Area Coordinator Update
IDPA Headquarters is pleased to welcome three new Area Coordinators to our ranks. John Reihner is now assigned to Western Pennsylvania and West Virgina. Brian Ehrler will replace Iron Mike Webb as the AC for the state of Texas, and Rick Lund will replace Lance Biddle in Florida. Mike and Lance are two of our longest tenured ACs and they will assist Brian and Rick through a transition period beginning Jan. 1st. Thanks to Mike and Lance for their hard work and continued support of IDPA. Please welcome John, Brian and Rick to their new positions.
The IDPA Range Bag
As you may have heard, IDPA changed the name of the Pro Shop. The new name, The Range Bag, better reflects our commitment to add products that our members need for their own range bags. We have added new items for this year and will be adding more in the first quarter of 2015.
With Christmas just around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about what to get that IDPA competitor in your life or just something as a present for yourself. Check out the new products at
Some of the new logo products include:
  • compact umbrella
  • large umbrella
  • license plate frame
  • towel that clips to your range bag, and
  • great magnetic lanyard pen just right for SOs and anyone else
We are also happy to announce that we are carrying a selection of Comp-Tac holsters. At the moment we are only carrying holsters to fit some of the most common models, but we intend to add other models and other holster companies in the near future.
For those hunters out there, remember that we have camouflaged and hunter orange IDPA logo hats as well.
