IDPA - Round two - Invited myself

Never let it be said that I'm not an adrenaline addict.

I went out again for the IDPA meet today. Not to compete - just to have fun!

Not as many people this time. There were only about 20 that braved the rain and ice pellets. (Western, PA Spring) However, I did MUCH better I thought, no proceeduals, no FTN's and almost aced (1 down) one of the stages. I was more confident this time and had practiced a good deal before this match. With the small turnout, I'll probably still be at the bottom of the list but felt better about my control and accuracy this time.

Not a bad deal for 60 rounds and $10 - even with the bad weather.

Sounds like you learned alot in just two matches nthefrey.

One of the real good things about IDPA, and competition in general, is that it ups the pucker factor, especially for those that are new. Later, with experience, you lose some of that as you gain more control of yourself in the match (and really, isn't that the whole idea with training?) And you gain much familiarly with the very gun you carry (if you are smart enough to use that weapon in IDPA to begin with.)

Yes I know guys IDPA ain't training, but by training for the matches you do, uh, train. And if the techniques you train in are street relevant, well those IDPA matches kind of forced you to train for both the street and the match.

Glad you had fun. I'm hoping our outdoor shoots start up here soon.
As I go through life I keep coming to the same conclusion, people are generally stupid.
