first try at anything close to IPSC/USPSA IDPA
I copied part of this from another thread I started from my gun repair. Just expanded on it here.
I do have to say this, the IPSC/USPSA style shooting is harder then it looks. This wasn't a sanctioned match or anything, just me and a buddies interpretation of what we have seen on the you tube matches. We tried several variations on starting positions and stances. It was a blast. My shooting skills in a situation like this definately need work. We mainly just did double tap chest, once in the head. Also tried the IDPA version with examining threat levels and having to eliminate two "close.threats" by tapping them twice but one shot for left then right back to left then right again.
I bought several IPSC targets from my local shop and bought 1" x10' peices of pvc for $1.43 per 10 foot stick and cut them in half at angles so I could drive them in the ground. Drove one piece in a.d then poked holes in all four corners of targets and zip tied one side then drove second pole in at correct distance. It was pretty cool.
My buddy had a glock 22 I was shooting my SR9. He wasnt as into the defense/tactical side of.it but still had fun. I tried to make it more interesting and do.mag changes and holler out things like " drop the weapon". Haha. I liked it. We were timing it with just regular stop watches. Another guy was telling me his first time in a real comp he was so nervous he dropped the mag trying to reload, dropped a mag prematurely, was shaking because all of the adrenaline and had a hard time with it at a competetive level. I hope I would do better!
