    Default IDPA & USPSA Update

    Two weeks ago I shot an IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) classifier and moved up in class from Sharpshooter to Expert shooting a Glock 17. There are five classes; Novice, Marksman, Sharpshooter, Expert, and Master. I need to cut about 15 seconds off my total time and shoot the classifier clean to move up to Master.

    Last weekend I shot a USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) classifier for fun since I am not a member of USPSA. There were 44 shooters and I finished 5th overall. The guy who finished at first place was a Grandmaster class shooter. (He was FAST) The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place shooters were all shooting "race guns." I was shooting my Glock 17 in the Limited Class.

    All in all I'm shooting well and life is good.

    That is EXCELLENT SGT T!
    I shot my FIRST IDPA match last weekend. Obviously, I am not "classified", and the scores are not posted yet, but I feel like I did OK...I did have a couple of FTN's but I am going to blame that on being new to the competition.

    This coming Sunday, April 3rd, the Coastal Bend Shooters, www.cbshooters.com , will be hosting the annual Coastal Bend Challenge. We will have well over 100 shooters at the match. As a range officer/safety officer/volunteer I will actually shoot on Saturday, April 2nd. In recent matches I have done ok, but not up to the standards I would like. I hope that I will peak during the CBC and win my division. Winning the division in a IDPA major sanctioned match is a double-edged sword. If I do win my division, Stock Service Pistol/Expert, I will automatically be moved up to Master. Competing against other Masters is tough. I look forward to the challenge.

    I need to find one of these in my area. I would love to watch. Maybe even compete eventually. Now that I have a Glock I might look up the GSSF folks.

    Best of luck Sgt T!
