear, stage design, cover, concealment, amount of movement and order of target engagement. Our focus is on safe gun handling, learning match procedures and just having a good time. Matches are held on the fourth Saturday of the month. Please check the club calendar for the upcoming match dates and times.
Action Pistol is an all season sport. During the Spring, Summer and Fall matches are hosted outside at the pistol range where stage designs get ramped up to incredibly creative, challenging and fun events. In the Winter months, when most shooting sports take a break, Action pistol moves indoors where it creates a completely different set of fun challenges and stage development.
Anyone could begin in Action Pistol and easily transition to IDPA, USPSA and even matches run under 3-Gun rules with relative ease.
There will be a "Shooters Meeting" prior to each match and all shooters are REQUIRED to attend. The safety instructions and other information specific to the match will be discussed at the meeting. If you do not attend the shooters meeting, you cannot shoot the match. More information on rules and required equipment is available at the IDPA home page www.idpa.com.
Firearms and Equipment
A pistol caliber handgun, either semi-automatic or revolver (bullet velocities under 1,500 FPS), a holster which covers at least up to the ejection port or cylinder of the handgun, minimally 3 magazines or 4 speed loaders/moon clips, cover garment which can be a jacket or zippered sweater that will cover the firearm completely when worn, eye protection and hearing protection.
How to sign up for a match
WRPC utilizes Practiscore for its matches. Registration opens shortly after a match for the following month match. The Practiscore link to register for the match will be posted in the club calendar event for Action Shooting. “Walk-Ins” are welcome but we prefer registration through Practiscore so that match personnel can set up enough squads and have enough space for everyone to participate.
