Where around the 'burgh are there matches? I travel up to there and might be able to make it sometime.


Colonial Shooting Academy. I believe there is a match 1/7. They have one every other Wed. Check their web site to be sure of the date. One of their regulars said he is pretty sure about the 7th. Nice range. Cleaner than some cafes I've been in.

I started shooting IDPA a few months ago in KY. Two clubs that hold matches are reasonably close, so I shoot two matches a month. I shoot either a Springfield XD9 or a S&W Model 15 .38 Special, depending on how I feel that day :wink:

Shooting a revolver is a lot of fun! I use my S&W 10 4" pencil barrel sometimes.

I have been shooting IDPA for about 9 years now. I started with the bottom loaders but now almost exclusively run a 4" model 15 smith.
It sure is fun beating the tactical tupperware with a revolver.

Pistol competition kind of has its own set of problems in Canada doesn't it?

I've shot IDPA since the late 90's, but not always regularly (life gets too busy and my free time or spare money go away), so I come and go.
I shot CDP back when CDP power level was 177,000
CDP with either my 1911's or my BUG
ESP (with a single action single stack 9mmP)
SSP (with my BUG (my BUG can be run DA/SA or SAO))
and Back Up Gun (BUG).

Love it, miss it, shoot it when I can, as well as 3-gun.
