The 2017 Mississippi State IDPA Championship is in the books and everyone from the club finished the match and all had some lessons learned.

The results:

Kris Walley brought home a 2nd place finish in CDP MM.

Curtis Darrah came in 5th place in CDP MM.
Lorraine Adams came in 20th place in SSP MM.
Paul and Mary Erickson came in 11th and 13th place in ESP MM.

I’m sure there may have been a small side bet going on with the Erickson’s.

Everyone took home some really nice stuff from the prize table.


SLIDPA Members and Guests,

In response to the potentially nasty weather expected in the area, I've decided to cancel the match scheduled for this Sunday, October 8th.

Please stay safe and prepare accordingly!!

We at SLIDPA would like to congratulate NOLA Shooting Sports on their first successful IDPA match! They had three fun stages and a handful of shooters new to the sport. Kris and Steven were on hand to handle SO and Scorekeeping duties.

We encourage our members to head on out to the NOLATAC Training Facility on the NOLA Motorsports park grounds for their monthly matches. They currently shoot on the fourth Sunday of each month!

We look forward to seeing another club putting hits on paper in Louisiana!!!

If you are interested, NOLA Shooting Sports is hosting their first IDPA match Sunday morning beginning at 8:00. ...
