IDPA is back at TCSA

It’s official! Tioga County Sportmen's is now an IDPA affiliated club!

The International Defensive Pistol Association, founded in 1996, has created a shooting sport based on defensive pistol techniques, using equipment including full-charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in IDPA events are required to use handguns and holsters that are deemed suitable for self-defense use as well as a concealment garment that conceals the handgun from the view of bystanders.

TCSA was the first IDPA Club in New York State back in 1997. We are glad to announce that we are bringing it back!



The IDPA schedule for the remainder of this year will be limited due to the rapidly approaching change of seasons. We hope to offer a full schedule next year including some weekday events.


PLEASE NOTE: IDPA will NOT affect the current Action Pistol program. This will be an additional opportunity for you to get more range time! Watch the calendar for upcoming events!
