    The practical use of handguns, carbines, and precision rifles

  1. The practical is what people use in their daily lives. When it comes to handguns, hardly anything that is practical looks like what we use in USPSA. When was the last time you saw a 40 oz handgun in the holster of a private citizen or police officer? Or a holster that barely covers the trigger and not much else?
  2. WTF....Thank God I'm American. To the best of my knowledge there isn't a single US airline that charges for baggage because it is a firearm.
  3. It's a piece of blue plastic. Go do it. Who cares what others think? If the gym has a s#!t fit, go do it in a public park. You know, the ones you pay for?
  4. Can you tell us more? What part of Indiana? Are you interested in USPSA, IDPA, both?, can't tell the difference yet? Do you have any practical shooting experience (moving with a loaded handgun, drawing from a holster, etc)?
  5. Most likely bored and chose to shoot IDPA rather than mowing the lawn
  6. You must be going to the worst USPSA matches in the country then. I've shot both at several clubs and my experience has been the exact opposite in every aspect you mention.
  7. Have you looked in the rule book?
  8. That was very weird to read. Some of the principles are still recognizable, others (like their understanding of handgun lethality aka "power") comical.
  9. Hello from next door. When you say a shooter, what do you mean by that?
  10. Thank you. Source documents are invaluable.
  11. Why did the IPSC founders think it was a good idea to make our sport an international thing?
  12. Find some other type of competition which has a legit rulebook instead of people making up rules as they go.
  13. And no ammo, so it didn't really matter if the petty officer of the watch knew how to shoot or if the pistol even worked. The average joe on the street thinks everyone who wears a military or police uniform is some kind of steely eyed sharpshooter......LOL if they only knew.
  14. I agree, I think that's more myth than reality I'm not surprised. Trigger pullers are a minuscule percentage of the military as a whole, and an infinitesimally small percentage of the Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. I served in the Navy for 10 years (combination of service academy and active duty). Out of those ten years I think my total time involved in firearms training was less than 5 days.
  15. I meant competency with a firearm in a martial arts sense. Hunting and clay shooting don't qualify.
