If I had a nickle for every time somebody said that too me, the match would have been paid for. I knew to watch my sights, but something about that buzzer just scrambled my brain and erased years of training.

After shooting it, I realized that a mil-spec 1911 isn't an ideal gun for personal defense or competition unless you're planning on adding accessories as you go. I've already installed a Chip McCormick beavertail, and I'm planning on adding an extended safety, and possibly a Wilson Combat mag well.

Yeah, I'm hooked now. Our club does a match the first Saturday of every month. Hopefully, if my budget holds out, I'll be attending a match next month.

No doubt! I think it was the most intense shooting experience I've ever had in my life. I'm not quite sure if IDPA tops getting to shoot the .50BMG M2 machine gun...but it's pretty darn close.
