IDPA members and others interested in the scenarios and stage designs featured in this year’s match, as well as past matches, should visit the DOWN ZERO blog, the official blog of IDPA.

“With the tremendous popularity of the Smith & Wesson championship, we want all IDPA members to see the unique course design of this year’s Indoor Nationals. It’s our hope that these stages will fuel the creativity of IDPA clubs and match directors, and help them develop new and challenging courses of fire to benefit the thousands of IDPA members competing in weekly matches at the local level,” added Wilson.
