    I had a great time today as well. Actually, I gave away 3 boxes of ammo and a hat.

    This is a really fun shoot. I hope more folks will keep coming. There were only 5 of us last month, so 8 was an improvement.

    Thanks for the tips and kind advice today.

    Had a great time Sunday afternoon, meet some great guys and had a good time. I was a little hesatant about showing up as moderately new shooter with my only knowledge of IDPA is having some type of concelment for your weapon but, everybody was very helpful and the event casual and safe. I don't remember the round count but it was in the 80 + range so we did get a lot of shooting in.

    The drive was not very long at all and I will put this on my monthly to-do list!

    Oh yeah, thanks to the Red River guys for the box of ammo, very nice and very unexpected.

    :thanku:

    That's the only way to learn this game is show up and play! I hope we can get more shooters to keep this alive, it would be a shame to let the only IDPA match in the area die for lack of attendance.

    We had 6 stages. Four were scenarios, two were standards.
    Stage 1 - 10 rds min. Scenario - Casino Parking Lot
    Stage 2 - 12 rds min. Scenario - Hotel Entry
    Stage 3 - 18 rds min. Scenario - Gun in the Truck
    Stage 4 - 5 rds min. Scenario - Dog Attack
    Stage 5 - 9 rds min. Standard (Triple Mozambique)
    Stage 6 - 18 rds min. Standard (Triple Bill Drill)

    I'm not familiar with these stages. I see times and minimum rounds required. Were they moving targets? Multiple targets? Shooting from cover? What did the shooter have to do?

    Thanks guy for working the match and posting the scores. Maybe if I would get my head lower on the pistol and actually look at that bump on the front end of my pistol I might have done better ;-)

    Really enjoyed the dog stage.

    I have to agree with this. We really need to make sure ranges stay open not only to support those that are trying to support us, but to have a place to hold matches as well. In other words it is to our benefit.

    The Firing Pin provides great service, has ammo and is easy to get to from the south and from OKC.

    I have always said it is the shooters that make the match and there are good safe shooters there that are very friendly. Give it a shot ;-) Pun intended ;-) I think you will enjoy it.

    S1 had you shooting from both sides of your mock truck at 5 threats. There were two no-shoots - one of which was swinging in front of three of the threats. Best 2 on target.

    S2 had you engaging 2 threats while moving to cover and your second firing position which was a window. Best 2 on target and 5 or 6 threats total/

    S3 was a combination of S1 & S2 except the start position was 4' from the first firing position and the pistol was laying on a table hot to simulate the oistol was under the truck seat. Again hte swinger was used with a NS swinging between 3 threats

    S4 was the dog you had 4 threats. The first 3 engaged simulated dogs running at you and the last target was upright as if hte dog was lunging at you. First 3 got 1 shot eaach and the 4th got one to the chest and 1 to the head. Neat fast stage.

    S5 was 3 threats that you had to perform a failure to stop drill on -limited

    S6 was 3 threats that you performed Bill Drills on. Your load out was 3 six round mags so you had to perform a mag changes.

    I could not make it this month, but I did stop by and meet Tom at the Firing Pin. I am planning on coming to the next one. When is the next shoot? First Sunday will be 4th of July.

    Man you are spot on when you stated the only way to learn is show up - much more fun that way also ;;-)

    Second the last too.
