You don’t have to be a member of the Tennessee Sports Foundation to shoot with us.  Cost to shoot is FREE the first time, and then $5 if you are a Tennessee Sports Foundation member, and $10 if you’re not a Tennessee Sports Foundation member. Spectators are always free.

Randy Wallace and Parrish Turner serve as the range safety officers.

The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) was organized in order to provide those persons interested in carrying a firearm for self-defense with a platform to practice the skills that are necessary in the average defensive encounter.  It is different from most of the other pistol associations in that it limits the participants’ gear to that which is common to daily carry.

To participate in an IDPA match, bring:
• Eye and ear protection
• Revolver or Pistol (9mm/.38 Special or larger)
• 100 rounds of ammunition (we usually shoot around 50)
• Extra magazines or speed-loaders (not mandatory)
• Holster
• Open mind

The IDPA rules are used for IDPA shoots. To visit the IDPA site rules page, click here.  But don’t worry.  You don’t have to know the rules to shoot.  You can learn as you shoot.  And we are an easy going group, that will make it easy to learn and fun to shoot.  Come on out and join us!  Shoot with us, or just watch the fun.  Spectators are always welcome.  But if you come just to watch, make sure you bring ear protection.
