Shot my 2nd IDPA Match Saturday.

I discovered this Show last month just before my first match. I'm working my way through the episodes in this show, and it's been a huge help understanding the game.

I'm probably going to try USPSA as well since my local club hosts one of each every month.

Thanks a lot for making my entrance into the sport easier.

It's been very helpful, especially the Shooting your 1st IDPA match episode, I think that was around episode 20?

My original plan was to just spectate at the Sept match, but watching it the night before my first match gave me at least a general idea of what to expect, and I ended up shooting, and had a blast. Even though I shot like crap.

It's also come in handy for showing it to my interested but intimidated friends.

I have at least a couple planning to shoot a match, after watching that video.

It's probably been said before, but everyone thinking of shooting competition should watch these guys. I know I learned a lot and the videos were very helpful. I've since membered up and have been shooting both IPSC and IDPA.

Good stuff.

Episode 156 - Happy 3rd Anniversary
We made it. Three years of non-stop weekly episodes about competitive shooting. We wouldn't say it was all hunky dory but it has definitely been a fun experience. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all of you, our fans, viewers, supporters and sponsors. Without you, there would be no show and we wouldn't have built so many friendships.

Here's to another year of watching a bunch of guys talk about the sport that they love, and hope that you learn a thing or two along the way.

*CHEERS*
