International Defensive Pistol Association MatchesPPGC has partnered with Front Range IDPA to bring International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) matches to Colorado Springs. The matches will start Sunday, July 21st, 2013 and be held every 3rd Sunday of the month thereafter. IDPA is an exciting pistol competition and an excellent way to test your defensive pistol skills. IDPA promises to be a challenge to all shooters -- beginners and experts alike. With modest equipment requirements and manageable round-counts, IDPA is an excellent way to get started in pistol competition. More information about IDPA can be found here and the FRIDPA web-page is here.
A “TRAINING DAY” for Trail Plate .22 Matches:
If you have not tried this sport, you are missing the chance to improve your overall experience with your .22 rifle or pistol. The Training Day is for new and experienced Trail Plate shooters. You will be able to zero your rifle on paper and than try your luck with four inch steel plates. During the rifle training, you will have 90 seconds to remove 10, 4 inch plates from the rail. You will shoot 40 rounds, 20 in the standing position and 20 in the prone position. The standing distance is 50 yards and the prone position is 100 yards. This is a training day for this sport.
All are welcome, young and old. If you don’t have a .22 rifle, come out and try some that will be available for you to try.

The format will be similar to last year, with each participant shooting unique stages.
All Steel Challenge divisions are available, including Rimfire. And Juniors are welcome!
This year because of growth the match will consist of 4 or 5 stages run simultaneously. Therefore, you should be prepared to shoot close to 200 rounds for most matches.
2013 Dates TBA.
On the second Friday of every month, we will be conducting our PPGC-exclusive CCW Steel matches. CCW Steel provides an opportunity for shooters to use their concealment handguns and clothing in a Steel Challenge-like environment. The CCW Steel stages are more difficult than the typical Steel Challenge stages, incorporating such elements as movement, obstacles, and no-shoot targets. Our first CCW Steel match for 2013 TBA. For more details, go here.
As we get into late summer and autumn, we will shift our cutoff times to accommodate the earlier setting sun.
All Steel Challenge divisions are available as per the official website guidelines at
The fee to shoot is still $10 for adults and $5 for minors. Any one helping setup before 4 PM will shoot the match for $5.
Checkin and payments will be taken on the range.
