Go to the IDPA site and find a club that shoots near you. We most all ways require a training cours for new shooters and teach the course right there. IDPA is going through a big chance right now. We are looking at every rule and procedure and making sweeping changes to the rule book. Please be patience if they turn you away at the moment as none of us know what all changes are going to be made to the sport. Which ever way it goes, it will be fun!Wanted to get started in idpa but would like to train it first rather than jumping in not knowing what I am doing any suggestions ?
