GADPA is an Atlanta based, not-for-profit sport shooting club that was incorporated in 2012, but whose roots can be traced back to the spring of 2005 when GADPA was originally formed as a single member, limited liability company (a/k/a Greater Atlanta Shooting Club, Inc.) to sponsor IDPA matches in the greater Atlanta area. Since its formation the club has enjoyed tremendous growth and support from the local shooting community. As a consequence of this growth, and to manage its operations more effectively, GADPA (not-for-profit) was formed in 2012 to acquire the assets and continue the operations of the club. With the continuing support of its members, GADPA’s management believes the club is now positioned for even greater success in the coming years.
