A caution to those of you using some GPS locators.  A search for OCR&GC MAY send you to downtown Coweta.  That's about 4.5 mi south of the match location.  Use directions provided below unless you just want to see Main Street.

IDPA meets on the 1st & 4th Saturday of each month. Sign-in begins about 9:30,  Safety Meeting/Walk-Thru promptly at 10:00.   Match runs til 1 PM (-1 hr/+ 1/2 hr) with tear-down concluding about 2 PM.
Match fee is $15/ $10 OCR&GC members.  Match is open both to Oil Capital members as well as other individuals wishing to shoot IDPA matches.  Junior aged competitors (12-17) may compete. Most matches are +/- 100 required rounds . We suggest bringing 150 rounds.  Spectators are welcome; they must wear eye and ear protection when in the vicinity of the ranges.  All persons operating vehicles within club grounds are expected to obey posted speed limits of 15 MPH on general clubsite roads with 5 MPH maximum in the event use areas.  If you are followed by a dust roostertail its your clue to slow down, regardless of your speed.
 
You will need 3 magazines for your pistol (9mm) or larger caliber. A strong side holster, meeting Rulebook spec's,  is an IDPA requirement HOWEVER do not purchase just any holster until after your first match.  I encourage those without holster experience to start each stage with gun in hand. 
 
IDPA matches at Oil Capital are conducted under "cold" range rules.  All firearms worn by the competitors  at the match are fully unloaded (mag removed) and chamber empty.   LEAVE the unloaded firearm holstered until directed to load up on the bay by a Safety Officer .  The magazine well of semi-auto's will be vacant.  Holstering up ONLY of the unloaded match firearm at the vehicle  is permitted; no practice draws or other handling at the vehicle.  Other unloaded firearms handling is permitted ONLY at the Safety Handling Area tables,  located at marked locations on the bays.   A Safety Handling Area sign is at page bottom; follow its instruction closely. 
 

Our 2nd gun program is working fine; here it is again.

 

  1. The 2nd handgun must be one that will properly fit in the SAME holster and use the SAME mag carriers as the 1st gun. 
  2. Gun swap out will be at the start box directly under the commands of the PSO.  Shooter will bring the gun to the line in a case or gun bag. There will be NO gun swaps at the safety table.  Gun left in the holster then swapped is a DQ for unsafe gun handling.
  3. PCC could be shot as the 2nd gun.   Users have found the easy way to get the PCC mag pouch into play is to put it a tad behind the 1st division mag carriers and leave that pouch in place.  The gun competed with in the first division can also be shot in a 2nd division for which it qualifies under the mag cap rules of that division.  Also possible could be a standard division gun followed by a Carry Optics (CO) gun.  That would work if the standard division gun will meet safety spec’s in the CO holster that would have to be worn for both guns.
  4. For match reporting purposes, the 2nd gun will be denoted by having the initials (ex. SSP) between your first and last name on the results.  PCC and CO reported in the NFC category.  You can tell how you would rank in the 2nd gun div/class this way. 
  5. Reminder that 2nd guns must be transported in a gun bag or case.  PCC’s must have a chamber flag device in place (available at match for $2 if you lack one.)

 

A couple reminders regarding PCC: 1) use of chamber flags is mandatory. We have them available at a modest price if you don’t have one.  2) for all PCC’s not actually cased the carbine shall be vertical and remain so until the SO states LAMR.  Upon stage completion they shall remain vertical until cased. 

 

RANGE ACCESS DIRECTIONS

BEWARE GPS AND OIL CAPITAL RANGE LOCATION:  Some GPS locators provide erroneous information to access the range; others work just fine.  If your GPS directs you to “take 101st St. to 305th E. Ave” discontinue its use to locate Oil Capital; default to the directions below or the map provided.  The GPS location for the 101st Street Gate is 95 degrees 38'  2.291" West, 36 degrees 1' 9.718" North. The following streets, 91st St, 101st and 111th St South, do not run through to 305th East Ave from the west.

FROM EAST/NORTH:   US-412 and OK-66 come together just at the east outskirts of the Tulsa metro area.  Take US-412 East approximately 1 mile to Creek Turnpike.  Take 2nd right (south) 7 miles to 71st St/Kenosha exit.  Turn left on 71st/ Kenosha.  You will need a couple dollars worth of coins to feed the toll booths.  Follow BALANCE DIRECTIONS.

FROM WEST/SOUTH:  From I-44, US-169, and Hwy 75; take their junction with OK-51 and proceed eastbound toward and just past Broken Arrow.  Take exit off OK-51 marked Kenosha St. Turn left, and then go 1/3 mi. to intersection of Kenosha/71st. with 193rd East Av.  Follow BALANCE DIRECTIONS.

BALANCE DIRECTIONS:  Proceed east on 71st/Kenosha approximately 7 miles.  Road will change from a 4 lane to a 2 lane.  Look for County Maintenance barn on RH just before the first 4-way stop.  At this FIRST 4-way stop, turn right (south) on 305th East Ave/Coweta Rd, and then go exactly 3 miles.  Turn left on 101st Street South and then immediately left again into Oil Capital Club site drive.  Proceed into Club site; bear right at the “Y” to the match area.
