I may be going to an IDPA meet with my dear 20y/o daughter tomorrow.
- What do these involve? I understand they have one or more 'stages' and are somewhat akin at least in theory to Dirty Harry's fake town.
- Why should she want to go? My desire for her to be a Sarah Conner type has both elements of wisdom and foolishness, and I am probably not qualified to decide where the line is. Thus I'm leaving it up to her if she wants to go. But I will certainly pass on any thoughts you might have. The event is perhaps an hour-and-a-half's drive or more from here, and an afternoon/evening in the big city (Roanoke, VA) will sweeten the pot... but it would be nice if she made a decision based on the benefits of the meet.
- Do we want to go for the show, or do they let rank newbies participate? We're pretty good at taking out large, close-in, stationary paper bad guys, but I don't know if we ought to even consider doing any shooting ourselves.
- Anything else you want to add? Love to have your advice.
