Have a blast

in the birthplace of the Atom Bomb!

Event Dossier: The Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club (LASC) is hosting the second-annual Atomic City Challenge, a Tier 2 International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) match on Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020, in Los Alamos, NM.


The match consists of 9 exciting stages based on Los Alamos folklore, history and science. Be sure to pack your light, because the match includes one no-light/low-light stage. The Atomic City Challenge is open to all classifications and all divisions, except PCC.

Staff will shoot Friday, July 31, and competitors will shoot on Saturday, Aug. 1. A raffle for all registrants after the match will offer a table full of great prizes!


Zero Hour: Aug. 1, 2020, from 7:30 am to 5 pm. (Staff reports the day before at the same time for their shoot.)

Match Fee: $90, including lunch, which will be provided during the match.


We heard your feedback about last year's T-shirt, so we will be changing vendors and offering a better-quality, better-fitting shirt, which you will be able to order for nominal additional cost on the registration page.


Cancellation Policy: A full refund will be granted up to July 1, 2020, after which time no refund will be given.
