Waterloo Rifle and Pistol Club is an affiliated International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) Club. WRPC IDPA matches are held on the second Saturday of each month. Matches are open to the public and newcomers are welcome. Course scenarios are designed to simulate potentially life-threatening encounters and test skills that would be required to survive such an encounter. Matches will consist of 4 to 6 stages. Concealed handgun license holders - men and women alike - can learn and practice self-defense tactics for responsible concealed carry and enhanced personal security, competitive shooters can enjoy the pistol match competition, and everyone can shoot for personal improvement or just for fun. Please check the club calendar for the upcoming match dates and times.
IDPA is an all season sport. During the Spring, Summer and Fall IDPA is hosted outside at the pistol range where stage designs gets ramped up to incredibly creative, challenging and fun events. In the Winter months, when most shooting sports take a break, IDPA moves indoors where it creates a completely different set of fun challenges and stage development.
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.

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 IDPA. “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.
