Isn't the spirit of IDPA (or at least was initially) supposed to be a "shoot what you carry" type thing? Are you even allowed to use a non-OEM barrel? Sorry for my ignorance, I'm no expert.
Sometimes I carry my g26. Sometimes I carry my 2011. Just what I'm wearing, and how much I'm concerned with printing. My 2011 isn't set up so drastic it can't be a safe carry weapon. The spirit of IDPA is to shoot defensive pistols, which my 2011 is, even if I don't *always* carry it. I definitely prefer it to my glock, though.
