I thoroughly enjoyed my first IDPA this last Saturday. I have been shooting a lot at home on my makeshift range with confidence but didn't expect the nerves to get me the way they did on Saturday morning. To say it was humbling would be an understatement. I think i shot OK for a first timer but quite frankly , i don't remember seeing my front sight even once! It was totally instinctive because i had and incredible adrenaline rush at the buzzer on each stage. I AM HOOKED!!! I actually outscored many sharp shooters and 2 expert level competitors with my same weapon classification (SSP). Now i just need to shoot a classifying round to see where I really stand and which group I compete with. What an awesome event.
