I'd suggest that you go to www.idpa.com
and check the link to see what clubs are in your area of Ohio. IDPA is probably the cheapest(least expensive) competition to get into, you'll need a holster, belt, mag pouch and three mags. Also, hearing and eye protection. Most IDPA clubs will let you shoot the first time without joining to see if you like it. Go to a local match, LISTEN CLOSELY TO THE SHOOTING OFFICERS and above all, HAVE FUN.
Anything worth shooting once, is worth shooting again.
If it ain't broke, break it. Someone needs the work
