    @Blades... Great that you got to participate in that. I have watched a match but have as yet not participated. Looks to be great fun and a learning experience.
    Here it is

    World's Smallest Helmet Cam

    A little smaller than a pack of gum.






    Attachment has been modified slightly, lens is a little lower and farther forward. Allowing for a slight left cant to make up for the offset of ther camera to the right.

    Running??? The older I get the faster I run. 50 years ago 70 years old seem a long way off and I could run as fast I wanted and not get near it. NOW with it less then 1 year away It seem like I am running fast enought to catch it.

    You could when points down was x .3 seconds instead of .5.

    The learning experience is worth every penny and all the sweat.

    Next, reloads. Cock the gun. On the start, reload it. When finished loading dry fire. The sights must bein the -0 one and you must beat the par time beep or it doesn't count.
    Next? Get Andeson's book on dryfire practice/ Invaliable. Also get Saul Kisch' book on Perfect practice.

    Good luck, have a great time. I am an IDPA Master class shooter, and dry fire is 80 to 90 percent o my practice. It works!

    Thanks Dan!
    I'll look for the books, and start the dry fire regimen you suggested.

    Blades, the safety officers had no issues with your Remora? Was it the regular Remora, or the newer OWB style that velcro attaches to your belt?

    Regular Remora, with reinforced top. Our safety officer didn't have any issues, I used it all day.

    I've never participated in one before, but have heard many good things. How newbie friendly are they?

    Our matches are very newbie friendly. Always a new shooters meeting to explain the rules. Lots of patience with a new shooter.

    I did one sort of similar to IDPA called the Tidewater Top Shot which is held every second Saturday of the month at the C2 Center. Also my first time participating in a combat shooting competition and also surprised to have made the Top 10. There were 4 stages and some of the stages containing about 2-3 events. Of all the rest drawing from open carry, I was the only one who drew from concealment as I was wearing a vest. The gun I used at the competition was my H&K USP .40. Looking forward to another one next month but with my S&W Model 457 .45 this time.

    It was great and also meeting with my CC class instructor again. Despite being the only Asian/Filipino American competitor in the event, I was not looked at strangely and was treated like a fellow human being..

    Joined a new range a month ago. They do a modified IDPA. I am so looking forward to it.
    Enjoyed your post. Congrats on your first time!

    IDPA sounds like a lot of fun! I'm just getting into handguns, and this sounds like a great way to get some good experience.
    I looked into it and a conservation club nearby does a IDPA shoot once a month.

    Very friendly! There was three newbies in our group, and they had every one else shoot first so we could watch on the first two stages. They helped me a few times, with tips and advice.

    Try it, at least once. It is worth it.
