    idpa recommendation for cover garment?

    oh boy am i in trouble...i've been shooting steel challenge for almost 2 years now, and i decided to try something different, so I started shooting idpa, last Saturday I shot my 3rd match, and I used a button up denim shirt as my cover garment, its an old shirt, with a few holes, but at last Saturdays match (on 2 stages) one of the holes caught on the pocket clip for my knife, luckily I noticed it during loading, and was able to free it before shooting.

    but now I need some recommendations from experienced idpa shooters, what do you use?, and where did you buy it?, im shooting a match this Saturday again (2020 postal match), and I know I wont have anything by then, unless I buy another button up shirt.

    but what do the other idpa shooters here use? what should I look for? any features I should have?

    I wear regular, comfortable clothes, and switched to USPSA. Worked for me.

    that's the OTHER shooting competition I want to try! but the closest uspsa match is an hour away (Owensboro Kentucky)

    right now im smack dab between west side sportsmans club (Evansville Indiana) and redbrush rifle range(Newburgh Indiana) literally 1/2 way between both clubs!!!!!!

    I live exactly 22 mins away from wssc and 22 mins away from redbrush! (according to google maps!)

    so far, the rules are the biggest drawback to idpa!, i'm learning as I go, but when I joined idpa today, I paid an 5 bucks for a hard copy of the rules to be mailed to me! if I shoot this Saturday, and the tears of god don't wash out the match! (2-3 inches of rain are forecast), Saturday will be the 4th idpa match ive shot!, as I told the match idpa director, in steel challenge, i stand in the box, draw and shoot!, I don't have to slice the pie, I don't have to worry about a mag with a bullet hitting the ground, or only loading 9 rounds instead of 10, among all the other rules!

    but until I start getting mad at myself for shooting bad, i'll keep shooting idpa (for at least a year, till my membership expires)

    The rules are the worst part of IDPA. The fact that they are applied unevenly is runner up. The fact that they hide their justification of the rules as “mimicking reality” is next. I could go on for days.

    So, that is the shooting I hear when I'm at my daughters! She lives about 5 minutes from West Side. I may have to check them out sometime when I go visit her and the grand kids.

    Shoot everything you can. There are a few of us who play all the games with the understanding that none of them can come close to real world. We do it for the trigger time and the stress of rules in the sport. For IDPA the vest or shirt or even untucked tshirt will work if you realize that the real award in any of the sports is not the particleboard plaque you might win, but the experience of getting one with your equipment. If anyone wants a more street approach but still play the games, he can forego the fancy equipment that you wouldn’t carry on the street. Good luck and welcome to the shooting sports.

    I've used a cheap Carhartt vest. Little cheaper than the 511 stuff the who's who wears

    Walmart vest looks good.. I don't recommend the Target shirts.
