Not sure on scoring yet, as I just got back from shooting, but what a blast it was. Apparently I did well from what I was told though. In this video I got extra credit for style points.

If you missed it, on the first target I actually took the head off in one shot lol.

IDPA is addicting and infectious. The more I see and do of it, the more I want to do more of it!

Nice shooting in your video. Double no-shoot swingers?! I kept wanting to yell "Get down (you stupid no-shoots)!" : D

And yeah, your first target is most definitely neutralized. Down zero!

At about 3 -5 secs of video you had your muzzle pointed way up over the berm and it looks like close to breaking the 180 rule (might be the camera angle though). Try approaching cover farther away and you won't have to crowd cover causing this to happen. Also makes slicing easier.

Shoot safe! Have fun.

So got results back, placed 21rst out of 49 in my division. Considering I've not shot laying down or while moving I'm pretty damn happy with these results :D

Did some number crunching, and if I look at just overall scores including people with enhanced guns, I run stock, I was 39 out 109 for my first match. Not too shabby :D

Here's a video of my first IDPA Match. Didn't do to great, but learned a few things and had a blast.

Very nice! Are you using your duty setup? I'm wondering why no cover garment was required.
They were doing revolutionary war scenarios so I'm guessing thats why no cover up was used, apparently they normally do at this club. I was actually not using my CCW setup. I just gotten my G34 and the new holster so I wanted to try those out. I'm thinking though that I'm going to start using my G19 and my IWB, as my friend put it, IDPA is a great way to practice CCW firing. The G34 will then move more towards IPSC or USPSA and of course GSSF.

I just shot my first idpa a few months back.. I used my everyday setup a Glock 19 under a tshirt, I got alot of compliments from alot of seasoned shooters because I pulled my shirt up and drew from a king tuk iwb holster, my theory is if your going to run a idpa event and wear one of those "shooting vests" you better wear your "vest" all the time. I didnt like how I saw all these people thowing this flimsy vest out of the way all while im thinking to myself, thats not what you wear all day every day. I guess my point is if your going to do idpa for nothing but the sport whatever, but it is a great way to enhance your performance under stress and tell you if your every day carry gear is up to snuff or if you can even manage it, I saw a guy, a very nice respectable man in his 40's out there using a blackhawk holster and he couldnt manage to activate the index finger release, I talked to him afterwards and said hey man i know your bummed out but you just found something out now that cost you a few seconds on your score , not out on the street where it really counts.

Just some food for thought

Cheers, Dave

I saw a lot of "shoot me vest" at my first IDPA also. I guess everyone wears it all the time, no telling. I wore my t-shirt, and an open "button up" shirt. It is what I try to wear every day.

Do it at least once, just to test your carry set-up.

9 out of 28!? Wow, great job.

James Yeager, who is a controversial guy, wrote a pretty good article on IDPA. http://www.tacticalresponse.com/d/node/233

I'm not a gamer. I wear my CC Crossbreed holster, 1 mag pouch, and shoot either my 23 or 26. I wear the same type of clothes at matches that I wear daily, typically a tucked teeshirt and an untucked, buttoned down short sleeve.

Just how I do it. Nothing fancy. Its a lot of fun.
