    As a new handgun owner I am interested in getting into some type of competition.

    Which do you suggest for my first competition.

    thanks

    IDPA. Less cost and as much fun. Check for matches in your area.

    IDPA is not as competative. A great place to start. You can watch most matches for free and many allow first time shoooters to compete for free.

    Advise the match director it's your first time and they will likely match you up with someone that's been around awhile to show you the ropes and review basic range commands with you.

    Good Luck
    :cool:

    How about a discription of the rules and course of fire for IDPA?
