The Defensive Practical Rifle Match is a shooting sport that uses practical rifles/carbines and equipment suitable for real world use, including full charge service ammunition, to solve simulated real world self-defense scenarios.   While primarily a rifle/carbine event, pistols also sometimes used in a stage with them.  Gun transitions are designed to be within the competitor’s individual capabilities. 

Slings are required before and after a stage; may be removed during a stage.  Empty chamber flags required.  Other safety and operational rules in effect, per the Rules at the bottom of this page.

Stages are limited to not more than 24 rounds.  Typical match is 5 stages.  Scoring is shooter’s time, plus target points down, plus penalties.  Distances do not exceed 75 yards, with average around 25 yards.  Some required shots will require precision.  Others are fired on the move or weak shoulder.  Rifle targets are IDPA cardboard.  Pistol targets may be cardboard or reactive steel.
