Welcome to McHenry IDPA!

Thank you for your interest in McHenry IDPA!

We run matches at On Target Range on the second and fourth Wednesdays every month. Pre-registration is required and walk-ins will be turned away without exception. We appreciate that there is strong demand for defensive pistol competition in our area and strive to support that interest; however due to capacity constraints, our matches fill up very quickly. There are not enough slots available to accommodate all interested shooters, and we are sorry if you are not able to register.

Prior experience in shoot on the move or action pistol competition, and/or formal training in drawing from a holster and shooting on the move is required to participate or become a member. We reserve the right to refuse participation if you cannot provide evidence of this, or if you are shooting in an unsafe manner. We are no longer holding New Shooter Orientation.

There are many classes that qualify for this requirement, including On Target’s Holster Drills class. A calendar of On Target classes can be found here.

General pre-registration will start at 8 PM the Sunday preceding each match.
Match announcements will be sent to our e-mail list and posted to this website 1-2 days before pre-registration starts. Each announcement will contain an unique link to Eventbrite that must be used to register for that match.

May 26, 2020 Match Cancelled

We are in an unprecedented time and with the State’s current guidelines we have no choice but to cancel both matches in May. There is a lot more that plays into this other than social distancing and our club, along with On-Target, need to ensure that we comply with State and local guidelines so as not to bring any unwanted attention to either of us which would jeopardize our futures.Even after we are able to resume shooting we may be faced with reduced shooters counts, procedures & protocols and simpler stages to reduce the amount of shared contact. We are all looking forward to getting back to the sport we love, but ask for your patience and cooperation as it will be some time before we get back to the way things ‘used to be’.

March 25, 2020 Match Registration

MATCH HAS BEEN CANCELLED

We regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel our match on Wednesday March 25th.

The safety of our shooters is always our number one priority. With the current global pandemic, the board felt that moving forward with the match puts everyone at an unnecessary risk.

Future events will be considered on a case-by-case basis so please make sure to check our Facebook page and website for more information.

Stay safe!
