View Full Version : Any IPSC Shooters?

Anyone shoot IPSC on this board? Shot any matches lately. What kind of gear do you have.

Aussie here with both hands up waiting for "shooter are you ready". Safariland belt and mag holders, Gilmore Speed Leader holster and a rompin' stompin' Stock P-16 with four 16rnd mags. BEEEP.....HS

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.

October 26, 1998, 10:35 AM
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.

Hi- I shoot an IPSC match now and then. Current gun is a P14, Safariland gear.

October 30, 1998, 07:59 AM
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 http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/smile.gif.

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!

My wife and I shoot in the Seattle area. My wife shoots a Glock 24 and I shoot a model 22 or 35. We both have Safariland belts and holsters.

Congrats, HS. Did you tell the loosers that you learned how to shoot on TFL? http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/wink.gif

October 31, 1998, 04:59 PM
HS-tell me about presentation night, I'm interested in how awards are given in down under IPSC matches.

October 31, 1998, 05:28 PM
Well there were a LOT of trophies because we've got over 2000 members ! 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners all came up together. Fastest everything got a trophy - IPSC, Target comp- Centrefire & Rimfire, Western Action, Bowling Pin - 10 pin & Rapid fire, Pocket Pistol, Woodchop,Top Junior etc. It was a Long list...grin.

October 31, 1998, 05:52 PM
2000!!!!!!!!!!!!Holy S*********!!! If I can get 40 at our monthly match I feel fortunate.

November 2, 1998, 04:03 AM
Motorep, you misunderstood me ! Over 2000 members in total ! About 20 are IPSC shooters, gives ME a better chance of winning !...grin http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/wink.gif 150 approx. turned out for annual trophy/christmas party. At $35/ head it may have put some of them off....HS

November 2, 1998, 08:39 AM
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?

November 2, 1998, 02:11 PM
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.

November 3, 1998, 07:11 AM
Motorep, 1st place MEDALS are given out every month with 2nd and 3rd "snot rag" ribbons. Got enough sr's to make a complete hankerchief myself !...HS

November 4, 1998, 11:02 PM
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.

November 4, 1998, 11:08 PM
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.

November 12, 1998, 04:40 PM
Hello From Alabama!
I shoot at the FOP Range in Pleasant Grove just outside of Birmingham, the nicest IPSC range in the State.

My hardware consist of custom made state-of-the-art 38 Super STI with Holosite made by Joe Campiere of Campiere-Customs.com a great guy and master class shooter. Safariland leather, holster, magpouches. Club High-Lady 1997.

November 24, 1998, 11:09 PM
Great thread!
Another IPSC shooter from Colorado -- I shoot with Motorep when he allows mere mortals in the berm with him.

I'm fairly new to the IPSC game but have gotten pretty hooked. Limited: P14 that doesn't look very stock anymore. "Dark Side": .38 Super SVI with Hybricomp and C-more.

Like some of the other posts, we've got six active IPSC clubs w/in driving distance of Denver -- a match (or two) each weekend. Not quite like Phoenix but enough to cause problems on the homefront.

Dan C: You mentioned that you are using the G22 and G35 - I'm at present trying to decide which of these to buy for IPSC. At the moment I'm leaning towards the G22. How do they measure up, in your opinion?

To answer the original post, at the moment I use an USP9F and an Uncle Mikes Sidekick belt holster for IPSC. Not terribly competitive I know but I only do it for fun. Anyway now isn't a great time of the year for IPSC-ing becase the hot cases melt the snow just well enough to hide themselves completely...

The Glock 35, IMHO, is a better gun for competition. It has the 3.5# Trigger and extended mag release from the factory. You would have to add those yourself on the 22, which would even out the cost between them. An added benefit is that the 35 has just a bit more recoil absorbing weight to it, and a longer barrel. There are a couple of other Glock shooters on this list that I bet would love to share their opinions on this. Hey Redwing Dave...
