One of the perceived drawbacks of IDPA as a sport is the
complexity of it’s rules. Go on any IDPA forum or FB group and you
will find long discussions of the minutia of the rules and it
doesn’t help that there have been three rulebooks in a span of
something like five years. The last rulebook, the 2017 version, was
originally supposed to be unaltered for five years. But it wasn’t a
month before revisions were made and the five year plan went
completely out the window.
Despite this complexity and occasional confusion, the sport is
a ton of fun. For the average shooter it’s really
straighforward. Just don’t get lost in the weeds and you’ll be
fine. My goal in the next few episodes is to make the rules
simple and easy to understand for the new shooter.
Today we will be taking a look at scoring and penalties.
