    The new season is just around the corner. Who from OT shoots IDPA?
    I just got a new Blade-tech holster, a 15 rd mag, a double mag pouch and a holster belt... I'm stoked to do some shooting. :rl:

    Thinking about getting back into it and maybe some 3 gun and USPSA as well. 3gun gives me a reason to get another AR :)

    IDPA is open to any handgun that can be concealed properly and used in a defensive scheme.

    It's the International Defensive Pistol Association
    Check out www.idpa.com
    It deals with tactical shooting in real life scenarios.

    I'm in central PA... south of Altoona.

    decent write up... sound advice to help prevent newbies from being intimidated by the gamers.

    i see too many newbies who shoot once and never come back because of gamers. it's really too bad to see such a good idea slowly go to shit like IPSC has gone.
