    Anyone know of any clubs doing IDPA in NW Alabama or NE Mississippi? I've kinda got the bug to try it, but frankly with the gas prices being like they are, I'm not going to be able to drive very far.

    Also, would my duty rig set-up be acceptable - Glock 22, MMC night sights, NY1/3.5 trigger, Surefire X200, Safariland 6280?

    I'm not sure about any locations near you, but in the past I shot a couple IDPA matches with almost the exact duty rig, only exception was I used a G34. Hope this helps.

    Found one for today, in Pontotoc, MS. A little over an hour's drive for me each way. I found out about a few more in reasonable range, one just above Tupelo, the one in Glen, and I think there's one in Sheffield, AL.

    Had a lot of fun, met some great people, and learned a few things I need to work on (and not just for IDPA, but for real). There were a couple of obvious "gamesters" there, I figure I'll let them do their thing and I'll do mine.

    The only negatives I've seen so far, are gas prices to go to a shoot, ammo costs if you don't reload (I do, but took some factory ammo today), and my dang wrist is hurting from firing so much ammo. Other than those, I think I'm hooked!
