They Do Sometimes Bite

Joe Huffman seems to have had the IPSC stage from hell this weekend, and got bitten by his 1911, which malfunctioned.  When I shoot silhouette, I use a Ruger Mk.III.  Holding taco, you bring the pistol in close for a more stable position.  I have to be careful not to hold too close, or the slide comes back and punches me in the nose.  That’s about the worst I’ve ever gotten in competition.

    sure would love to find the time and opportunity to get involved in competitve shooting. Anyone know where they do that within driving range in Northern Virginia (and at times someone who has a job – a job in DC which requires me to stop at home on the way to the match to grab my guns – can make it . . . ie: dont start the fucking match at 4:30 on a thursday afternoon)

    Go to the UPSA website. On the right-hand side of the page near the top is a “Club Finder” tool.

    Use this link for finding a Steel Challenge club.

    Use this link for finding an IPDA club.

    Use this link for finding a GSSF match.

    Rifle competition is a little harder to find but talk to your local gun club and I’m sure someone can help you find something.

    USPA – Nearest Club – 45 miles in one direction (with worse traffic) or 73 miles in the other

    Steel – 65 miles

    IDPA – actually has options nearby. Thanks!
