The Rio Salado Defensive Pistol match is an IDPA match. IDPA matches offer a place to compete with equipment suitable for defensive use, with limits on round count and course designs that ensure a straightforward test of shooting skills. Simple but not easy, IDPA matches are a great place to get started in action pistol competition. There is a division for most every pistol and all you’ll need in the addition to your pistol is a strong side belt holster plus a few* loading devices (magazines or speed loaders or moon clips) and ammunition carriers (mag pouches or speed loader/moon clip holders) plus a cover garment. The IDPA website has more information, including a downloadable rule book here. If this will be your first practical pistol match (or you never bothered to get classified in IDPA, USPSA, ICORE, or TNS) be sure that you have completed the Rio Salado Practical Shooting Starter Course before you sign up for the match. Information on the PSSC is here.

*”a few”=
Full size guns with 8 or 10 rounds in the magazine: Three magazines and two mag holders.
Compact guns with 6 or 7 rounds in the magazine: Four magazines and three mag holders.
Revolvers (6 shot maximum): Four speed loaders/moon clips and three holders.
