IDPA Shoot 11/1/15 Central Florida Gun & Pistol Club

2 11 2015

IDPA at the Central Florida Gun & Pistol Club today. Up to this point, I have not been in a squad with had any people who were “difficult”… Also, I have been advised now that my holster “does not qualify” that my mag holder does not qualify, and the duty belt that I use also does not qualify. Also was told that you can carry extra magazine (above the 3 allowed) in your back pocket, but not in the magazine pouches that you carry on your belt.

This tells me that there is A LOT of different interpretations of IDPA rules and what is and is not allowed. I am going to find a higher ranking IDPA official, and get some straight answers about some of the things that I was told today. Seems that everybody is an expert in some capacity and they certainly want to show it.

On the upside, I got to spend some time with my best friend from high school, Dave, who I have not seen in a very long time. Turns out, he is also a 2nd Amendment believer, and found the IDPA experience to be a good one. There was some negativity with people on the squad that we were assigned to, so I want to get him to a Flagler Gun club shoot, where it is very positive, especially for people new to IDPA, so he can see how much fun it can be.

Check out the video at about 2:oo or so minutes, the Safety officer lets a couple of guys “have it” that she had a problem with earlier. Yes, they did make a mistake, but she let them “have it” more so that it should have been. Guess being on video was not a big deal for this person.

Also, still working out the “bugs” with the camera. For most of the match, the camera was pointing too low, should be more upright, forward. I also used an external microphone, that really did not help much. From looking at the quality of the audio, it appears that it made the audio worse. So we will go back to standard camera microphone next match. Might also move the camera from my hat to my headphones, to eliminate the sag on the bill of my cap.

NOW to the video… Don’t forget to “like the video, and subscribe to my channel”. Still looking for a sponsor to cover the cost of ammo & gas for travel. I have some “leads”, coming soon…

TWO DAYS IN A ROW!!! Yeah for me…

Thanks to the patience and understanding of my beautiful wife Michelle Woodin for her understanding. I got to attend & shoot 2 IDPA matches this weekend, I need more ammo (want to sponsor me?)

Just $25 per month & I will put your logo, business name or website address on my cover garment to wear at all the competitions that I go to. and to get my range cart up and running so I don’t have to carry my stuff from place to place.

SIG PRO 2022 performed flawlessly AGAIN.. LOVE that gun! With the stainless guide rod, she performs each and every shot with no problems whatsoever. Even without the sight on the front, I was “point & shoot” and it handled just fine, with good accuracy, even at 25 yards. (Look for stage 3 in the video)

I am also liking the new GoPro setup on my hat, a little heavy but since I moved it from the front of the bill to closer to the head, it is not as noticeable. Used more than one battery today which was weird, but no malfunctions, or issues with the GoPro. Thinking about a drone to get some different footage during the shoots (if allowed).

Here is the video from today, enjoy!
