Welcome to the Minnetonka Game and Fish Club IDPA League
Minnetonka Game and Fish Club is an IDPA-affiliated club located in St. Francis, MN. Everyone is welcome provided they put safety first and respect the range and club rules.
We do NOT have a local club membership requirement.
IDPA matches are held approximately once per month. Check the calendar for upcoming matches. Activities start at 9:00. Cost for one gun is $15. An additional gun is $5. BUG side matches don't count as an additional gun and as such are free if you also shoot in the main event.Course scenarios are designed to simulate potentially life-threatening encounters or to test skills that would be required to survive such an encounter. Bug stages will usually be available as a side match, so review the IDPA BUG rules and bring along your little gun. More info on our BUG matches is here.
This is an excellent way to practice tactical shooting skills, learn from and with others, and have fun with a great group of people with the same goals. New and novice shooters are welcome! We regularly have shooters from all skill levels from beginning shooters to Master class shooters. Law enforcement officers are especially encouraged to attend.
If you are new to IDPA at Minnetonka Game and Fish Club, please review the New Shooter information.
If you're looking for even more IDPA action check out our friends at Twin Cities Action Shooting. They are a great group of people hosting their matches at Beaverbrook in East Bethel.
IDPA rules state that a contestant may only shoot one IDPA match as a non-IDPA member. Competitors wishing to shoot additional matches must become IDPA members. Also, only members may shoot a classifier match. We will be checking IDPA cards at all matches.
Note that IDPA events at Minnetonka Game and Fish Club are run with a COLD range. No loaded firearms are permitted except under the direct supervision of a Safety Officer. If, when you arrive, you are carrying a loaded firearm you must immediately seek a Safety Officer who will supervise the unloading of your carry firearm in a safe location and manner. This must be done before engaging in any IDPA related activity such as setup or registration.
Additionally, the only place that a firearm may be handled is under the direct supervision of a safety officer or at the Safety Table (no ammo or mags handled here, other than the sole exception that people using a firearm with a "mag disconnect" may handle an EMPTY mag for purposes of dropping the hammer while at the safety table).In case of bad weather......
The basic policy is that we do not cancel matches in advance due to predicted bad weather. We all know how accurate weather forecasts are. If someone shows up and wants to shoot a match, we'll shoot a match, whether it's raining or we just had a foot of snow. That's what we did in our first two matches of 2011 and our last match of 2010. The exception is that if there is dangerous weather in the area, we may choose to head for cover rather than shoot a match. Also, we may change the course of fire based on weather conditions. For example, it is difficult to perform well in a Classifier if the targets have baggies on them, so we may choose to shoot a scenario match rather than a classifier and postpone the Classifier to next month (although if someone shows up and has their heart set on doing a classifier, we'll do our best to accommodate them).
