IDPA - Similar to USPSA events but requires conformance to what would be used in a concealed carry/defensive mode. Cover must be used and scenarios more closely approximate what might be expected in a self-defense situation. Accuracy is also more heavily emphasized.

The CPS IDPA events and practices at COSSA generally use bays #2 through #6 at our facility. We have access to other pistol bays as well as several rifle bays with ranges from 100 to 1000 yards as needed. Our primary bays have weather shelters with wood stoves for shade in the summer and protection from the elements in the winter. During the winter months, the stoves are a most welcome addition. We have two shoot houses, in bay #4 and bay #6, which are used to provide a bit of realism to many of our self-defense type field courses.
