Well there are those that would say IPSC is anything but practical. IPSC is, in my opinion, more fun. Fun as in higher round counts, bigger stages, more runnin' and gunnin'. IDPA is geared more toward the "tactical mindset". More use of cover and the like. I find IDPA helps my IPSC scores in that I seem to shoot more A's after shooting IDPA. It makes me focus on the center of the target better. There is nothing like running downrange with a racegun, loaded with 29 rounds of .38Super, blasting targets as you go!

As you might have guessed by the screen name I shoot IPSC matches, both pistol and three gun. Right now tactical three gun has my attention. Have also done a few IDPA matches several years ago. If you want to shoot alot go with IPSC, the round count is much higher. IDPA is fun but who wants to go to a 35 round match when the typical IPSC match is 100? I've never understood the damage to the IDPA "training value" of more shooting even though we all know real world encounters are seldom more than a few rounds. For me it basically comes down to this, it's all a game for the most part, I shoot to have fun. If I want training I attend a professionally taught class.

NRA and CMP High Power Service Rifle. 200, 300,600 and an occasional 1000 yard match. Want to get my AR10 dialed in for 1000 yard matches. Only "competed" with it once so far (practice match).

Hey Rich. One three gun tip, when you step into the box with your AR repeat this over and over in your head: HOSE, HOSE, HOSE, HOSE!!! Seriously, let us know how you like it. I bet you'll be an addict after one match. Hope you have fun!

used to shoot IPSC.......now shoot IDPA combat and action rifle at our local club. IPSC run and gun is fun but IDPA is much more practical.

I shoot IHMSA (International Handgun Metallic Silhouette) in big-bore, field pistol, and .22 classes. In fact, I'm the match director for the .22 matches. Lots of fun, but nowhere near as much action as IDPA or IPSC. Then again, those guys aren't trying to hit targets 100 and 200 meters away either.

IPSC since 1989, now "B-open", shoot 11" AR in the sidematch IF somebody decides to run one. Use a HI-CAP SV in 38 Super similar to the one pictured earlier in the thread. I love the smell of VV 3N37 in the morning.

IPSC/USPSA, 3-gun(ipsc&tac), revolver(www.icore.org), steel-plates, and I want to try IDPA. I enjoy the ipsc type matches best because it is just pure shooting. I would like to get back to shooting steel plates more as I really enjoy the reactive targets. From what I hear most of the IDPA matches in this area (B'ham AL) run 48-70 rounds max. I shoot a PARA 14-45 Limited, 16" Bushmaster, Rem 1100, Glock 17,S&W 686

Since both the Marine and Army teams shoot AR's, you don't mind if I stay way away from you in the bars around Port Clinton, do you? Or to put it another way, I may be a Sallie, but I'm also a winner. How does it feel to get beat by a Sallie?

First off, you won't see me in a bar. Second, didn't the AR become the mainstay of the competetive shooting teams during the Clinton years???? (Probably not, but it was fun to post) Third, what can ya say of some who shoots firearm known even by its fans as a "mouse gun?" Lastly, this was all posted in fun. Hope you didn't miss the humor of it. Actually, i'm MORE surprised by all the handgun comptetitors out there.
