There are several clubs in the Idaho and surrounding area that hold monthly USPSA matches: 

Idaho Society of Practical Shooters (ISPS) at the Nampa Rod and Gun Club in Nampa, Idaho
http://nragc.com/
ISPS hosts matches on the 3rd Sunday of the month at the NRGC outdoor range.

Gem County Speed Shooters (GCSS) at the Gem County Rod and Gun Club in Emmett, Idaho
http://www.gcrgc.org/
GCSS hosts matches on the 4th Saturday of the month.

South East Idaho Practical Shooters (SEIPS) at their range in Idaho Falls, Idaho
http://www.seips.org/index.htm
SEIPS hosts matches on the 2nd Saturday of the month.

Powder River Practical Shooters (PRPS) at the Powder River Sportsman Club in Baker City, Oregon
http://www.prpshooters.com/
PRPS hosts matches on the 4th Sunday of the month from March thru Nov.

USPSA matches are open to the general public, and you do not have to be a member of USPSA or the host club to participate in a USPSA match. Monthly matches at the above clubs are typically considered Level I matches (local level), and are comprised of four to five stages and one classifier stage.  Typical round counts are usually in the neighborhood of 125-150 rounds minimum.  Most matches start around 0900 or 1000 hrs, depending on the time of year, and are usually concluded by early afternoon. 

We will endeavor to post a monthly thread on the upcoming USPSA matches for each month.

USPSA Membership to shoot a match:

Level I matches (local matches like what we shoot each month at Nampa, Emmett, Baker City, Idaho Falls) do not require USPSA membership. 

Level II matches, such as a a State or Sectional Championship that is sanctioned by USPSA requires that all competitors be members of USPSA, but you do not need to have a classification in any division on file. 

Level III matches are usually Area Championship matches and USPSA membership is mandatory.

Level IV matches are National Championships, and USPSA membership is mandatory.

I only intend to shoot local matches (Level I), what are the benefits of being a member?
USPSA membership only costs $40 per year, and if you have a family member that also wants to shoot and be a member they can be an associate member off your membership for only $25. 

Membership gains you several things:
-First and foremost, your scores from each classifier stage are submitted into the national database and you can start earning a classification (U, D, C, B, A, M, and GM) for the divisions that you compete in. 
-You also get a subscription to the USPSA magazine Front Site that is published every other month.
-You are eligible to shoot at Level II and higher matches (if you enjoy club level matches, major matches are much bigger, more better, and more fun). 
-You get access to the USPSA member's only portion of the website to access features such as online squadding for Level II and higher matches, an archive of your classifier scores, a summary of your scores from a major match with a break down by stage and points (for later studying if you're into numbers), access to the USPSA for sale site, etc...
-You also get to support an organization that supports our sport!  But the truth of the matter, USPSA makes money off each match from the activity fees that are submitted by the host club for each shooter -member or not.

Bottom line, you don't have to be a USPSA member, or even a member of the host club to shoot a USPSA match.  But if you want to join, here is how:  https://www.uspsa.org/uspsa-join-renew.php

All told, there are over 400 USPSA affiliated club in the United States, and it is safe to say that any given weekend there is most likely a match being shot somewhere. 

So if you are traveling and want to combine some buisness with pleasure, it is pretty easy to locate a club or match anywhere in the country. 

For local Level I matches, I recommend you use this link to find USPSA clubs:  http://www.uspsa.org/locate-uspsa-clubs.php

Once you locate a club close to your desitination, look on their website for match dates, or contact the Club Contact listed. 

For major matches such as Level II or III (but be warned, major matches usually require advanced registration), you can use the USPSA feature on the website to locate a match:  http://www.uspsa.org/uspsa-match-listing.php

Are the USPSA matches still being held?
When are they currently scheduled for the Boise area (Nampa, Emmett, etc)?
Not much traffic on any of the matches for the last year which is sad as that was what got me shooting a few.
Hoping to get back in and giving it a go again.

That was easy to look up matches.....NOT.
Emmett has a match in three months.
Nampa has a match in 5 days.  Click on the link and they want you to register and sign-up.

User friendly that page is not.

Not sure why shoots no longer get updated on this page.

I believe the reason that the shoots no longer get updated on this web page is that the person ,or persons , that used to do it no longer do. J Mack mentioned a while back that he was trying to keep this afloat without some of the technical skills required to keep all aspects of the site current with one of those things being the calendar. If you know someone who possesses the correct skill set and would be willing to donate their time I am sure J Mack would love the help.
