Shot my first USPSA/IPSC match at my local range yesterday. It was one of those things I've always wanted to. My son has been doing it for over a year so it was my turn to give it a go.

I used my trusty old 1911 and some 10rnd Wilson mags. I was shooting limited 10 class. I borrowed a belt and holster from a buddy until I get my own rig.

Since i'm new to the sport I was still kinda slow. Out of four stages I had two that were pretty
good and two that kinda sucked. But it's all good and I'm sure I'll get better.

I strongly recomend you try it. Most of us already have a pistol that could be used to shoot a match. Throw some gear together and give it a go!

For info try www.uspsa.org If that's not right I'm sure someone here will know the right web addr.

Shoot safe,

I had a much higher opinion of my skills before I started to shoot competitively. It can make you humble. At this point I shoot ICORE and steel. I'll probably get to my first IPSC match this summer. Congrats on taking the plunge!

Nothing better to tune up your skills than competition.

Due to the single stack 1911, I'm reloading all the time.

My main goal is to just become a better shooter with my CHL gun and to have fun.
