Dixie Wheelgunners

Dixie Wheelgunners is a NCRR program to introduce shooters to an  IDPA style of shooting competition. While the program will be tailored to shooters that are new to this style of shooting, experienced IDPA shooters are also welcome to participate in our matches.

We will be using IDPA rules (safety, shooting, scoring, penalty, and equipment) with some flexibility allowed for the new shooter.

There will normally be four stages in our course of fire (COF) similar in design to what the NCRR IDPA Friday night matches have, but overall less complex in design so new competition shooters can learn how to shoot the stages.

While simpler in design, experienced competitors will still find the stages challenging. The stages are timed, but new shooters can choose not to be timed until they’re comfortable with competitive shooting. We will also offer some coaching for the new shooters on how to shoot the stages.

If you’re thinking of giving IDPA a try, Dixie Wheelgunners is the place to start out.


  1. BE SAFE

Fees are $10 for non-NCRR members, $5 for NCRR members and $5 for reshoots.

Course of fire setup is at 3:00 p.m.  The match starts at 4:00 p.m. running till 9:00 p.m.  Last sign up is at 8:00 p.m.

Equipment needed:

1. Firearm of your choice (revolver, semi-auto pistol, or pistol caliber carbine aka PCC) in 38 spl, .380, 9mm, .40 or 45acp caliber.
2. Holster: No small of back, cross-draw, appendix, or shoulder holsters allowed.
3. Three magazines and two magazine holders.
4. Cover garment (ie. shooting vest, long-tailed shirt, jacket, something that covers your gun, holster, and mag pouches when your arms are held horizontal to the ground).
5. Ammo: At least 50 rounds of ammo. No jacketed hollow-point, steel core, or Wolf brand ammunition allowed.

If you don’t have everything listed, we will try to loan you something for the match.

If you don’t have any of the above caliber firearms, you may start with a .22 at “low ready” for the first couple of matches.

At this time we are going to limit our matches to a max of 50 rounds of ammo needed. Bring two 50 round boxes in case make up shots are taken or a stage requires a reshoot. All magazines are to be downloaded to six rounds to make the competition somewhat equal with revolvers.
