Not only was idpa invented by Bill Wilson. He OWNS it lock stock & barrel. He has the gold & he makes the rules. No committee, no polls, just his decisions.. IPDA was invented by Bill Wilson, an IPSC champion back in the day. Shoot both, see what you like.
+1.Personally if you find yourself shooting more than a couple of matches in either or both IDPA or USPSA then I'd think it only fair you support that organization by becoming a member.
And if you are close to any of the clubs you shoot at help as much as you can be it setup, teardown, helping with the scorekeeping at a match, pasting, etc. It's a ton of work for the people at the clubs to put on these matches.
Within about 60 miles or less I can shoot almost every weekend April - October an IDPA or USPSA match. Just wish my area had the weather to go year round.+1.
Leaving work early today to setup two stages for USPSA that I can reuse for 3-Gun the following week that I run.
In my area at least if you are willing to travel 1 hour you can shoot 3-4 matches month of IDPA and / or 3-4 matches a month of USPSA.
We shoot year round but in Jul-Sep it gets rough. If you don't pull your share helping your squad then sometimes we can't find your score sheet at the end. :whistling:Within about 60 miles or less I can shoot almost every weekend April - October an IDPA or USPSA match.

I'm heading to an IDPA SO class Saturday. Nothing frosts me more than a group of shooters who stand around BS'ing while the same people or SO's trek out each time to paste the targets.
