Default First IDPA Match

Yesterday I spent my birthday shooting my first IDPA match! All I have to say is that I'm going to need more ammo...

I had a great time, everyone was very helpful and supportive. I didn't get DQ'd and I don't think I finished last, so I'm happy. I'll also be going back again next month!

For anyone looking for a fun, action shooting event, I highly recommend the IDPA.

That's great Kodiak, and the more you do it, the more you will love it. I shoot IDPA matches down here about 6 times a year and shot my last one last month. What handgun caliper did ya use and what classification did you qualify for when ya shoot next time?

Most excellent and a belated Happy Birthday as well!

I used my Springfield XD9 Service, so they put me in the ESP category. They didn't hold a qualifier so I don't have a classification yet. I'm going to try to get that done soon.

All I know is that I had an awesome time. Came home smelling of cordite with a grin a mile wide on my face. :-)

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
