    Been waiting on my new holster and mag pouches so I can go out and shoot some IDPA matches real soon with the right equipment. Its going to make it alot more fun. I can't wait to get back to Ant hill range and get me a good workout on a Sunday afternoon. Peace all...

    Doesn't look like there is an IDPA club within 150 miles of me. Guess I'll have to pass for now.

    Bro, I gotta drive anywhere from 1 1/2hrs. to 2 1/2 hrs. to get to a club that has IDPA and thats in the next state. Its worth it for a good day of shooting for me.

    Bro, I've got to drive an hour to get to the nearest McDonalds... Since most of the IDPA clubs in this state are in the Seattle area, I'm looking at a 3-4 hour drive one way.

    If I want to go shooting, I drive 5 minutes to the Middle of Nowhere and turn left. Go up the gravel road and I get an entire mountain range to shoot on.

    Yikes bro, Thats a hike. I kinda wish I could take a drive and shoot out doors and be in nature and unbothered while training or practicing.There might be a few clubs not too far for IDPA here but I envy what you have.

    There's a reason I put my Zip Code in my profile.

    I'm giving some thought to trying it out. I have no desire or intention of trying to "win" anything, but it looks like a load of fun, and a great way to improve my practical shooting experience for real world scenarios.
    Exactly the reason I started shooting some local IDPA matches here in Iowa...it is a great way to shoot differing scenarios rather than just shoot at the range at bullseyes. It is a fun and educational series, I ended up becoming a Safety Officer with the local club as well, it's a good way to learn the rules and help give back as well. I'm usually at the mid-pack to lower end of the "competitions" but with my bad back I have no illusions of "winning" at these meets, I just want to sharpen the skills that are part of using/carrying a weapon and along with trying to hit at least one handgun and/or rifle class a year this is a very economical way of learning as well.

    I have been shooting IDPA for more than 5 years and I do recommend it.
    The competition is more with yourself . . . . As you attempt to get better.

    Of course as time goes on some individuals do challenge each other but the results are how much you can improve.
    I find that the fun is in not shooting at a still target while you are standing still.
