What is IDPA ?

From “IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated ‘real world’ 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 an individual.”

IDPA at Wayne County Raccoon Hunters Club

All IDPA Matches, Practices, and Classifiers are open to the public. You do not need to be a member of the Raccoon Hunters Club.

IDPA Matches

Our monthly IDPA matches are held at 10 a.m. on the 3rd Saturday of the month from April thru October. Registration opens at 9:00 a.m., 2 weeks before the match at under “Wayne County Raccoon Hunters Club – IDPA“. Any additional matches will be posted in the IDPA Special Events and News section below. ALL events are also posted on the Events Calendar.

The cost is $25, and $20 for WCRHC members with a current membership card. 

The Safety Briefing / Shooter’s Meeting starts 15 minutes before each match.

In order to minimize contact with the Staff, there will be no walk-in registration or payment to our IDPA matches.  Payment and waiver agreement will take place during your on-line registration.

When they arrive, shooters are asked to practice distancing to holster up at the Safe Area tables, stop at the range building window to announce they have arrived, and then proceed directly to their bay and stay there until we gather for the Shooter’s Meeting / Safety Briefing before the start of the match.

We will be practicing social-distancing wherever possible. Please be aware that wearing a mask while outdoors is an individual choice, as is attending this match. By attending you agree that you are willing to accept any liability that may come from un-masked faces. If you are not comfortable with that, please do not attend. 

PCC:  With the exception of BUG Matches, we are now allowing PCC guns to be used in our IDPA matches / practices. The gun must be carried muzzle down in a gun bag or secured in a gun cart, and with an open chamber flag inserted. The gun and flag will only be removed when the shooter is at the firing line in preparation for a low-ready start. Once shooting has ceased, the gun will be cleared and flagged, and re-inserted in the gun bag or gun cart to be carried from the line.

IDPA Match Results will be posted on PractiScore


IDPA Practices

Summer IDPA Practices are held every Wednesday, April thru September. In-person Sign-Up / Registration opens at 5:00 and closes at 5:45 to allow the staff time time to complete the registration and squadding. The cost is $10 per shooter. Practice starts promptly at 6:00pm. A cease fire is called from 4:30PM to 6PM for setup on IDPA practice days.

Winter IDPA Practices are held every Saturday morning from 10:00 am till noon, starting with the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. Details will be posted on this page above during that season, as well as on the calendar.

Holsters: For safety’s sake we are limiting holsters to IDPA-approved holsters only during any of our practices. (Matches have always been this way.)  In the event someone arrives at a practice without an IDPA-approved holster, we will allow a bagged gun to be carried to and from the firing line to support a low-ready start.

Any additional practices will be posted in the IDPA Special Events and News section below. ALL events are also posted on the Events Calendar.

IDPA Classifiers

IDPA Classifiers will be run the 1st Wednesday of every month during IDPA Practice at 6:00 p.m. Cost is $10 to just run the Classifier, or free if you have already paid to shoot the practice that night.

Please contact Geff Bush ( for any questions concerning the Wednesday night Classifiers.
