Competition Shooting Discussion Group (2)

Robert Ray, IDPA: "IDPA founded in response to the rise of concealed carry around the country...IDPA is a sport...not tactical training; not a gun class...but it does use a lot of aspects of defense pistol training...big thing about IDPA is it allows CCW holders to get out there and get familiar with their guns, go out with a couple of boxes of ammunition and have a good time...IDPA is designed to level out the playing field as much as possible...66% of our members drive less than an hour to a maych; 77% of our members are also members of the local gun club...each of us have our own little Walter Mitty-esque fantasy we want to play out during a match...our survey shows that more than 82% of our memebrs have CCWs...hope to reach 15,000 members by the end of the year..."
