Default First IDPA match

I was talking about this on chat last night but our local IDPA club is holding a BUG (backup gun) match next Monday. I've watched some of the local matches but I never took the plunge as I prefer something with a bit less regulation. Anyway, the local club director basically called me out on my local forum so since I'll be in town I'm going to give it a go.

I had to ask whether pocket holsters are OK since that's all I have for my BUGs and I was told yes they are. So, next Monday I'm going to load up the j-frame and give it a go...

I actually just did my 1st IDPA shoot this last weekend, it was also a BUG shoot. Didn't need a holster for the shoot I did, the starts were either from a ready position or with the gun on a table. It was fun, I'll probably do it again.

Threw the j-frame in the range bag this morning (along with the Springer TGO) and I'm stopping at the range after work this evening. I haven't shot the little Airweight much so I need to see how badly I suck...

Well, range bag is in the truck and I'll be shooting the PPK this evening.

(I have the long slide with me so I'll pistol whip anyone that makes fun of my BUG shooting prowess)

When I was shooting IDPA a pocket holster was not allowed for any stages. You may want to come up with a plan B. Range officers like to be able to see the pistol in the holster. Also, I think they will be leery of possible accidental discharges when drawing at the sound of the buzzer.
