3.5.4 At no time should a shooter stand directly in a window or port to engage targets. Shooters must slice the pie around the edge of the window or port.

I think your rage post is because you got a procedural on that stage and didn't win 3rd sharpshooter.

Why IDPA is bullshit!
Because it's run by women. When women run sporting events they become social events and the competitive nature of the event becomes a secondary concern.
Just look at the last few IDPA magazines and compare it to the USPSA mag. One mag is bent towards competition and the other had black and white glamour shot pictures of "important" women in shooting.
In other shooting sports if you're ultra competitive you're rewarded and admired, in IDPA you get a procedural.

Nobody is going to point out that the OP is a dipshit for pointing out her failure to follow rules he doesn't know?

One of the beefs I hear about USPSA matches is that they lack the social aspect of IDPA.  Perhaps this is a local issue, but I can see the point.

 

I enjoy both the competitive and social aspects.  But mostly I enjoy improving my skills then putting them to the test, and the test is more fun in social yet competitive environment.

hes not obese hes tactically large. in the coming nuclear apocalypse he will have stores of nutrients to rely on camel style while all the weak and frail gamers die off and he takes their wives to be his harem. he will be a post apocalypse warlord with his never fail reliable glock 21 - what do you have to get you through a situation like that? a tanfaglio and a shooting jersey?

 

No doubt he's going to look like Lord Humungus after all that fat melts away.

What? My only experience with IDPA is our local matches and one state level match, but in general, there is exactly the same social aspect. You catch up with your friends while you're setting up, you chat and share strategy and observations in between taping/resetting/visualizing, and you chat and socialize during teardown.

 

If anything, IDPA seems *less* social, because there are are more fat know-it-alls who don't practice there, and I don't enjoy socializing with people like that. There are still plenty of nice interesting folk tho.

I thought the rules were confusing, and now I know why.

Humongous and Wez were great villains, I loved it.

 

I was curious what kind of not-very-scary face was hidden behind the steel hockey mask.  It seems a little impractical.  

 

Do you suppose Humongous ate and drank through a straw, or did he have to take it off and go hide in his tent so that he wouldn't lose his street cred?
