    Question IDPA @ Wilkes-Barre Rifle Pistol Club

    Anyone shoot IDPA at WBRPC?

    I'd like to do it. I've never shot competitively before and am worried about looking like an idiot.
    I also have some questions about the courses of fire they use and how much ammo I am going to need.

    Thanks

    Does anyone know the number for 9-1-1?

    I don't belong to the club, but I've been meaning to try and get into IDPA. I believe they usually shoot on Saturday's, which was a problem for me last year due to work.

    This year, while it appears I will have most Saturday's off, I have bridal showers, weddings and agility training for my dog. I'm hoping to make a concerted effort and try again for this year.

    I wouldn't worry about looking like a fool, from all that I have read the only thing anyone cares about is that you can handle your firearm safely. All my shooting experience is pretty much LEO based, so I'm sure I will feel out of sorts trying to get used to how IDPA is run.

    i plan on shooting next saturday and have never done it before either. I take it that you can sign up for IDPA membership the day of the event? From what I have read you need 3 mags and 100rnds of ammo.

    deepblue, I take it you were the other guy with me and mike in our group? Sorry Im terrible with names!
    steve, I thought for sure i would meet you there! Maybe next time. I contemplated shooting my G26 but went with the G19 this time as I have years of shooting time with it and only a few outtings with the 26. Btw, I also just purchased an M4...see you at suscon or at the next IDPA. And for being my first time out I think I did relatively well. But for sure it was fun...much better then randomly shooting 50yd targets at suscon lol.
