IDPA  #c0170




Matches are open to the public, you do not have to be a GMSA member to participate!
IDPA membership is not required to participate in our monthly matches but is required to shoot in classifiers, regional and state level events.


If you are new to pistol shooting, and not sure if you're ready for IDPA, you might want to consider shooting in a few of our Tactical Pistol matches for starters.  Many IDPA shooters participate in our Tactical Pistol matches just for practice.


GMSA joined IDPA in May 1999 and was one of the first IDPA clubs in Georgia, we were number 170 in the nation.

Mr. Jeff McDonald was our first match director (1998-1999) and was the recipient of our original IDPA pistol box, shown in the pictures below.  Although it looks home made, our Official IDPA Pistol Box was issued by IDPA back in 1999.
