How many of you have ever tried the 22 Silhouette?
I mean we are talking about shooting 22's right? I always thought I was pretty good with a 22. I really talked a big game my first time out to shoot the match. Then I tried it!
NOT as easy as you would think, but twice the fun! If you like plinking with a .22, then this game is for you. Come on out and give it a try. You won't be disappointed!
All you need to compete is a .22LR pistol or rifle with or without a scope and 40 rounds of ammo. Match is shot from the standing position at 4 rows of ten targets each row. You only get one shot at each target and you have to knock it over to count. The rows are at 50, 60, 77 and 100 meters. The chicken silhouettes are at 50, the pigs at 60, the turkeys at 77 and the rams at 100. It is great fun and is a fantastic way to tune up for squirrel season - Lisa F.

Ladies listen up!!
Have you ever wondered what it is about IDPA that your husband loves?
Come shoot the Ladies Defensive Pistol Match and you will see.
It is Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
Registering the IDPA shooters was all I have ever done. I didn't want to get out there with the guys and try it out to see if I liked it or not. The Ladies Defensive Pistol is the same scenario except it's for the ladies only. It was really fun to get out there and shoot with the ladies and there was no pressure at all. All the stages were simple and the Safety Officers were very, very helpful. I brought my own ammo boy with me and he kept my mags topped off while I shot.
If you have not tried this yet, the next one is scheduled for June 22, 2013.
I say try it at least once. I did and I am sure I will do it again - Lisa F.
