The 2017 end of year rulebook errata was released on Jan 1st for the new shooting year. 
Based on the number of new products introduced to the market during the last year that produced several questions at matches, restrictions were lifted on the number and types of changes that are allowed on pistol slides in ESP and CDP divisions. No other changes, except the 2 noted format changes, have been made and the latest copy ( 2017.3) is on both the IDPA website or the IDPA.Tech web site.  We will not be mailing new rulebooks to the membership.
For clubs and safety officers, an updated version of Match Administration Guide was also released to address issues that arise from sanctioned matches. 
The latest copies may be downloaded from the IDPA and IDPA.Tech websites.

IDPA is excited to announce the dates and location of our 2018 US National Championship.

The 2018 event will be held September 13 - 15, 2018 at the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, AL.

NASCAR fans will recognize Talladega as the home of the Talladega Super Speedway . However, located two miles from the world - famous Talladega Superspeedway , Talladega is also home to the CMP’s 500 - acre facility . It features a 15 action pistol bays , a 600 - yard rifle range wi th targets at 200, 300 and 600 yards, a 100 - yard multi - purpose range and a 50 - yard pistol range. It also includes a trap field, 5 - stand field and a 15 - station sporting clays field – all with automated trap machines.

With this move in location we will also have a new Match Director. Chad Barber, recently retired from the Coast Guard, is a familiar name to those that have enjoyed the great IDPA matches at the S&W facility in Massachusetts as both a stage designer, CSO and MD for matches there. Well versed in building and running matches, we are expecting a great event f rom him and his team. Assisting him in the AMD role is Sam Henderson, MD of the challenging and exciting Masters match in AL and Nicky Carter, AC for Mississippi and a respected MD.

We are looking forward to seeing you there in September!

BERRYVILLE, Ark. – Wilson Combat’s Glenn Shelby returned to the winner’s circle when he captured the Custom Defensive Pistol division title at the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals this past weekend in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Shelby, who is the dominating force in his division, claimed the CDP title with his final time of 217.45 seconds while shooting just 39 points down. Overall, Shelby placed fourth among the 328 shooters competing in the annual championship.

“Glenn is a tremendous shooting talent and has been the leading CDP competitor in IDPA over the last few years. Winning the Smith & Wesson Indoor Nationals, yet again, shows that 2015 is likely going to be another great year for Glenn,” said Joyce Wilson, executive director of IDPA.

Second place in the division went to Smith & Wesson’s David Olhasso who finished sixth overall with 225.16 (65). Shelby’s Wilson Combat teammate Austin Proulx took first Master and finished 16th overall with 241.81 (72). Rounding out the top five were Team Colt’s Mark Redl who finished fourth in the division, 18th overall and claimed the High Senior title with 243.58 (71) while Chris Chamberlin placed fifth, and 20th overall, with 245.32 (70).

Elsewhere in the Custom Defensive Pistol division, Bob Biehl took first Expert with 268.23 (50), Andy Holton won first Sharpshooter with 335.97 (119) and Danielle Vermeulen claimed first Marksman with 398.74 (142).

Smith & Wesson has hosted the IDPA Indoor National Championship on the indoor ranges of their Shooting Sports Center for 18 years. One of the most popular matches on the IDPA competition calendar, the Indoor Nationals serves as the official start of the IDPA season.
