View Full Version : How about an action shooting/competition forum?!?!?

07-07-2005, 10:57 PM
Some of us compete in the action shooting sports such as IDPA, USPSA, bowling pin, steel challenge, or 3-gun. I have read (and even competed with) some of the members here and it would be cool to have a forum for this topic. Just a thought...

Yeah, seems to be pretty popular here in the Bay Area.

In the Bay Area, there are several ranges that host action pistol such as Richmond, Chabot, and Diablo Action Pistol (USI). Some indoor ranges even host indoor action pistol shoots.

How about this, why don't we list down the action shooting sports that we are involved in. For me, here they are in order of enjoyment:

3-gun or long gun (tactical)
USPSA (open and limited)
IDPA (stock service)

Nothing official here....
I used to shoot Action Pistol at USI, then my son was born. Now that he's getting bigger, I think I can finally make it back to the ranges.

I'd like to be at USI for Diablo's action pistol match each month, but only seem to get out a 3-4 times a year.

They have one coming up on Sunday, but I can't make it.

A few weeks ago, we had a 2-gun match (rifle and shotgun) and it was cool! Lots of fixed up and tricked out AR-15s!

Lots of So. Cal. matches.

Maybe less restrictive, how about just a "Competition Forum" ?

I do the IPSC and IDPA thing, but also NRA Bulleye, and Metallic Silhouette.

I hope to try some SASS Cowboy shooting before the end of the year.

I would also like to try High Power rifle, and Sporting Clays someday. Maybe Black Powder too.

Do you think this forum would be mainly for anouncements or just plain discussion? I will seriously give it thought.

A General Compeition forum would be great for some of us newbs to ask about how to get started and equipment discussions.

Since I started this topic, here are my thoughts. This topic/forum will be for:

1. technical discussions of competition equipment (i.e. guns, reloading recipies, gear) & techniques (stance, draw, grip, stage breakdown, etc.)
2. announcements of matches (local or outside of Commiefornia)
3. general discussions of the various action shooting sports such as 3-gun, IPSC, IDPA, etc.

Other interested parties, please chime in! http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
