Willie Lowman says: "IDPA is does not train you for real life scenarios, it trains you to shoot card board targets that will never shoot back at you.
If you want training, go to a real shooting class taught by a reputable instructor and practice what they tell you.
I say: Willie, please post a list of "shooting classes", taught by "reputable instructors", that are now using actual beligerant criminals (armed with pistols/knives/bats) actively trying to kill the students.
This could be quite a bit more usefull than simply shooting at "cardboard targets that will never shoot back at you".
Can't imagine their liability premiums.
Thanks in advance,
