practical shotgun competitions?

I've really enjoyed shooting idpa with my handguns. I finally got a decent hd shotgun (mossberg 500). Is there any shotgun competition that is similar to idpa - practical, fun, appropriate for newbs who want just to learn and improve their skills? I've heard about IPSC shotgun comps but can't seem to find any close by (Atlanta). Ideas?
Thanks!

So depending on where you live...

And what you wanted to do...

Since you have no location listed. And I would assume you are looking for something "competition"...

3-gun would be the best bet. Also note that some clubs (IDPA) will have side matches on different guns. Some may be a BUG (back up gun), shotgun and/or rifle. Not formally a part of the match but a fun side shoot... typically not scored.

Just depends on your local club.

I added my location - Atlanta. As for what I want... I guess move and shoot training or competitions for hd weapons, especially shotguns. 3gun looks like a lot of fun, but I'm not aware of any regularly scheduled competitions around here.

so a starting point...

Here are several starting points for you.

1) IDPA http://idpa.com/clublist.asp?pick=GA
2) USPSA http://uspsa6.org/

Check out the ranges that the matches are held. Some may offer what you are looking for... either training or classes or practices... for HD shotgun.

Here's one:

Good luck!

Practical or action shotgun is a ton of fun. Unfortunately it takes a back seat to pistol and rifle competitions because nobody likes to reload shotguns. There is a big shotgun match in Minnesota this year. You should join us.
