IPA Pistol - 5th Anniversary

Club Profile

The National Executive Committee of IPA (Ireland Section) has endorsed the Pistol Club as a National IPA Club within this Section. It was formally launched as the International Police Association Pistol Club Ireland at the National Council meeting on the 4th June 2008.  The aims of the Pistol Club are to provide organised events for members of the IPA (Ireland Section) who are pistol and revolver enthusiasts and to promote and encourage interaction with like minded enthusiasts from other IPA sections around the world.

Since its inception some of our Pistol Club members have travelled to a number of Shooting Ranges where they had very enjoyable, educational and informative days of shooting.
