COMO, Miss. - The DeSoto Rifle and Pistol Club in Como, will host 70 of the top shooters from Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, and Texas this July 26th, for a premier 2014 Mississippi IDPA match.

“As only one of two IDPA clubs in the state of Mississippi, we are working hard to bring IDPA back to the minds of people in and around our area” said Will Schmied, President of the DeSoto Rifle and Pistol Club. “Future plans include Tier 2 sanctioned matches.”

IDPA competition is the most practical of the shooting sports. During competition a shooter can expect to face several stages, or courses of fire, each designed around a potential real world scenario featuring a variety of targets and obstacles, which he or she must navigate in the shortest period of time with the highest degree of accuracy.

The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the international governing body for the sport of Defensive Shooting. With 350 affiliated clubs and over 23,000 members, IDPA is the largest competitive pistol organization in the U.S. providing competitive shooting opportunities for shooters of all ages and skill levels.
