The Ukiah Gun Club is affiliated with the International
Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA). Matches are generally held the third
Saturday of each month at the Helldorado pistol range with a mandatory briefing at 0830, and then at 0900
the competition begins.
Defensive Pistol shooting as a sport is simply the use of practical
equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real
world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in Defensive Pistol
events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are truly
suitable for self-defense use. No "competition only" equipment is permitted
in Defensive Pistol matches since the main goal is to test the skill and
ability of the individual, not their equipment or gamesmanship. RELOAD.
