Getting Started in IPSC or IDPA Shooting Sports
Here are a couple of videos I made using the ContourROAM Hands-free HD Camcorder. Check them out for more info and some really cool first person shooting footage.
The second biggest question I get is, "What kind of gun do I need to get?" My standard response to this is, "what ever gun you have will do fine, the most important thing is get out and try the sport". Once you shoot a few matches, you may decide that you may want to upgrade your gun based on your experiences and the advice you get from other shooters. Not too mention seeing all the cool guns the other guys have. But do not feel you need to spend tons of money on a new gun to get started. Here is a few things that you will need: 1) A psitol of 9mm/38 special or larger caliber 2) Holster that covers the trigger of your pistol 3) At least 3 magazines 4) magazine pouches are nice, but not required 5) Eye and Ear Protection 6) An attitude to have fun.
