Competition shooting

I am looking at getting into competition shooting with my Glock 23. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I go to get started just local in the New River Valley Virginia?

CHeck out IDPA and USPSA websites and find a match in your area. Get a holster and 2-5 mags and your ready to go

Some clubs if you join will have a way to get into the shooting sports. That's what I did but haven't had a chance to figure out how it all works out. When I joined my local club they said they are affiliated with the cmp which isn't what you are looking at but its an example.

Something near you...

I would second IDPA and USPSA (aka IPSC)

Beckley, WV holds a Glock shoot since you have a Glock.
