    If you have shot IPSC, IDPA should not be a problem.

    If anyone of us are armscor gun club members, we can have stages made for our selves doing IDPA style shooting. We can have a match of our own and winner buys the softdrinks after.

    Went to the range today but no BOG showed up for practice, ended up doing my own stuff.

    WHOAH!!!!!! i never knew there would be a filipino fourm like this..and i have been a member of Smith&wessonforum, thefiringline forum and thehighroadfoum.

    [does anyone know of any "practical shooting for dummies" beginner courses, preferably IDPA? sa armscor meron daw?]

    Being a member since last July, 06, i could say that Yep! there is.

    just look for Gina at Armscor Marikina. I was told that there is a certain IDPA trainer which holds saturday&Sunday classes but only to a group of no more than 6? 7? the number im not really sure of. Most members are businessmen, lawyers, etc.

    Let me know if your in. I sure would like to train also.

    Aside from the "every-now&then" set ups for IPSC/IDPA etc courses, you can actually have a course done using ready made ones that were just used the previous weeks or days.

    I suggest that you keep track of the days where IPSC/IDPA etc shoot fest are held, then have them (range officers) reserve the mock-ups for your scheduled day shoot. If i'm not mistaken, it costs around Php200 only to have them set it up.

    Hope this helps!

    Happy & safe Shooting to All!

    Most IPSC shooters (like me) committed mistakes when shooting IDPA. They were doing the speed reload instead of tactical reload most of the time, and they shoot the target boards without covering their bodies...:supergrin:
