Similar to an IDPA match but firearm used is a shotgun. Stages include steel and clay targets. One stage is usually a “Walk and Stalk" stage where targets are engaged from shooting boxes with no preview of the stage (blind). Most stages will have about 12 targets and the "Walk and Stalk" up to 25. Reloads are on the clock and minimum 5 round capacity shotgun but no maximum limit on capacity. Hunting and home defense shotguns are welcome. Please remove plugs from hunting shotguns to allow 5 shells (4+1) to be loaded. See below in the More Info section for additional match information.
A typical practical shotgun stage. Poppers hiding behind barrels requiring different shooting locations to engage all the targets.
