Former Batavia PD lieutenant Eugene Jankwoski sent over this video from his participation in May in the 2013 New York State International Defensive Pistol Championship. Jankowski won the stock service pistol division, high law enforcement, high senior and overall match. The event was held at Pine City Sportsmen’s Club, near Pine City, and involved 104 competitors.
Jankowski's explanation of the event:
One hundred and four competitors shot 12 challenging stages of fire over three days. Jankowski is sponsored by Metal Spinning Targets, CMC Triggers, Wolf Gun Springs and Tactical Command Industries. IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full-charge service ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual. Competitors are required to wear a cover garment to simulate concealed carry and Stock Service Pistol firearms must conform closely to factory specifications.
