Lower Providence IDPA: Walt White

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting my very first IDPA Match. The match was held at Lower Providence Rod and Gun ClubOpens in a new tab. and consisted of eight stages. Unlike my USPSA Match Video, I decided to leave in a lot of the material I usually cut out. By doing this, you’ll hear the Safety Officer answer my questions and, hopefully, this will give you a feel for what your first IDPA Match might be like.

As a new shooter, I was asked not to wear a cover garment. I was happy to comply, although I do think it gave me a bit of an advantage (I shoot USPSA pretty regularly and probably could have handled a cover garment). One thing that might be noteworthy is that I shot this match with a brand new gun. I picked up a Glock 19 the day before (to be used for Concealed Carry) and was a little worried about taking it to a match without first test firing it. I’m happy to report that it ran without issue.

Being new to IDPA, I’d love some feedback on my shooting.
I know that is tough without my scores being available,
but feedback on my technique would be helpful
