If you are so inclined, the rule book is available online at IDPA.com. The local club is on Facebook. Down zero IDPA. But gear is fairly simple. Semi auto 9mm or higher, three mags, holster, mag pouches and a cover garment. Stage round count is max of 18 plus any extras rounds that you choose to shoot. You can sign up on Practiscore.Lol well, all of that information has been mixed as far as the gear. I have a few different belts and set ups.
