    Just purchased a 9 mm CZ85 Combat as a starter gun for IPSC competition, until I get the courage to move on to a .40 or .45. Can anyone give me any suggestions for this particular firearm?

    Hiya' Cricket, it's good to see your interest in competition shooting.
    I personally shot Bullseye with a S&W mdl. 41, 5 1/2" heavy barrel and a High Standard Victor for my rimfire guns, and A S&W mdl. 52-2 and a Colt Gold cup for my centerfire guns.

    It's a whole lot of fun.

    As far as your particular gun and IPSC question, I'm sure 1 of our resident shooters will be more than happy to take a shot at answering your questions.

    Be sure to keep us up to date on how you're doing!

    I am also thinking about doing the IPSC thing. I got some laterature at a gunshow a couple days ago when some guys at a table tried to recruit me. Looks like fun.

    You may want to consider a trigger job. You will need at least four magazines, mag pouches, and a good holster.
    If your just getting started in competition, it would be a good idea to try some IDPA matches also.
    Do you reload yet ? If not, you will with all the practice you'll be doing.
    Great sport, I hope you enjoy it. Good luck.

    What you can do to your gun, depends on what division you're shooting in.

    Check the ranges in your local area, and go check it out once. I went out a couple of weeks ago just to watch. I must warn you it is addictive though. I bought a Para Ordnance P-14 Stainless, it had some work done, and a good trigger job. It is currently at the gunsmith, getting a skelitonized hammer and a beavertail grip safety. I am looking forward to shooting the next time out. Good luck.

    shot IPSC for two+ years, Limited class with a Series 80 .45 - had a fantastic time.

    Four mags is about right, stock gun is fine. The rest depends on your interest, competitive nature, and pocketbook. You'll see people walking around with $2-300 worth of Safariland holster rigs, and you'll probably need such if you are good enough to compete at the top levels of your local club, but don't sweat it to begin with - go, have a good time, compete against yourself / your own performance, get good (and safe) before you worry about being 'fast'.
