    I am just curious, how many of WMD actually compete in IPSC and if so, which classes? I am looking at entering production once my Cat H license clears. While there are differences between USA and Aus firearms (we have a 10 round limit to magazines, 9mm or .38 limit on calibers unless shooting steel silhouttes(this allows up to .45) and minimum barrel length restrictions) the events themselves seem to be similar.

    If you are competing in IPSC what fire arm are you currently rocking and have you got any pics/videos from events you have been involved in?
     
  2. PM'd you about this.

    I was gonna say yes bc most people here just referto it as ipsc but it's uspsa here. :o

    although it's likely some here have competed using ipsc rules, I haven't.

    I shoot USPSA Production division with a Glock 17. USPSA is effectively the US IPSC Region, but has its own independent rule book. It is rare to see a true IPSC rules match in the US.

    I shot a IPSC match last year and the rules are kind of odd when you are used to shooting USPSA stuff.

    My G34 wasn't legal in production. You are only allowed to take one sight picture after the make ready command. I hate the turtle shell targets as I always seem to aim to high.

    If you are limited to ten rounds mags in aus the divisions are all probably limited by that in your country then.

    When I shoot USPSA I shoot a G34 in production and I'm B class.

    I am classified and shoot in every division in USPSA, currently hung up in Open division rite now. I'm also the MD for my club.

    I've got a few videos, take your pick...

    I don't shoot competitively, but I'm curious. Do you shoot each target twice because of the rules?

    I shoot a Glock 34 in Limited-C but I am probably going to move to Production soon now that I see that the Glockworx trigger is production legal.

    It really depends on how they designed the stage, because I've also designed/shot a stage that required more "hits" on paper. Otherwise it's "the best 2 hits" per paper, meaning you can shoot as much as you want, the best two hits will count towards your score. So generally, I "try" and only shoot at each target twice.

    Hope that helps.
