Visited the NC State IDPA championships
Had a blast! Wasn't shooting because I'm still new and IDPA uses a bit of pre-fire gun handling. Better safe and on the side-lines this year. Though some of the Saftey Officers did try to talk me into shooting. ;)
Interesting mix of people. No one I know but a few I had seen the day before. Most folks were drop dead nice though a few seemed to have that "competitor air" about them. Having been a competitor in other things I just had to laugh and quietly pray I never get that way.
There was the abundance of light weight vests that no one really wears in public. Except for one stage that had you put on a bathrobe! I've decided to shoot in my Hawaiian Shirt; the commando vest thing just kinda makes them seem like clones.
I'll see if I can get a list of the stages. They looked interesting and definately challenging!
