The best 600 sport shooters from all over the world will compete in the championship.

Canik Academy Director İsmail Dut and Canik Team Captain Nils Jonasson will also take part in the championship, which is considered the biggest sportive shooting competition in Europe.


The International Defensive Pistol Association, founded in 1996, is an organization based in Bogata, Texas, that has created a shooting sport based on defensive pistol techniques, using equipment including full-charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in defensive pistol events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are deemed suitable for self-defense use and concealment garment that can conceal the handgun from view of bystanders.
