Have not shot in just over a year but have Gilmore inner/outer belts, Gilmore holster, Gilmore mag pouch, and some ballistic nylon mag pouches(so I don't have to take off my empty pouches when I don't need them or when they might get in the way). I use a customized .45 with Essex frame, 1911 slide and not a factory piece inside the gun.

Hi guys, - What part of the country do you shoot in? I reside in Texas and usually shoot a match every weekend at several clubs in the area. How active is IPSC in your area, how many clubs, etc.

I shoot Limited with a SV long dust cover gun using Safariland gear. A few weeks ago I installed one of those fiber optic front sights made by Dawson Precision. It works great and wish I hadn't waited so long to use one.

I'll start shooting some IPSC again once IDPA winds down for the year.
I'll use my carry gear; Glock 19 or 19 Long-slide, my own custom holster and mag pouches on a Galco belt.

Hi, There are 2 ipsc shooters in this household. Greg is a "C" class shooter. He shoots a p14 with a bianchi comp. holster. I shoot "D" class ladies. My gun of choice is a hk usp 45 with a helwig speed holster. We shoot in Reno and Carson City NV. We also shoot steelplate matches with various sheriff depts through out the state of NV. Have also traveled 4 hours for ipsc in Bishop Ca. and 8 hours to Ridgecrest (China Lake ca.). This household works and lives to shoot. We have also started my 8 year old daughter and next spring will shoot a glock 9mm in ipsc.

Thanks Wendy and Greg

Greg - I shot in the USPSA Area 1 Championship match that was held at your Reno club in June this year. It was a fun match. I hear it will be held there again next year and I plan to be there. It was nice getting out of the Texas heat and having a change of scenery with the snow capped mountains.

I shoot several clubs matches every month and this year hit many major matches, I just got back from the Open in Vegas. I use a heavily modified Glock 22 with Firepoint/Optima sight, Safariland 077 mag pouches and a CR Speed holster from Rescomp.

Matt K. - how was the Open Nats? There were a lot of people DQued. Must have been a lot of tight shots because there seemed to be quite a few penalities given to the shooters.

Were there any other shooters using Glocks at the match in either Open or Modified class?

I heard that there were two other glocks but I didnt see them. Most of the stages were cool witht he exception of 50 yard standards (stage 11) and this wierd El presidente thing (stage 1) otherwise it was a decent match, although the USPSA kinda screwed the competitors.

I shoot all over North Georgia, at least one match a week (shooting this much, I should be classed higher than C open and limited, oh well .

In limited, I shoot a stock Kimber, and for open, a Rusty Kidd built Caspian Hi-cap in .38 Super Comp.

Anyone interested in shooting in Georgia, let me know!

2000 is pretty serious membership anyway. The total membership at our host club is about 350. As I said 40 IPSC competitors is a lot for our monthly matches.Do you award trophies for your monthly matches or just do the year end ones?

Anyone shoot any matches over the Halloween weekend. As club president and match director I held a special Halloween match at our club on Saturday. We had some fun stages. All the steel was painted orange. Stages were named appropriately such as - "Dracula Hoses the Villagers", The Pumpkin Patch", and "Trick or Double Tap". We had plenty of candy available as well.

Dan C - I am originally from the Seatle area and every once in awhile visit the area. I have shot a few local matches up there. They have been at the Paul Bunyon club, Renton club, and the Shelton club.

I shoot IPSC using a Bianchi Limited Hemisphere holster with Safariland 771 mag pouches and belts. My current gun in competition is a Glock 35 with 4 hi cap mags capable of holding 19 rounds each. I shoot at least 3 matches a month and have been shooting since June.

Dan C. I'm from Portland, Oregon and also shoot a Glock 35 in competition. I've been a member of Tri County Gun Club in sherwood since April. Did you make it down for the Cascade Sectionals in Sept.? I took first Unclassified in Limited. Email me and let's talk Glock.
