Hollow Point Defensive Shooters


  • Saturday, August 19 2023 we will host our 8th annual "Andy Garwell Memorial Match" where all proceeds will again be donated in Andy's name.

  • This is the 12th year HPDS has been training and shooting matches at the Portage Rod and Gun Club.

  • The new shooting walls are complete at the Portage Rod and Gun Club. We now have 4 separate bays to safely shoot at once.

  • We are always looking for additional help as certified Safety Officers. Contact jbordeau@hollowpointshooters.org


The mission of HPDS is to create a safe and fun environment within the community to participate in one of America’s oldest sports. Our goal is to educate “We the People” in real-world scenarios by implementing defensive training tactics and marksmanship techniques for the purpose of defending ourselves and our families while exercising our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country . . .
-- James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, 8 June 1789

For our 11th year in a row, HPDS will be working with Portage Rod & Gun Club. We hold our meetings and shooting events there.
