    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.

    Our matches are typically Saturday morning, 8 stages, setup/first shots/completion depends on time of year but will be communicated in the match sign-up form. There is no sport specific training/certification required, we require that new shooters identify themselves, and we set them up with a “buddy” for the first few matches.

    Registration must be completed online at Practiscore.com under (Alberta Tactical Handgun League) by the Thursday preceding the match date.

    Requests for information should be directed to info@myathl.com

    The Black Badge is a two day in-depth training course in the safe competitive shooting techniques required not only to compete at IPSC events but to deliver the confidence and expertise to use handguns in the safest possible manner.

    It is a mandatory course required to shoot IPSC matches in Canada. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Speed, and Power are balanced in a unique scoring system. It requires competitors to shoot fast and accurately, often shooting on the move and developing techniques and styles to shave off fractions of a second between shots, during reloads and drawing from the holster.

    Basic equipment requirements: Pistol (minimum 9mm caliber), 3 magazines, 2 magazine pouches and a holster which must cover the trigger when the gun is holstered, a belt to mount the equipment on and 500 rounds of ammunition.

    For further details and information, please contact Nick at nadraz@nucleus.com.

    Fees for this course are collected by the instructor. Cost of the course is $275. This covers first year membership to IPSC Alberta as well. $205 if you want to handle the IPSC Alberta payment yourself, or to postpone paying the membership for your own reasons.
