What Is IDPA?
IDPA is a time-based real world competition that challenges shooters’ skill and composure. This target style is composed of 3 scoring zones: -0, -1, and -3. Simply put, each number corresponds to points down which are measured in ½ second increments: -0 adds nothing to your time, -1 adds ½ second, and -3 adds 1½ seconds. Competitors are timed from the sound of the buzzer until their last shot is fired (raw time), with any rounds hitting -1 or -3 being added to the raw time. There are various other rules regarding hitting non-threats, failure to neutralize threats, and procedural penalties which affect the final score. For the purposes of the everyday enthusiast, however, the goal when practising on this steel target is to aim for -0 zones: centre-mass and head shots.
