Swiss International IDPA Championships

Since 2016, the Swiss IDPA shooters congregate for the annual match highlight, the Swiss National Championships. All classified IDPA members are welcome and we especially enjoy international guests joining the match. For 2022, we named the championship 'International' to reflect the many shooters from other nations participating. We are striving to provide a safe, fun and challenging set of stages that test the shooting skills of the competitors. We also highly value the camaraderie among the staff, the competitors and the spectators. 

Join up and become part of this great team!

Competing in IDPA in Italy

Despite big efforts, it is currently not possible to assure a suitable infrastructure for large matches in Switzerland. However, our dear friends from 360 Defence in Italy have agreed to host our large matches on their magnificent range. In this way, we have a wonderful location with world-class infrastructure available! Many thanks for this great gesture!
Please note that the caliber 9x19 is not allowed for civilians in Italy. There are efforts made to change this, but at the moment this is still the case. However, it should not prevent anybody from participating, since there are several solutions available to the shooters:

1) Start in CDP (45 ACP) or REV (e.g. 38 Spl or 45 ACP)

2) Get a 9x21 barrel for your pistol. Available for Glock, Walther and others

3) Compete using any other IDPA legal caliber, e.g. 40S&W in SSP, ESP, CCP

Shooting IDPA in Italy

European shooters need a valid European Firearms Passport and an invitation to the event. You can legally bring a maximum of 200 rounds with you.
Shooters from non-European countries please take contact for further instructions.
