9mm1033- I live in Columbus. Where in Grove City are the matches held? Is it a private range?

I watched my first IDPA match the first weekend of this month. I can agree with what everyone above said, range masters and shooters alike were very friendly and had no problem with my barrage of questions during downtime. They gave me some valuable tips on gear and practice sessions they utilize to hone their skills. We had shooters there that were very good and quite a few others that took what seemed to be minutes to complete a course of fire.
I plan on competing for the first time next month..

My first match

I participated in my first IDPA match this weekend and had a great time. I was slow and had never practiced drawing from my holster, but the safety officers were patient and more than friendly. My advice is "Just Do It" You will have a great time and be glad you did.

So I tried it this weekend, shooting with the guys from Central Ohio and had a blast. It was frustrating having to do a tap & rack every stage because I didn't slam the mags home. But I came back with all my fingers and toes intact and will be going again
