Set me up with what you recommend. I will then evaluate whats fits me.
Any sites dedicaied to IPSC shpooting?

I advise starting off cheap. Buy a Glock in 9mm, some open mag pouches, and 5 magazines.

You will shoot in production, where 9mm's aren't penalized. If you like it, you can move up to a .40 calibre 1911 Para-Ordnance or STI with a 20 round magazine.

One site you might try is www.idpa.com.
It is a fun day of shooting.

SS is right - if your just getting started in run and gun - take a stab at it in limited 10. Ohterwise, IPSC guns are built. Find a good IPSC smith (yes there is a difference between a general smith, bullseye smith, and an IPSC smith - best to find one that is an active competitor too). .40 S&W is the answer, STI or Para is the platform.

Shoot and hide (IDPA) - read the rules before you dump a ton of cash into an exotic - it may not be legal. Basically, shoot and hide is a "would I actually have this on me on the street" deal.

I started with the 1911 single stack, 45 acp. Then about '91 I went 38 Super in the single stack (blue gun). A few yr ago I bought an Infinity slide, Nowlin barrel, and had a 5" upper made for a single stack match.

I have been using a SV framed 38 Super, Caspian slide, wilson goodies, C-More since maybe late '95. This is my current gun--I hold a "B-Open" card, OPEN Class: B Current Pct: 62.963 High Percent: 64.545 .

Refer to www.uspsa.org, or to this page <home.columbus.rr.com/jmaass/pcs_links.htm>, Jeff has info the the local club page links to so you can get some info.

Try this site for lots of IPSC information.

G22, high caps, 3.5 lb disconnector, and night sights will make a nice IPSC limited gun.
Safariland makes a nice belt, I like the 017 holster. Go cheap at first. Once you get in the game lots of deals come along...

I would look at a Glock 34. I'm not a huge Glock fan, and I've never even owned one, but I've seen some amazing shit done with Glock 34s by people who won't shoot anything else. For the money I think it would be an excellent place to start.


Not a bad deal here for the whole setup.


Another option. Try getting a decent competition 1911 for under $600!

I can't believe I just wrote that, I love 1911s and I don't really care for Glocks. But seeing is believing.

I second gardenWeasel's choice. Those CZ's, and EAA Witness pistols are hard to beat for the money. AND, they perk right along. I've never had a stoppage with mine when shooting bowling pin matches.

I shoot with a Sig P220 .45 and have for about 1 year. It is not the gun to play the game with if you are into the GAME but it is what I carry. I stay in the 50% or above in the rankings. On some stages were the lack or rounds (8) and combat sights doesnt matter I shoot way up in the standings. I am getting better every match and it is a blast.

If I was going to purchase a gun it would be a STI

But it would mean a change to .40 and I am not ready for that. to spend the money or the time to set up eveything

I can tell you the guys that win my clubs matches are world class and the top 3 all shoot 38 super cal .


This is the club I shoot with go to the web site and go to the galley and look at the movies. If you havent seen these guys shoot you are missing something.

I found this for cheap. I gave $350 with two 17 rounders. It has been used a lot but it shoots well and I think it will be a start.

You can use that L model for USPSA Limited, USPSA Limited 10 and both USPSA and IPSC Open.

BATMAN has referred you to an auction of mine:

I've got a Glock 34 (excellent condition), a Safariland 007 speed holster, a Safariland 079 double mag pouch, a Safariland belt, a BRAND NEW unused preban Glock factory hi-cap mag w/Grams+4 basepad (22 round capacity), Glock 10 rd magazine. Everything but the pistol is brand new. The pistol is in such perfect condition that if I wasn't such an honest guy I could lie to you and tell you it was new and you'd never know the difference.

I want $675 for it all, that is about $200 less that retail for this stuff. I am a licensed dealer and will ship it free of charge (since you are an AR15.com guy!) to a licensed dealer of your choice. Just get a few more mags and you'll be good to go for IPSC. Holler at me if you're interested.

Thanks! Paul

I've got the almost the same setup as Arkansas_Rocketman is selling. Its worked well for me in limited competition. Fast and no-nonsense, that rig is the one to have. I've got a G22 rather than the G34 as I bought mine pre-G34 (showing my age). Pretty hard to go wrong with that setup.
