Short-Range Course of Fire

The Short Range Match uses IDPA-style scoring and follows IDPA safety principles; however, generally no target will be greater than 10 yards away from the shooter. Most stages are based upon a real-life event that was recorded on video and adapted for a square range. Otherwise, it is a regular course of fire, with some stages requiring a reload. When I send out the match results I include a link to the video of the events from that match. The idea is for the shooter to solve the problem and then view the video of the actual event to understand how it happened in real-life.

The short-range course of fire match seeks to replicate real life scenarios where you are more likely to use carry-suitable handguns. The match's guiding principle is to improve concealed carry skills. Ideally, shooters will use a pistol they carry to shoot the match. All pistols may be loaded to magazine capacity; however, the match may have some reloads on the clock or some malfunction drills.

Shooters may use any belt holster and magazine carrier/speed loader carrier suitable for carrying the pistol concealed. Shooters may reload from the pocket; however, no drawing a pistol from the pocket, a fanny pack, shoulder holster, etc. If in doubt, please ask

If you do not have a belt holster for your carry pistol (?), please bring it in a case. Shooters w/o holsters will begin from the low ready and will have 2.00 seconds added to their time for each string begun from the low ready.

Sign up is between 0900 - 0945hrs. Please make every effort to be on time for signup and don't wait until the last minute. Safety officers are always welcome!

Set Up: Set up assistance sincerely appreciated. Please arrive at 7:50 a.m.
