I have not been there yet. I get to the Sac valley monthly match most if the time.

The best advice I can give for your first match is. Relax and have fun. Make your shots & don't worry about how fast your going.

Got it. I haven't run my sig yet. Now I know!

Don't "airgun", they are a bit picky about it

Well, there is a rule specifically prohibiting it...

Yeah, I figure the first go out i will be pretty darn slow. Gonna try to focus on making decent shots and smooth (if slow) reloads. Because my 239 only holds 8 rounds I will be forced to reload 3 times no matter what.

BTW what is "airgun"-ing? is that where you point your gun like you would shoot but don't intend to fire? Freaks people out (understandably so!)

"airguning" is when you go through the stage pretending you have a gun (if you did it with your gun in hand you would get DQ'd/sent home). You see it a lot in USPSA. IDPA considers it "gaming" the stage and some people get upset about it.

Rehearsing the stage using your hands to simulate target engagements and reloads. Rehearsals are a fundamental aspect of USPSA, but are pretty much disallowed in IDPA. As such, airgunning will get you a 3-second procedural penalty at an IDPA match if you are caught doing it.

Different games, different rules.

I should have said, "Don't do anything that looks like airgunning"

I got warned once for pointing out a feature of a stage to a friend with my finger...which is what I usually use to point with...and I've seen folks warned for counting targets/shots required for a stage
