Bakerjd Posted August 19, 2022 Share Posted August 19, 2022 When and how did yall find out competitions, and the guns that go with them even existed? For me it was mostly by chance. I was fresh out of the Navy, basicly going to work and home and being bored since it was the winter in MI. I decided one evening to go to my local indoor range. They were starting up their winter indoor pistol league and the guy behind the counter mentioned it to me. I asked what it was and how to do it. I think it was like $10 and you were in for that week's match. They had I think 10 stings of fire with various ammount of rounds fired, low ready was the start. 2 small targets. It was a lot of fun. Probably a group of maybe 20 people normally showed up. I did that all winter and started seeing different guns that looked totally different then my little bone stock glock 19. So I started asking questions and learning about the different guns and matches. Decided to join USPSA before I ever even went to my first match or practice. I looked up the local clubs around me and emailed them to see about going to a match. Ended up doing some practice sessions with one club and then going to matches. Before all this my total experience with guns was what I got in the Navy. So I knew of the M9, M4, pump shotguns, and M240B. I was ships security forces for a little over a year so I did have some experience moving and shooting from classes for that but nothing close to USPSA. Looking forward to hearing some others experiences. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
