It looks like GREAT weather for Sunday's IDPA match!  We have some great stages for you (link to the stages above).  Make sure you thank the stage designers for their efforts and volunteer to do one yourself!  I will be in Morro Bay for the Southwest ICORE Championship with Mark, Ty, Wendy and Dave on Sunday so Charles will be handling the meeting and other details.  

If you haven't purchased a gate key from the city yet, make sure and get that done.  For this Sunday you can catch a ride with someone who has a key, get there early and wait for someone to let you in or park and walk in.  Stage setup starts at 7:00am, registration runs 8:15 to 8:50, Shooter's meeting at 9:00.  Don't be late!

See you all at the Classifier Match in May!

Are the targets going to pee themselves when they see us come up to the start position? I heard that happens in real deal.wink

I don't know if my range bag will hold enough ammo to make it through the day. Hahaha

You got a point. "real world"

You got a point. "real world" to me means,

1) always be a good witness
2) always retreat when possible 
3) when all else fails defend your life with whatever means available.

Defense doesn't always need to include 10 bad guys and 3 babies. When was the last time anyone took a hostage shot in real life. Sure it does happen with a sniper from a roof top on occasion. When BG has gun at wifes head, my first instinct is not to turn, draw and fire two rounds at his head and then proceed to position two. Im glad to get an opportunity to shoot stages that better represent "Real World". However I may rue the day I ever joked about it.

Then, hopefully I will learn to forget all the "real world" mumbo jumbo and just accept the fact that it is a game, played with a set of fair and equalizing rules that allow me to enhance my technique and skills while socializing with others who share  similar interests.

Wow!!! Have fun. I'm not

Wow!!!

Have fun. I'm not driving 120+ miles round trip and range fees for 10 rounds. What's that like $5.00 a round fired. Not sure how you can improve your shooting skills with such a low round count(my 0.02) Looks like I will just shoot Sac Valley and Eldorado this month.

April Fools!     Take a look

April Fools!  

 

Take a look at the date and time of the post!  

It was a joke, but also points out that people like different types of stages.  I decided to make a few "real world" stages after some complaints about some stages.

One of the reasons we changed to 4 stage designers from 1 match coordinator, was to have variety of stages.  I encourage everyone who would like to see certain types of stages to volunteer!  The May match is the classifier match, but for the June match we will have 4 first time stage designers.  So, all you members who haven't designed one yet nows your chance!   

 

The real stages submitted by four volunteers will be posted soon!

 

One other thing, in the fall there will be a match made up of these low round count type stages, but there will be 10 or 12 stages to keep the round count up.  Believe me, while these type of stages may not have a big round count they can be very challenging!  Every round counts, many times a sloppy shot that needs a follow-up shot will move you to the bottom of the pack!

Real funny. Lol Thanks for

Real funny. Lol

Thanks for clearing that up. I agree that everyone is different and respect that. I'm just one of those lucky people that can setup simple SD scenarios and shoot them at home. My problem is that I love the game part of IDPA.
