Smith & Wesson, the 160-year-old American firearms maker and host of the 2013 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship, and the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) announced that online registration for the 2013 Indoor Nationals will take place on Saturday, December 8, 2012.
Celebrating its 16th year of defensive pistol shooting excellence, the 2013 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship will take place February 21-23 on the indoor ranges of the Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Due to the incredible popularity of the Indoor Nationals, which draws more than 300 of IDPA’s top competitors and routinely sells out in a matter of minutes, organizers have outlined the priority points system being used for this year’s registration process.
IDPA members that have competed in the championship in one or more of the last four years will receive one (1) priority point for each year they participated in the match. Competitors can check their priority points ranking on the match registration site. Online registration will begin at 8:00am EST Saturday morning, December 8 and proceed as follows:
- 8:00 AM – Registration opens for shooters with four (4) priority points
- 10:00 AM – Registration opens for shooters with three (3) priority points
- 12:00 PM – Registration opens for shooters with two (2) priority points
- 2:00 PM – Registration opens for shooters with one (1) priority point
- 4:00 PM – General registration opens for all remaining shooters
General registration for all IDPA members will follow the priority point registration and will start at 4:00pm EST on December 8. Any remaining slots still available at that time will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis.
An outline of the complete match registration process has been emailed to past competitors but is also posted on IDPA’s Down Zero blog. All IDPA shooters interested in entering the 2013 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship are encouraged to carefully review and familiarize themselves with the procedure prior to the start of online registration on December 8, 2012.
