Distance of IDPA targets

At what distance from the shooter are most IDPA targets set at? If they vary, what's the range?
Thank you for any info!

From IDPA rulebook

· 75% of all shots required in a match must be 15 yards or less; however, occasional targets out to 35 yards are to be encouraged.

· No ‘strong hand only’ strings of fire may require the shooter to engage targets more than 10 yards distant.

· No ‘weak hand only’ strings of fire may require the shooter to engage targets more than 7 yards distant.

· No head box shots are to be required more than 10 yards distant.


3. Most shots should be held to 5 – 15 yards.

Depends on the local club who puts on the match. Our club does anywhere from point blank to 40 yards, and usually keep the round count to around 18-24 per stage. There is the odd 15 yard strong only, and sometimes some mandatory 12-15 yard head shots. Go to enough IDPA matches, and you'll see....
The rule book 'rules' really only apply at the State, Regional and National level.
