Default IDPA Shooters?

Just joined IDPA. Shot first match on Sunday. Never tried anything like that before, so my score reflected that. Nicked one non-threat target , but only one. Managed to get zero procedurals and zero fail-to-neutralize. Was pretty happy about that.

Need to slow down. Need to shift focus back to the front sight after transitions. Need to work on reloads.

Seemed to be quite a few of the other shooters there with XD, XDm or XDs. Anyone else shooting IDPA?

I've shot IDPA at a local range a few years back...

I shoot my XDm 9mm Compact which is my EDC. I may try my XDm 5.25" Competition 45 someday, but I want to get a little more used to IDPA procedures before I start that.

I (as well as a few others in the club) shoot the XDm9. I had mine worked over by Springer Precision a while back and it is much smoother and quicker. http://www.springerprecision.com/

My youngest daughter absolutely loves shooting my XD9 in IDPA! And she does quite well, too!

Absolutely bone stock pistol. And she scores great with it!

the secret is to head shoot all the non threats...that ways there's no witnesses and you can blame it on the threat targets you eliminated. Tried that once at a halloween shoot...got lots of laughter from the rest of the squad and funny looks from the RO....didn't help my score any though

Pretty sure this would fall under the "Failure To Do Right" category, or at least gamesmanship. Shoot through the "legs" of the non-threat target, causing it to fall down! "I had to wound the hostage so I could get a clear shot at the bad guy..."

ROFLMAO...ok, now i have to try that I'm pretty sure it won't be a FTDR, but count as a hit on a non hostile....might want to go to 45 to make sure the sticks break though.....

Shouldn't be a hit on a non-threat. They don't give you credit for hitting the stick on a threat, why should they penalize you for the non-threat? Just sayin'

P.S. You won't endear yourself to the guys who set up the stage if they have to rebuild the non-threats several times. If you get away with it, everyone will pile on!
