    We haven't had a good IDPA discussion in a while .
    Anyway ,I'm thinking about a different weapon system for next year.Something in 40 or 9,that can be used in SSP.

    What are the more popular choices for this division?

    Any pro/con arguments?

    Sig has a stainless P226 in 9mm that looks promising - but I rarely see Sigs in any of our local events.

    Until that day,
    Mark P.

    almost all the SSP guys at the matches I've been to are running a 9mm Glock .. one guy has a Sig 226, and another guy shoots at CZ 75B .. actually now that I think about it .. a couple guys are shooting Sigs (mostly 226s I beleive) ..

    probbaly either a 226 or Glock would be your best bet ..

    Cz/S&W/Sig. That any way is what I would do. Preference towards the CZ, but would take the best deal I could get between the three.

    The Beretta 92 seems to be a popular choice in my parts lately....

    Hi Mark:

    I have two friends that recently purchased the Sig you are referring to in stainless steel. I have shot one of them, extremely accurate, very nice gun. My friend is also a premier gunsmith and has already come up with a very sweet trigger job for it.....with excellent reset. If you want more info about the gunsmithing job, send me a private e-mail and I will give you his address.

    If it's a 9mm one then SSP (Stock Service Pistol), that is as long as no modifications are done to it .. other than change of sights, and/or grip

    if it's the .45 flavor than it would be CDP (Custom Defensive Pistol)

    if it's a .380 you can't use it .. only 9mm and up are legal for IDPA

    not legal .. and why on earth would you want to use that POS :)

    (I hate Kel-Tec)

    P-7 is ESP, period. LGB pg 11.

    I have seen some decocked USPs in SSP and Walther 99.

    MarkP,

    I've used the SIG 225, 229 (in 9mm), and Beretta 92G in SSP class and done fairly well. I've seen folks use the 226 and 228, also. And I've also seen S&W's of various models where the users have done well.

    Pro arguments include follow up shots in single action mode.

    Con arguments include first shots in double action mode and less than 10 in the mag for the 225 shooter.

    However, if you're proficient with your pistol of choice you'll do well in the SSP class of any IDPA match.

    SpcStn.

    Most of the gamers shoot a Glock 34/35. However, I use a Kahr K9, stock with nightsights and my normal carry rig and seem to do rather well in SSP. The Kahr is hyper-accurate, has a good trigger and points like an extention of my arm. The downside is it only holds 8rds, which sucks on some stages, and holster choices are limited. In 5 matches I have only seen one other person shooting a Kahr, for some reason it's just not on the radar.

    I use a G23 and load with VV 320/180gr for a PF just over 125, I do fine and see no reason to change to a 34/35. Those that have shot my gun say it has less recoil than a G34.

    Hi LANCE
    I shoot a Glock 34 and 35 and don't consider myself a gamer ha but I do consider myself a connasuir (not spelled correctly)ha of very fine weapons and that is why I shoot them. I also shoot a 17 and a 19 and honestly do pretty well with all of them.

    I am shooting a CZ 75B but the 85 Combat would be a great gun for a few dollars more. I seem to do ok with the CZ in IDPA and USPSA.

    The G23 works for me. Also use it in ESP. It does kick a little more than a 9 though.

    MarkP,

    Forget about the S&W auto for IDPA,the mag disconnect is a pain in the keyster when not being able to drop the hammer without a mag in the well.

    Disconnect it,after shooting a stage the shooter(per procedure) must remove the mag and drop the hammer before holstering.
