    New from Iowa

    Just dropping in to say hi. I am mainly a rifle/shotgun guy but have decided to get into the handgun aspect of firearms. Have always been intrigued to get into hand guns since my revolver has served me so well, but never took the plunge until now!

    Boone, Ames, Waterloo, DBQ, and Sioux City.

    Boone and Ames are probably your closet matches.
    Ames will be shooing next Sunday the 11th, you can find info on their matches here: CentralIowaIDPA : Central Iowa IDPA


    I'm up north of Marshalltown, there's some more clubs in the area that do USPSA, pretty sure there's one right in Ankeny.

    Welcome to the forum-I was raised in Reinbeck-west of Waterloo if I remeber. Been gone since dad died in 1957, but stillmade family there. I am 2X retired Mil/State LEO Firearms Instuctor/reloader for 20+ calibers. Claim no expert on any, just have lots of tee shirts/caps and enjoy helping share with new shooters.
