With the changing of the leaves comes the end of the 2011 handgun shooting season. The GADPA (Greater Atlanta Defensive Pistol Association) 2011 Georgia State IDPA match is full! If you haven’t registered you can get on the waiting list. A sold out match proves IDPA in Georgia is popular and competitive shooting is still on the rise and gaining new members every day.
The match will be held on Saturday October 29th, 2011 at South River Gun Club. You know SRGC is Carducci Tactical’s home gun range here in Georgia and is proud to be hosting the Georgia State Championship.
From the GADPA website we found more information about the competition. Looks like this year’s IDPA championship will impress you with challenging stages. You might want to start dry fire exercises now and spend a day or two at the range in preparation.
This year’s match will be a one day event and will consist of a 13 stage course of fire. Stages will include: pneumatic and electronic movers, a shoot house and a side match on the plate rack. The round count will be approximately 200 rounds. This match will have a shotgun start (no squads) so you may shoot with whoever you wish.
There will be a registration tent next to the scoring trailer on the day of the match. Shooters may pick up their badges and shooter package there. Registration will begin at 7:00 AM on the day of the match. The fist shot will be fired at 8:00 AM so please arrive early.
Awards will be given per the latest edition of the IDPA rule book. For each division, trophies will be awarded to the following classes: marksman, sharpshooter, expert and master. We will also recognize the following sub-divisions: senior, high lady, high junior and high law enforcement. Trophies will be awarded to the DC and the first 3 places. Certificates will be awarded to those placing 4th or higher.
Our match sponsors have generously donated a number of prizes that will be given away at random. Glock has donated guns for our prize table. One drawing will be open to all shooters and the other drawing will be open to the Safety Officer and match staff.
We have purchased a separate gun that will be raffled during the awards ceremony. Tickets can be purchased at the side match table. You must be present to win. With each ticket purchased, you get a free run on the plate rack.
Bring plenty of extra ammo if you want to challenge your friends on the Bianchi plate rack. This is just for fun and is not an official stage. The cost to shoot the plates is $1.00 per string. Separate trophies will be awarded for this event.
Good look at the event and we will see you on the range!
