Default Will we see IPSC / IDPA at Olympic?

With the number of shooting shows and the national interest of shooting that we have, should the US try to get IDPA or IPSC into the Olympics Summer Games?

I don't think so because it is more of an equipment game. THe olympics should/are about the human aspect. Sorry I can take a novice shooter put a $3k race gun in their hands and in less than a day have them shooting great.

That and both sports revolve around defending yourself. We all know that the UN and the olympic committee are against that.

Great idea and a noble undertaking but........who would champion this effort?

In today's geo-political anti-gun environment I think it's a nonstarter.

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!
