Quick division explanation: At MCRC, we allow all divisions and have a place for most common handguns. IDPA does not publish an approved handgun list, but they do publish guidelines and requirements for every division on their website. Handguns are divided by overall size, weight, barrel length and action type, along with other requirements. Shooters are to decide what division their handgun would fit in. Match Directors can assist if you need some direction.
