JimmyZip Posted January 20, 2008 Share Posted January 20, 2008 When I was 11 and finally talked my Dad into letting me buy his .38 S&W off him to shoot the 1st Sunday practical matches, things were different. It was IPSC, not USPSA or IDPA. Most stages at most matches ran six to twelve rounds, occasionally more depending on the person setting it up. Reloads were after six if he liked revos, seven if he liked 1911's and all of those with CZ's and BHP's were the devil, minor, or hi-cap freaks! You think this sport is somewhat obscure now? Jeeze! This was 1980, when I stopped competing on a regular basis in 89 I think I still hadn't heard of USPSA. Well now I'm a member, but wanted to know what happened in those years! I feel like I just woke up from Rumplestilkins nap and the world has passed me by. Where and why were USPSA and IDPA created? ( please be as unpolitical as possible) Is there still a Second Chance bowling pin shoot? Anyway, if there is an old timer who's been around fron the beginning and couild shed some light on this I would sure be appreciative.
