I've never shot IDPA before but I'm going to start and I need some info.

Will Fobus belt holsters work for IDPA?

Will Fobus mag pouches work for IDPA if they are the kind that clip over a belt?

Are the new uncle mikes (blade tec clone) holsters IDPA approved?

Can mag pouches have velcro enclosures on them in IDPA?

How many 8 round mags would I need for my 1911?
Can I carry the mags in my back pocket?
Can I use my 10 round mags in my 1911?

Will my Hi-Cap beretta 92 work for IDPA? Will 2-15 round mags be enough?

Will My Glock 27 work for IDPA? How many ten round mags will I need (I have the +1 round mag extensions on them)?

If you were going to shoot an IDPA a match for the first time what would you shoot, a hi-cap Beretta 92, a Glock 27 with +1 mag extensions or a 1911 with 8 or 10 round mags.

As you can tell I've never shot an IDPA match before and I don't have a clue.

Thanks

IDPA.COM Is very informative

Hi Patrick.

It's a blast, you'll love it.

Any of your weaps are fine, but you can ONLY load to 10 rounds no matter what you bring.

I suggest you bring whatever you are most comfortable with. I shoot the G27 exclusively in IDPA, but you will probably see more full sized pistols than compacts, simply because they are easier to shoot fast.

All of the weapons you mention are shot every match where I shoot.

I have always been able to get by with 3 10 round mags, I think you could squeak by with 2 for a few matches.

Re your holster issues, go to IDPA.com, there is a very comprehensive rule book, listed holsters are ok, non listed are prohibited. Generally, if it's a concealment rig, you're ok, if it's a speed or competition rig, no go.

I think the ones you list are ok, and I think you COULD carry mags in your pocket, that's where I put my non full ones, anyway.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

Can mag pouches have velcro enclosures on them in IDPA?

Yes.

How many 8 round mags would I need for my 1911?

You can carry two in a mag pouch and one in the gun. There is no stages that require more than 18 rounds.

Can I carry the mags in my back pocket?

Yes. In addition to the one in the gun and two in the mag pouch.

Can I use my 10 round mags in my 1911?

Definitely NO. A gun with this magazine would not fit in the IDPA box.


Will my Hi-Cap beretta 92 work for IDPA? Will 2-15 round mags be enough?

You can use 15 round mags, but you can only load 10 rounds in it.

Will My Glock 27 work for IDPA?

Yes.

How many ten round mags will I need (I have the +1 round mag extensions on them)?

2 in mag pouch, and one in the gun. You can carry others in your pocket(s) if you wish. A stage maximum number of shots is 18. Most stages require 6 to 12.

If you were going to shoot an IDPA a match for the first time what would you shoot, a hi-cap Beretta 92, a Glock 27 with +1 mag extensions or a 1911 with 8 or 10 round mags.

You shoot whatever is more comfortable for you, what you know best.
