2020 IDPA National Championship
Here at IDPA Headquarters we are confident that the 2020 IDPA National Championship will be a great event. Recently we have had some inquiries regarding high capacity magazines to be used at the event in Grand Junction, Colorado. A few years ago, the state of Colorado passed a law that regulated the sale, possession and use of large capacity magazines (Colorado Revised Statute 18-12-302 and 303). Shooters who had obtained these magazines preceding this law were “grandfathered” in and were not held to that same standard.
Prior to the selection of Grand Junction as the Nationals site for 2020, we investigated this issue to ascertain if this would affect our shooters coming to join us at the National Championship. The information we received in the communication from Matt Lewis, Mesa County Sheriff, convinced us that Colorado was an appropriate choice.
If you have further concerns, you may wish to investigate this on your own by reading the statute; by contacting the range, Cameo Shooting and Educational Complex, to confirm their general practice; or by using reduced capacity magazines if that makes you more comfortable.
We look forward to shooting with you in September!
