I competed in IDPA in 97-98. Our club in Jackson, MS died due to lack of interest. My old # was A-1812, if that tells you how long ago it was. I don't think IDPA will happen here again for long, long time.
We do have a great USPSA club, as well an ICORE one. We'll start our steel matches in November also. Those programs are busting at the seams. The steel program will be as well because anyone can shoot in it. Auto-loaders, revolvers, .22's, even cowboy action guys will have their own division. And, you can enter more than one division. $5.00 per match. Enter as many as you like.
