Shot with some long lost family last weekend up at the local sport shooting range (Memphis sport shooting association or MSSA), it had a very country club like feel (and cost of membership too). They literally had every kind of range I would want to shoot at,i never knew it existed until they told me they were members and invited me out there... and its 10 minutes down the road! But I checked out their web page and its where the local I.D.P.A. has their meets at,I'm currently looking to either sell my fnp-45 and get into a walther PPQ or P99AS in 9mm or trade it in for one of them at a lgs and thought this would be a fantastic gun to start to get into IDPA if it is in fact the way I think it is. From the way IDPA is described on the sports website it seems like an extremely good way to establish a good foundation and build advanced skill levels and muscle memory with your ccw. Also seems like it would be cheaper way of becoming and staying proffecient with your handgun than paying for high dollar fighting pistol classes. Am I correct in these assumptions? Do you all who have tried it think it can double as a more structured type of training than going to your local range and plinking once a month?
