    My 1st IDPA Match

    Got to shoot in a two gun IDPA match Saturday.
    19 shooters, I finished 11th.
    Seeing as I:
    1.Hadn't shot 12 gauge for years and years until this week
    2. I ran out of shells on the 1st stage with two targets to go...with 2 boxes of shells in my bag
    3. The base pads on my carry mags wouldn't allow them to seat in my Warrior with the magwell; I ended up with my bobtail Talon for the pistol stages, GREAT for concealment, lousy for fast reloads
    4. I got flustered on the last pistol stage and lost my place on the headshots

    I was VERY happy with 11th. I'm hooked. If you hadn't shot IDPA, or a IDPA style match, you're missing out on FUN. I understand now what Lima was talking about. I was point shooting most of the pistol stages without even thinking about it. There were two longer shots, one on steel on carboard where I had to force myself to slow down and see the sights.

    Welcome to the Fold!
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    It is a ton of fun, I wish my work would allow me the time to go to a few more matches.
