Remember not to fall into the "new shooter" competition trap. Many of those experienced USPSA shooters are fast and accurate. They've dropped lots of cash in equipment, practice time and can be non-approachable at times. They (not all) take the competition very serious and some tend to stay within a specific group of other talented speed shooters. After a few visits, you'll know who to ask questions and those to stay away from. Nonetheless, learn from them all by observing techniques and procedures. Don't try to copy their speed. Shoot at YOUR pace and build up self shooting confidence. I competed there for a few years, but ammo and gas prices have put a halt to my shooting days. You might consider the IDPA courses offered as well. I found most all of those guys to be more approachable. They are however two different shooting sports with different shooting mindsets. Good luck.
