Windham Indoor Shooting Range & Retail Store has just signed up to become an IDPA Club.

IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated real world self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.



The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real life encounters. It was founded in 1996 as a response to the desires of shooters worldwide. The organization now boasts membership of more than 25,000, including members in 70 foreign countries.

IDPA offers an exciting forum for practical shooters in which truly practical equipment, techniques and courses of fire are mandated. Prior to IDPA, there was no place to compete with common service pistols. There were no shooting sports where your concealed carry holster could also be your match holster without handicap. When you come to an IDPA match, you can not only use your duty/CCW equipment, you can be completely competitive with it! Other shooting sports have become equipment races; IDPA will not.

If you’re interested in using truly practical pistols to solve challenging and exciting defensive shooting problems, then IDPA is the sport for you.

Learn more about what makes IDPA great, from the practical skills training rules, the variety of matches, the wide range of competitors and the ever growing community.

Windham Indoor Shooting Range is pleased to be offering IDPA matches starting in Dec 2019 and running through 2020.  For new shooters looking to become an IDPA member and participate in the matches there is an Introduction to IPDA Shooting Class to take.  It covers what you need to know about IPDA Shooting and drawing safely from a concealment holster.  The cost of this course is $65 and does include your one year membership into the IPDA.
