October 25th, 2008 is the Indiana State IDPA Championship. I’ll be shooting a qualifier sometime before that so that I’ll be eligible to compete in the match; I’ll be competing in the Enhanced Service Pistol division.
October 25th gives me about 2 months to practice everything that Todd Jarrett taught me at Blackwater, which means I’m going to be needing to shoot a lot of BBs downrange in the intervening 2 months to get ready for this. This will be my first “serious” level match since I shot in the NRA Collegiate Pistol Nationals about 7 years ago, and I’m very excited about running this match. I just need to get a 9mm 1911 and I’ll be all set.
I’ll also keep you guys posted with updates on my training regimen, which is actually going to include shooting literal BBs – I’m going to be competing in the Action Airsoft league, and they gun that comes with the kit is an excellent simulacrum of the pistol that I’ll be shooting for competition.
Check the offical Gun Nuts Radio Blog for updates on training progress and the matches I’ll shoot in the intervening times.
