OK, somebody give me the lowdown on this Balota character. WoC seems to trust him, which says a lot, but now I'm someplace in Oklahoma hoping she's right.

He says he's taking me to an IDPA match tomorrow. What the heck is IDPA? Some kinda Penguin Association? Pengie would know about that. I hope it has something to do with guns. My trigger flipper has been itching something fierce.

Lookin for a little intel here guys. Gotta run before he catches me posting again.

Pengie Out

Well since none of you would give me any intel, Pengie went and got some on his own.

Balota's one of those open carry kinda guys, but he doesn't seem to be doing it to prove anything.

We went to an IDPA match. Balota helps set up and tear down. I think he's just gettin started. But the guys (and gals!) there seem to like him. They give him good advice. He tries to use it, but he's got a long way to go. (Not dissin him, that's what he said.) Except for a couple "senior moments", most of his targets were down zero or down one. Pengie isn't sure what that means, but the other guys seemed to think that was pretty good. He's pretty slow compared to a lot of the other guys, but they all said he's doing the right thing working on accuracy first. Guess he does take advice.

Next think Pengie learned is Balota doesn't know how to quit working. Think he overdid it. He got home, showered and crashed. But not before getting Pengie some tuna for lunch. Pengie startin to like Balota some. Pengie will give him some advice when he gets up.

Checkin up on me, Pengie? That's OK with me. Thought I'd give them the rest of the story.

Guess Pengie has never been to an IDPA match. When we finally got started, I was to be the first shooter on the first stage. Pengie listened carefully to the scenario description. He heard I would have a large amount of bearer bonds and some bad guys would be trying to take them from me. Pengie immediately starts to protect the briefcase.

Next stage involved putting the gun in a box. As soon as the gun was in the box, Pengie jumped in to see if he could run this stage for me. We finally convinced him to let me run the stage, but not before Pengie shared some sage wisdom about front sights. I need all the help I can get!

Starting to get hotter. Had to get Pengie cooled off. The water coolers worked great!

I made him promise not to pee in the pool. Cooled him off a few times. He had a strange grin that last time.

Here's Pengie trying to help me understand that I must not shoot the innocent. He picked up on the tactics pretty quick, but the scoring confused him. He got pretty mad the first time he saw me get 2 hits on head shots and the S.O. scored it down zero. Tried to explain it to him, but I'm not sure he understood it completely.

Pengie was trying to tell me how to clear these rooms. If I did what he suggested, I'm pretty sure I'd have been DQd, but he meant well. Fortunately no one had any flashbangs, so we tried it with just a handgun. Got it done, but Pengie was not impressed.

Pengie is not too happy being told no. But after that strange grin, I couldn't let him keep swimming in the coolers...
