I have been known to shoot a match or two.
45Smashemflat, you can set up and do the drills, but until you own and use a timer, you will never see your actual improvement.
IDPA is a great sport, less costly than IPSC. Some of the matches in my area are done with a twist. There is almost always a very difficult shot in each stage. Example: 1st target, 7 yards, Double tap, then shoot a bowling pin at 50 yards before moving to cover for the next target. If you miss, the timer keeps running until you knock down the pin. Stressful fun.
