    Idpa is really great and I do enjoy it. We just finished our Georgia State match and had right at 200 shooters doing thirteen stages.

    Visit "youtube" and search "gadpa 2009 georgia State match" I hate to link it because some weird stuff shows up sometimes in a link from youtube.

    Thumbs up

    You are lookin' real good there JD.

    What?!? Your 1911 actually functioned flawlessly?

    I thought only Glocks did that.

    You might appreciate the extra depth perception and increased contrast that a pair of medium Yellowish/Amber shooting glasses will give you more than clear lenses.
    Every little bit helps.

    Oh....and the vest doesn't look bad at all.

    Thanks for posting this. I want to get into IDPA this coming year if time will allow. Between working full-time, being a single parent and going back to school in January, I may not have the time, but this thread is motivating me..

    Ps--Happy Birthday JD! And come out and try USPSA. I dearly love IDPA, but to be honest, you'll get more practice and see more improvement in your gun handling skills, faster from USPSA. Heck, you shoot more. <g> And "Single Stack" runs exactly the same gear that you shot in IDPA. You can even wear the vest if you want.

    Actually, I had a pair of amber lenses in the bag, it was almost too bright with them on.

    I'll think about it, but I can't shoot them all and given the choices, I'll stick with IDPA for now and try and catch every other USPSA practice session.

    Sounds good bud. Meanwhile, why don't ya come up with some stages for our November match.

    I'm going to do one where you start facing sideways at a 100# heavy bag hanging on a frame. At the beep, you have to hit the bag hard enough to knock it back, knocking over a popper, and then engage the targets. This should be a great "get off the "X" stage (because the bag will swing back at ya).

    I think we'll revamp our "disarm" stage--you start with a shotgun on your chest, grab the barrel, shoot from retention, and run the rest of the stage. It's a crowd pleaser. ("Shotgun" is a pool floatie on a hinge and pivot).

    We may run the "foggy goggle" stages again. This is where you've been knocked down, losing your prescription glasses (simulated by using goggles swiped with acetone). It's a bearcat. <g>

    I need 3-4 more stages, JD. Homework, Marine!

    LOL
