    My first IDPA, and it was a classifier!

    First the awesome news... I qualified as a Sharp Shooter on my first shooting match ever.

    Even better was the fun that I had during the comp. There was a great gentleman that took me under his wing offering excellent coaching advice and generally good conversation.

    The volunteer Safety Officers ran a great match. Very clear instructions and very patient with us newbies (happy to report that there were at least a dozen of us.)

    Pistol - Walther PPQ in 9 mm.

    I can't wait for a real match. That was a blast!

    Yea IDPA is allot of fun.

    Actually, the classifier is rather boring compared to the regular IDPA scenarios and stages.
    I think, therefore I am...

    I want to go shoot it this weekend. It will depend on how I feel after getting Lasik tomorrow.

    IDPA or Lasik?

    I am heading to the Range here Thursday and my instructor has said that he wants to have me practice some IDPA drills. I think it would be a great way to get continual practice. Hoping I can actually hit what I aim at.

    And, yes it does sound like fun (IDPA, although I could use the lasik too)

    Totally a non-sequitur, but if I was from Oregon, my screen name would have to be 'Oregunner', but NiceAsh does have a ring to it.

    IDPA is indeed a blast and good practice, esp. if you shoot what you carry (I'll never "win" shooting full house 357 mag, but that's not the point). I get down to NM from Chicago eight months of the year for it (oh, yeah, my wife lives there too).

    Congrats! I found a range local to me that puts on IDPA events. I'm really looking forward to giving it a try. To make it more fun my brother and step father are wanting to give it a go as well. Nothing better than spending family time at the range!
