IDPA Welcomes Latest Club, New York’s Pathfinder Fish & Game

IDPA Welcomes Latest Club, New York’s Pathfinder Fish & Game BERRYVILLE, Ark. – The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA), the fastest growing shooting sport in the nation, has added a new club, Pathfinder Fish & Game located in Fulton, N.Y. Pathfinder Fish & Game is well known among Mid-Atlantic area competition shooters who have frequented the club to compete in the variety of shooting sports it hosts. Adding the very popular IDPA expands the club’s offerings to better support the local shooting community. “Pathfinder Fish & Game is excited to add another great recreational shooting activity for our members,” said Bob Russell, the club’s IDPA contact. “With the rapid growth of IDPA, coupled with the increase in the number of concealed carry permit holders, there is a real need for a defensive-style competitive shooting format for those looking to test their skills.” The club is training and certifying IDPA sanctioned safety officers to run matches which will be hosted every second Sunday of the month, April through November. In addition to monthly competition, plans are underway to add an introduction to IDPA seminar for the growing number of women who are now first time firearms owners.

Gun festival with picnic flavor

Gun festival with picnic flavor – Next to the vendor selling toy “bubble” guns, and across from the woman selling Mary Kay products, was a table filed with real knives. And a short walk from the field filled with inflatable rides, gun dealers set up tables filled with handguns and rifles. Barbecue sizzled, country music blared and fathers carried daughters on their shoulders as a wholesome scene played out Saturday at Hanofee Park.
