    I was thinking in order to get us more involved for a great time as a group, we should go shooting together. We have tried this previously but only a small turnout plus it was freezing.

    The answer would be IDPA. We all talk about how we utilize our visit to the range, and quite frankly, I get bored from time to time just shooting at single targets without moving, drawing from holster, etc. I'm sure that some of you feel the same way, so why not get together and get competitive?

    Oh? You don't know where IDPA matches take place?

    I do. -----------> http://www.ncrr.net/ BAM!!!!! :celebrate

    Click on IDPA and voila, instant info! Now all we have to do is schedule some meet ups and boom, we all have a great time.



    And shame on youfor those of you who knew about this place, but yet didn't want to share the wealth.

    Please comment and share some ideas!

    I do IPSC once a month. Nothing (Gun Related) compares to the fun I/we have that day. Shooting at a stand still range has become a place to test a new gun before purchase and thats it.

    http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/VAIDPA/

    only problem that i have with ncrr is that their idpa is on wed and thurs. if you're looking for a weekend event, try out black creek in hanover (4 or 5 miles off I-295). 2nd saturday of every month. i should be out there the next 2 months.

    Just waiting for my next sidearm purchase.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Well, RPG's are out--what with mandatory seat-belt laws in VA and all.

    I'm thinking a Commander-size 1911, de-horned for carry. I'll order it when I'm ready; already got it picked out. I'm going to ask for a custom serial number:


    20 LEO 229 BAIT 07


    Below it, I'll have engraved: If you can read this, you have violated the 4th Amendment

    Thanks for the offer. I really want to use what would also be my primary carry sidearm.

    well if you're looking for a small 1911, may i suggest a Kimber Ultracarry? they're a little pricey, butworth it i think. a friend has one and he shoots lights out with that thing! and after seeing the problems hlh had at the range with his Colt, don't think i'll ever get one of those. it's pretty, but too many FTE for my liking as a defense pistol.

    Thanks for the info. Kimbers are on the short list.

    Sir Danbus,
    It would be great to go down to Hampton Roads and go through some ammo. Weekends would be best for me, but anything is possible with enough lead time on a date.

    No doubt a great time would be had by all.

    OK, I confess, I'm an NCRR member (maybe you overheard me at the Hickory Grill) and I have been WANTING to give it a try, just haven't done it yet....they have a Basic IDPA once a month, sort of a test the water thing -let's go!!
    Edit: where did all these boxes come from

    Blue Rigde Aresenal in Chantilliy has a monthly IDPA match,
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    If anyone's coming up from 64->81, let me know. I know some good places to eat in the 'burg. :P
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
