Sup Guys,

 

We were all a bit derpy when we started and more or less have swapped gats or run through various magpouches, holsters, and other things before we threw enough money at the problem for it to go away. I'd like to make a list on what equipment to buy (brand specific) so we can help people out if they want to get into USPSA/IDPA/SASS etc. Shooting can be a very expensive sport and the amount of gear options and hopefully this can become a sticky for noobs. This can even go division specific from a USPSA Open Rig to IDPA SSP rig.  

 

BEFORE YOU BUY SHIT

 

1. Figure out what shooting game you are going to play whether it be USPSA or IDPA, also look a the rules of the divisions.

 

2. Sure you can always shoot what you have but if you want to game it prepare to save some money not only on your rig but also practice supplies.

 

The GUN

 

Example: USPSA Production

Remember to read the rules of Production first.

For you striker fire peasants (or $1000 or less): Glock 17,34, XDM 5.25, M&P, GP6 (All 9mm suggested)

If you are uber serious and don't have to pay child support: CZ Shadow, Tanfoglio Stock II

 

The HOLSTER/POUCHES

 

Example: IDPA SSP

Get a quality holster (Not some Nylon shit from Wal-Mart or the Blackhawk Serpa....its not gamey enough)

If you want to play with the spirit of IDPA (IWB Holster) and not get killed on the street: Galco King Tuk or Crossbreed Supertuck

OWB (To game it): Blade Tech's IDPA Starter kit or Comp-Tac's IDPA legal paddle holster and mag pouches

 

This can also be extended to the BELT, SIGHTS, and Books (EX: RO'ing to Win)

 

Hopefully this can prevent people that want to get into the sport from getting discouraged from making foolish purchases. This is also a perfect opportunity to share with other shooters and gear queers to show what rigs you each personally use and promote experimentation. While everyone does things differently its worth exploring alternatives to see if they can aid in your improvement.

Open and spend as much as you can. The more machined holes in the gun the better!

There's already 19,000 threads on Enos on this topic. Use the fucking search function. The only thing "sticky" on Doodie is Truk's palms. Somebody get him a Kleenex already.

Then why not make 1 instead of 19,000 plus the wording could be sweet. (Ex: So you want to shoot Open, these are what you should be looking at and this IS the fucking list).

Says who? There is no fucking list. We just went through 39 pages on Akai SuperGuns that went nowhere. There's Bens cheerleaders (nuthuggers) who all want Tanfos, Origami is Glocksucker, I'm an STI guy, it never fucking ends. Go to the Pro Shop and buy that shit. It's the best and the only gear you need to win.

These "Hey guys, what's the best XYZ?" always go so well and end up with a nice concise list that everyone agrees on. I predict the usual (if not more) amount of herp and derp.

 

I have a better idea. Why don't you make the list and then everyone can come in, disagree and tell you how stupid you are?

Since there is now 8 shot minor in revo i dont think there is very much to discuss. USPSA is now a 1 gun game.
