People IDPA Announces Support of Donald Trump Industry News June 7, 2016 Join the Conversation The IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) has announced their support of presidential candidate Donald Trump. Here's how they explain it. IDPA Announces Support of Donald Trump The International Defensive Pistol Association is proud to announce their endorsement of Donald Trump for President of the United States. There has never been an election with more serious potential outcomes for firearms owners and shooters as the one we are facing in November, 2016. This is the first time that IDPA has officially endorsed a candidate for any elected office. We have never felt this strongly about the potential risks this upcoming election brings. While it's obvious that the second amendment to the Constitution is at risk, you must also understand that the whole Constitution will be at risk, as well. I encourage each and every member to get out and vote this year. Our freedoms and existence as we know it depend on each and every one of us. We have to stand together or we will fall apart. Joyce Wilson, Executive Director About the IDPA in their own words: The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real life encounters. It was founded in 1996 as a response to the desires of shooters worldwide. The organization now boasts membership of more than 25,000, including members in 70 foreign countries. One of the unique facets of this sport is that it is geared toward the new or average shooter, yet is fun, challenging and rewarding for the experienced shooter. The founders developed the sport so that practical gear and practical guns may be used competitively. An interested person can spend a minimal amount on equipment and still be competitive. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of the individual, not equipment or gamesmanship. “Competition only” equipment is not permitted in this sport. Visit www.IDPA.com.
