GICS as fortunate to be present at and sponsor prizes at the first ever South African IDPA DMG Nationals held at False Bay Sports Shooting Club (FBSSC) from 21 - 24 November 2013.
If you are not familiar with it, International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) Shooting is the use of practical, every day carry equipment to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios using practical handguns that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, measuring a balance between speed and accuracy while promoting safe and responsible firearm handling and ownership.
IDPA membership and matches are open to all people who can legally own a handgun, regardless of occupation, race, gender or religion. IDPA members come from all walks of life and represent all skill levels within the shooting sports.
IDPA is the fastest growing shooting sport in South Africa and is governed locally by SADPA. (South African Defensive Pistol Association.)
Defensive Multi-Gun (DMG) is an offshoot of IDPA Shooting that incorporates the use of handguns, shotguns and rifles within the framework and ethos of IDPA. While DMG is still very much in it's infancy, it has and continues to grow in popularity in South Africa and already has a large following.
Competitors from around the country competed in various classes and divisions over 4 days. Overall, the event was a great success, setting the stage for future DMG National competitions.
As one of the event sponsors, GICS sponsored the following prizes:
1 x Bushnell AR Optics TRS-25 Red Dot Sight with High Mount
3 x Bushnell Opinel Folding Knives
1 x Peltor SportTac Electronic Hearing Protectors
1 x ATI Tan Shotgun Foreend
