    Shot my first IDPA match!

    It was so much fun! If you haven't tried it, you probably should, it shows where some of your flaws are and gives some practical training on things you might not do at home like tactical reloads, left hand shooting, etc. I didn't do great, but much better than expected. I was short one round on the first stage, which cost me a lot I think, and re-shot the wrong target after a miss under stress, whoops. Overall, it was a good experience and I want everyone to sign up for one next month.

    My results:
    6th place out of 15 in the Unclassified SSP division
    17th out of 34 overall
    and I actually got the best time of the whole match on the second stage!
    Total score was 120.74 (don't know if this is standardized or means anything compared to other matches), with 63 points down total, which is what hurt me.

    Definitely ready for next month!

    Nice. I'd like to get started in IDPA shooting after I get my pistol. Looks like a lot of fun and some good training. What gun did you use?

    A p2000 in .40. Yeah you should definitely check it out once you get some trigger time. Though I don't totally agree with the scoring system for defensive purposes, something similar should be compulsory for CC'ers.

    Matches are fun.

    Congratulations on shooting your first one. I hope you have many many more ahead of you.
