First, we look forward to a great day on the range with you and we want you to understand the process we use to sign up and
prepare for a match. Please read through this page and follow the instructions for a smooth and successful sign up for a match.
Metacon Gun Club, a private club, has strict range time constraints for an IDPA match and we want to provide each shooter
with a safe, unhurried and enjoyable Metacon IDPA match. The only way to accomplish this is to limit the number of competitors
for each match. If you are not "approved" into a match, this is not because don't want you to shoot with us but instead we already
have as many shooters as we can handle.
Here is the process to sign up for a Metacon IDPA match:
We use Practiscore for our match registration and to post match results.
You can find our PractiScore sign up at this link:
You will get an email from email@example.com that states, "Thank-You for registering for the Metacon IDPA monthly match.
You will receive another email once your registration has been approved." At this point you are not actually in the match since
you are not approved.
- On the menu at the top of the page, click "Matches."
- In the search box type, "Metacon IDPA".
- Click into the Match Title
- Fill out the form
If you receive another email from firstname.lastname@example.org that states, "Your registration has been received
and approved." then you are in the match. Approval is the key.
If you have not shot a Metacon IDPA match before then send an email to email@example.com
to set up a phone conversation with John Freda, the IDPA Match Director at Metacon to discuss the Metacon specific/unique safety constraints.
Our goal is not to DQ you for a mistake because you were not informed about specific safety requirements that result from our range set up.
It is highly recommended that you get on our email list. We use the email list to
contact shooters with any last minute match changes and to contact specific shooters if needed. We do not share our list with any
commercial entities. Include the information noted below when you request to be put on our contact list:
- Full Name
- E-Mail Address
- If you are a member of Metacon Gun club
- If you are an IDPA member, include your IDPA number and classification
- If you are a IPSC/USPSA member, include your number and classification
If you are not an IDPA or IPSC/USPSA member also include:
- Any action shooting experience you may have ie. falling plates, pins, etc
- Your experience and comfort level with drawing from a holster
Send all the requested information to
Fulfilling these requirements will get you on our email list.
For new and Non-IDPA members, we request that you refer to the "Shooters Area" to the left and download and read the
"IDPA Rulebook" We do not expect you to know these 100% but a familiarization of the IDPA rules will help you
successfully and safely navigate your first couple of IDPA matches with us.
Remember, our goal is that:
"Metacon IDPA matches remain a safe, welcoming and challenging experience enjoyed by both new and experienced shooters alike"
This can only happen if we limit the total match attendance and all shooters who do attend these matches help the staff make
each match safe and satisfying for all shooters present.
Thank-You for your understanding!
