See below for the current match announcement and registration link. Once you register you will receive approval to squad based on the following priority order: Staff and Safety Officers, FXRGC Members, IDPA Members, and then everyone else. All IDPA matches are open to the public.

For all shooters, please review the IDPA rule book. We've composed a rules summary of the stuff all shooters need to know. You can find it here: FXRGC IDPA Rules Summary.pdf

 July IPDA Match 

Due to the forecast high heat levels for Saturday, we are regretfully cancelling Saturday's IDPA match. This was a difficult decision to make because we all love this sport, and a lot of effort goes into planning and organizing each match. 

But the temperature and heat index expected for Saturday is just too much of a risk to put our shooters, guests, and safety officers through. We hope you understand. 

Next match will be August 17

Next Classifier will be August 24

For the new shooter class, we will let you know when we reschedule it. (Most likely August 24 but we need to confirm staff for that date first.)

IDPA New Shooter Class July 20, 2019 CANCELLED

Sponsored by the FXRGC Education Committee

UPDATE 6/27/19: The class is currently full. The registration form below is now closed. If we have cancellations we will reopen the form.

The IDPA Match Staff at Fairfax Rod and Gun Club will be hosting a new IDPA shooter class on July 20, 2019. 

This class is intended for and geared towards the first time IDPA/action pistol shooter. You will learn, under direct supervision of experienced IDPA Safety Officers, how to draw from a holster, engage targets, and reholster a firearm. You will be instructed in the basic rules of IDPA including safety, stage execution, and range etiquette. 

This will be an all-day class. First part of the day will be spent on the Porasky range learning in a discussion, demonsation, and live fire class. The second part of the day will be spent shooting the July IDPA match at the Club. All students will be in the same squad for the afternoon match. 

Required gear include eye and ear protection, a safe firearm suitable for IDPA competition, a strong side hip holster that covers the trigger guard, three magazines, two magazine carriers, and a concealment garment. You will also need approximately 200 rounds of ammunition – 100 for the class, 100 for the match. 

Cost for the class is $20 which covers your match fee. Class starts at 9:00 am with check-in at the Culver range at 8:00 am.
