    I'm curious as to how many of you hope to shoot your regular run of pistol matches this summer, what your affiliated clubs hope to host and if you know, will round counts go down, stages be limited, etc., due to shortages?

    Well I decided to change divisions at the last minute for my last sanctioned match of the year. So I dusted off my Springfield EMP after not shooting it for a year and shot the Mountain Valley Melee IDPA match where I managed 1st place CCP/ Sharpshooter. Unfortunately I didn’t beat enough for...

    Today, despite the hot weather, a total of 67 shooters showed up at one of our local IDPA matches. Over half of the shooters were competing in SSP. One of the guys in my squad is NYPD, and he showed up with his duty belt and sidearm (a Glock with a 12# trigger). The overall skill level of the...

    I am selling - once more practically giving away - another Wilson of mine. This has been strictly a range gun, no daily carry, and I am making room in the safe. It is an Elite Professional in 9mm and has an extra fitted comp barrel for more range fun!. If you have ever shot one in 9mm the recoil...

    I'm looking for IDPA cover garment ideas. So, here's your chance to sachay down virtual catwalk, and show off your take on an IDPA cover garment. Remember, head up, hands on hips, and one foot directly in front of the other. :grin:

    I just completed my 2nd IDPA match. The weather was perfect. The people were awesome. I managed to come in 2nd place overall in CDP (out of 9 people), despite botching one of the stages, and dragging ass in the classifier. Today was a good day. The match was hosted by the same range as before...

    I participated in my first IDPA match yesterday. I had an awesome time, and met a lot of good people. I thought it would be constructive to write up an After Action Report (AAR) of my experience: it helps me to process and learn from my experience, and it opens the opportunity for others to...

    I completed my first IDPA match yesterday. (Just a local Tier 1 match.) I competed in CDP with my Guncrafter No Name. I had a blast! Anyway, there were quite few revolver guys in my squad. When the match was over and we were packing things up, one of them approached me about ICORE. He tried to...

    Made it to my first match today, despite a little hiccup on the family scene. Me and my A2 had no failures, no safety penalties, and no meaningful procedural errors. I did have a couple at the beginning, but I was unaware of some of the foot placement rules. I hit most of my targets, most of...

    I discovered today that there is an active match shooting community around where I live. I was completely out of the loop. Had no idea. Been asking around gun stores and ranges for months. I went to where I thought there was a match last Sat but no one was there. After that I emailed the range...

    Does anyone know if the STI Hex-Tac 3.0 2011 9mm will fit in the IDPA CCP box? According to the STI catalog, it’s plenty short and thin enough but I don’t know if the listed height is with the mag inserted or not? Thanks in advance.

    I recently shot my first IDPA match at the invitation of @v1911 and decided to write a review on IDPA as a whole and whether it has any relevance to real life usage of a firearm. As always I'm interested in feedback. Here's a link to the article and video from the match...

    Been a while since I've been able to post any video from a match, but I managed to get these posted from our club match on Sunday. While my performance was filled with technical (AKA Time Eating) errors, I managed to take 1st in CDP division and 4th overall. Please feel free to critique, I...
