Muzzle Above The Berms!
Blue Ridge Cherry Valley Rod & Gun Club has neighbors which should not be a surprise to many of you. And BRCV’s Board of Governors, Elected Officials, and the IDPA Staff have gone to great lengths to keep our neighbors safe and to have a continued good relationship with them. One of the incidents that can ruin our good relationships is an errant round leaving BRCV property. For that reason the rule regarding keeping the muzzles of the firearms below the top of the berms is strictly enforced. This has caused some concern among the proponents of the Modern Reloading Technique used in competition pistol shooting. BRCV Berms are high enough to permit a competitive shooter to perform their reloads without any impact to their performance. The 4 Rules of Gun Safety specifically state that you should be sure of your target and what is behind it. If the muzzle is pointed over the berm and the gun fires then you are not sure of your target nor what is behind it. So any shooter who points the muzzle of their firearm over the berm during a match will receive a Disqualification for the match.

    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.
