I haven't shot the IDPA but after having just read the rules. I like it. It seems more practical then most.
What I really like it is the penalty for misses. I shot a couple of steel matches and its all about speed and mag. capacity. Spray and pray.
What I'd like to see (and maybe they have it and I missed it) is a classification for the 5 Shot stubby.
I suppose you can shoot it in the SSR class.
Would they allow you to draw from the pocket if thats the way you carry your revolver??
I know that in ICORE (at least in the local matches) I pay to shoot a second gun and since its my 642, I'm allowed to use my pocket.
