    Alright.. last year I managed to only do a single IDPA match and some steal practice. This changes this year! I have been working on getting in better shape and that has started going well for me, so now I want to make sure I actually get out to some matches. At least once a month and go from there.

    I have an STI Trojan in bound to my FFL sometime this week, which other than grips is going to be run as it came for now. (Has STI Mag-well and Dawson Fiber Front already.)

    I will also have a total of 6 Wilson 10 RD ETM 9mm mags as well, I want more.. but 6 should do. I will have whatever it comes with as a Barney mag.

    I need a holster setup that I can use for IDPA and USPSA SS if possible.. I am thinking Blade Tech? I have a Safariland Paddle that works okay, but I am not in love with it. I only have some really crappy mag pouches so I am looking for some nicer ones that can be used for both sports.

    Though I did think about doing a simple double pouch for IDPA and a few CR or W/E for USPSA. So when I shoot USPSA the first are fast my additional are in the normal double pouch. Until I can get an entire setup for each. I am waiting on a belt for USPSA till I get down in lbs a little more.

    I'm not sure about IDPA, but I'm using a Bladetech DOH (with the DOH removed), CR Speed belt, and CR Speed pouches. Awesome setup, highly worth it IMO. I got it all from Shooter's Connection, great service.

    I shoot at Miami Rifle & Pistol ( and Miamisburg (

    Which club would you say is more friendly...

    The Bladetech is legal for IDPA, CR Speed gear not so much. Mag pouches are my issue, I do not care for the Bladetech ones. I was looking at Comp Tac today, and I may try some of them. The ones with the TechLock are supposed to be legal for both.

    For the holster to be legal in USPSA, the grip/trigger guard junction need to be at/above the top of the belt. I use Comp-Tac Belt Holsters for both SS and Prod. I get my mag pouches from Tactical Kydex on GlockTalk. Last time I bought from him prices were running $20 for a pair of single pouches and $25 for a double pouch. I use his stuff in both of my setups and haven't had any issues with them.

    Both clubs are friendly, and a lot of people shoot both. However, IMO, Miami is a better club, and a better match. They also always have a better turn out.

    I finally decided to start this year with two goals, shoot only 1911 and shoot IDPA. I have started both and having a great time.

    Just an update, I did make it out to one match and it was a lot of fun... and a lot less stressful than I thought. Everyone was super nice and helpful... other than polizi1.

    I am going to be doing 2 a month June on.. all the dates fell bad for me in May. I may try to make a practice match this month but with my work and school this is just a bad month.

    I do think I am going to run my M&P for a bit now, but we shall see. I am working on some other stuff but an HVAC replacement is going to slow me down for a bit with new toys.
