Howdy, I'm new to the forum from Mason, OH. I am fairly active over at Beretta Forum with the same screen name. I went to one IDPA competition not to far from me and it was Cold as H*ll since it was the first one of the year, but I had a good time. I didn't make to any others this year. I guess it was a combination of life getting in the way, none of my friends are interested in getting into it with me, and cost of shooting that much ammo. The people at the competition I went to weren't particularly friendly or helpful, and dispite my attempts to start conversations with them it was very much the "old boys club" with the regulars only conversing with each other. I have started to reload so the cost issue isn't such a big deal since I have cut my ammo cost in half. I am interested in shooting USPSA Production, IDPA SSP, and eventually Multi-gun in Limited then Tactical. I am in the US Army reserves and by the Army standard I am an outstanding shooter, almost always qualifying Expert, but by our standards that puts me at a skill level just about the top end of average. Firearms are becoming more of an addiction than a hobby at this point. In the past 11 months I purchased a Beretta 96FS Inox, a Beretta 92FS Inox Compact w/rail, S&W M&P15, M1903A4(since sold), Kimber Ultra CDP II LG, Lee Loadmaster press and a boat load of stuff to go with it, a holster or 2 for every gun and tons of misc accessories. That's not counting what I convinced my fiance to buy for herself. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle but with winter closing in I expect to be spending more time at my local range, Point Blank. My hope is that from this forum I might get to know some competitors in my area that wouldn't mind taking me along to some competitions. I feel like information is very fragmented in this sport and it causes kind of an overwelming sensation when trying to enter the field without knowing anyone, so I am hoping I might end up getting a small amount of handholding.
