International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA)

IDPA  
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 20 000, including members in 50 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.

In South Africa IDPA is shot under the auspices of SADPA – South African Defensive Pistol Association. Kraaifontein Sports Shooting club is proud to be one of the accredited SAPSA clubs in the Western Cape thus offering its members the opportunity to participate in this discipline and obtain the their Dedicated Sports Shooter Status as per the National Firearm legislation.

Steel Challenge

Steel Challenge is a shooting sport that tests both accuracy and speed.
The targets, made of steel, range in size from 10" round plates to 18"x24" square plates.

Competitors are scored based solely on the time it takes them to shoot each stage. The last target that is shot is known as the "stop plate", which stops the timer. Each competitor shoots each stage five times, with their slowest run dropped, excluding the stage Outer Limits where only four runs are shot and the top three counted. The competitor's best four out of five runs are totaled for their stage score and the eight stage scores are added together to establish the competitor's match score. The winner is the competitor with the lowest overall time.

Novices are welcome and the new shooter will find that Steel challenge is an excellent way of easing their way into competitive shooting. The experienced competitive shooter will find that Steel Challenge is an ideal way to improve their shooting skills.

Cowboy Action Shooting

Cowboy Shooting
Cowboy Action Shooting is one of the fastest growing Gun Sports in the World. It is and always will remain an amateur shooting sport. It was created to be a fun family shoot, for men, woman and children and it is as much a social event as it is a shoot. Today, the sport is dominated by youngsters. The fastest Cowboy handgun shooter is 13 years of age and shoots 10 rounds out of 2 Single Action Revolvers in under 3 seconds.

Cowboy Action Shooting was started in South Africa in 2004 and accredited with the SAPS in 2010. The first club was in the Southern Suburbs in Cape Town. Subsequently, clubs have opened up all across the country. It has been long overdue to start one in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. The Northern Territory Rangers (NTR) club was started in April 2017 and we believe that it will become the biggest Cowboy club in the Western Cape.
