I’ve gotten a couple of emails regarding my post on the IDPA match from people who seemed to have only read the “cons” section of that piece. I don’t want there to be any confusion on that point, so I’ll restate myself up here.
I had a lot of fun, and plan on going back next month. None of the things that I listed as “cons” were so bad as to turn me off, and in fact I’m going to be inviting a couple of friends to come along with me come September.
I also do not think that anything is wrong with IDPA rules as they currently stand. What I was trying to express was my frustration with the number of rules I had to remember. I am perfectly fine with tactical reloads and shooting targets in tactical sequence or tactical priority.
So, I’ll restate this one more time: I had a great time and I will go back – the range was nice, the people were friendly, and the courses of fire were both imaginative and challenging. Put all that together and it’s enough to get me to want to go back, and go back I shall.
