    I shoot in IDPA with my XD9. I believe we should be profient if we're going to carry(CCW). It's an outdoor range so we can pretty much shoot year-round here. Don't have to worry about rain but the heat can really be a factor tho, been in the 110* range lately.

    IPSC because it's what is available. I just started about a month ago. It is very addictive. I've missed the last couple of Tuesdays because of work travel. I shot my first full match Saturday. The range I shot at had 2 texas stars. I nailed my second star with one shot a plate and that was a real ego booster. I totally screwed up my qualifier stage and that is humbling. I like the idea of IDPA but there is nowhere local to shoot it.

    Things IPSC is making me improve:

    1. Grip, bad habits you get away with just shooting paper don't fly.
    2. Magazine Changes, I don't believe in the Speed reload for deffensive purposes, however the mag changes do help build muscle memory.
    3. It reinforces the necessity of good fundamentals. When I try to move to quick and don't focus on sight picture, grip, trigger squeeze, etc..., I do very poorly. When I take my time I do far better.

    I just started shooting IPSC/USPSA this year.
    Started in production, think I'm going to switch to single stack next year.
    IDPA has too many goofy rules for my taste, but that's just me.

    There's a silhouette club near me. I think I'm going to go check that out the next time they meet. Falling steel targets at 50-200 yards sounds like a ton of fun.

    I just got started down the "Bullseye" road. Always been fairly accurate with weapons in general. Was a good shot with bows when I was younger (never used sights) and was a crack shot as a kid with all my air guns. So when I decided to get my first handgun bullseye shooting looked like a good place to start.

    Just got a Ruger Mark III competition target on Saturday and had my first session with my mentor tonight. He's a Master level Bullseye shooter and has been invaluable. It sure is a challenge. Even though it was my very first night with a brand new gun he put me through some paces. Had me shoot "timed fire" and "rapid fire" exactly like it would be done in competition. I actually did better on the rapid fire......shot a 76....all shots scored and three were in the black. (timed fire = 70 with four in the black but one didn't score). That was using the iron sites. He said I'm a natural......but we will see I guess. I'm just trying to have fun and won't worry to much about my scoring for now.....although I'm more competitive with myself than anything else.

    IDPA

    1. Its fun!

    2. Allows you to do things with a pistol you cannot do at a range. (i.e, drawing from a holster, moving and shooting)

    3. You dont know how good you are until you stack up against others.

    I am a dedicated USPSA shooter - this is why - I like the fast run and gun action of USPSA. Having to look at a stage and figure out the best way to shoot it makes you think and analyze. I think it helps in making the sport more challenging than just shooting at targets the way someone tells you to.

    Guys with bigger wallets and smaller pen... OH... sorry, you mean't shooting competition??? None right now. I'd love to try USPSA.

    We belong to a small local league at the range. We shoot a IDPA target at 20' to 50' with 6 shots at 5 different stages. It's fun to get together with other shooters and have a little competion.

    I shoot a PPC run by my local club. Southern style, only to 25 yards. A great bunch of guys to spend a Sunday afternoon with. The gentleman that runs the match puts on one of the most organized, smooth events I attend.

    IDPA mostly,some USPSA, but what I like most is SASS/cowboy action. I shoot .357 Ruger Blackhawks-1894c Marlin and an old 311 20 gauge Stevens double. What a hoot!!!!
