    We will be up to our usual fun and excitement in a safe manner this saturday August 9th. Everyone knows the drill by now and I won’t bore you with a long message. IF you are NEW to us let me know!!!!!! Send me an email ( e426c187@verizon.net ) and I will let you know the do’s and don’ts for HCFG

    I say this since we are now listed on indyracegun.com which lists all area matches of any kind and will soon be listed on INGO.

    You will need a dummy round for your pistol.

    I'm planning to go as a spectator. Is there anything I need to know? What's the starting time?

    Actually, you might as well go ahead and post the do's and don't here anyway.


    Edit: Never mind, I just saw the safety briefing and starting time part.

    I agree with Scutter. I'm not familiar with IDPA style matches and would love to read a rundown.

    Thanks.

    Here is a good place to start, the IDPA main page:

    International Defensive Pistol Association

    And a link to the Rule Book:

    http://www.idpa.com/Documents/IDPARuleBook2005.pdf

    On a more personal level I can tell you IDPA is a LOT of fun and very educational. The P in IDPA stands for "Practical" and in my opinion that is the most important part. IDPA will teach you the practical use of your personal protection firearm using various live fire scenarios, i.e. courses, under timed conditions. Accuracy and expediency are both challenged by the various courses and you will learn a lot about just what happens when you bring your firearm into play. It's a great way to become familiar with what happens when poop hits the whirling oscillator. I guess you could compare it to paintball, except you are using live fire at paper targets simulating bad guys. Bottom line it is a great way to hone, or DEVELOP, your skills with your firearm.

    The other great thing is that you get to spend time with some very knowledgeable and friendly gun owners and make friends. The competition is there, for sure, but the experience of actually firing your chosen form of protection in a stressful situation is invaluable.

    I'd be there, but I have another obligation.

    Try it Fen, it is fun and better training IMHO than just shooting at targets at the range.

    I might start showing up when I get all my house painting and moving done. Really wish I had time to go to this and the NFA day.

    +1 on that. I've shot IDPA two months in a row at ACC and it's great fun. There are some terms to understand carefully, like "tactical sequence" vs "tactical priority". Just go out there and shoot!
