IDPA not training? Idpa competition is training! Much more so than Joe the Plumber gets, he just puts gun in holster, takes it off at night! What IDPA does, is give you draw and fire training! If you use all the same components, in all the same places, concealed by the same cover, as you did going to the match, and going home, as you shoot the match, and as I did at my last match, stop for breakfast. IDPA or defense of life, is based on launching a bullet at a target, cardboard, or criminal, no difference. Power factor? Must knock down a pepper popper, 147g copper jacketed reload ($200.00 a thousand) or exceed 1000 fps, with a JHP, of modern design capable of creating the desired affect, stopping, when fired at a human adversary, if enough hit the person, in the right place. As much as is possible with any piece of equipment, work first time all the time! The holster used should be same for CCW as the match! Now that is a lot of mating of components, suitable for both endeavors, and used in my case twice a month, with the expenditure of around 400 rounds, both carry and match guns are Glock 19s. Truglow sights, factory triggers, Glock extended slide lock levers. The pistol is always the same, in the same holster, in the same place, spare magazine also, same place same pouch, same size, Glock 17 magazines, for match or carry. And last but not least, same cover garment. Not training? Let the dissent begin! __________________ Be Safe.
