Instead of starting a new thread, I'll just add to this one.
I shot my first IDPA match today and had a blast! Literally and figuratively. We were rained out after only 3 COF out of the 6 COF planned, but I had such a great time anyway that I will do this again next month for certain.
They also had a three stage BUG COF I was looking forward to shooting, but the rain beat us there.
As I have limited equipment for this sort of thing, I used my Colt CC. I enjoyed using it, but can see where it could get expensive to feed it if I continue shooting these matches (and I will).
This was great fun and humbled me for sure. I am determined to do better next time...aren't you all?
As much as I believe that there is good in every person, I'm not so naive as to think that all people are essentially good. Evil and evil people exist. Deny that fact at your own risk.
