The way I see it is I can shoot very accurate if I want but I know that on steel, if I have a decent sight picture (somewhere on the steel) I can pull the trigger and hit, doesn't matter if it's dead center or not. Just don't shoot faster than you can see. Track the sights once the sights are on target pull the trigger.

Best advice I ever got.......... Repeat after me..... Front Sight, Front Sight, Front Sight. Make this your mantra at the start position.

Once you learn the basics of stance, grip, trigger squeeze and follow-through; you must always see and focus on the front sight to be fast and accurate.

I will suggest something different. Something that every shooter, fast, smooth or slow has been plagued by at one time or another. You do not listen carefully to the stage instructions. How many times have you shot a good accurate score to discover you shot out of sequence, or missed a hidden target. That will count as seconds and points deducted from your total score.

Agreed. Walk though the stage in your mind several times, work out where you're doing the mag changes what targets you are going to engage and in what order.

Shot at my first IDPA match Saturday - I found that the large amount of straight up target shooting I have done was a huge advantage. My target aquisition/shooting came very naturally and overall I felt like the accuracy was adequate for a first try. (32 points down total - division champ had 26) - I was on average 13 seconds slower per stage than the DC (shooting CDP - 8 round/.45ACP)

The practice with my grip (nice high thumbs - Brian Enos style) and drawing/aquiring a sight picture was very helpful, I do need a bit more of that, plus reload practice, and once I got myself calm and relaxed after the first stage I shot much better.

Shooting a XD .45 Compact - 230grain WWB , from a Fobus paddle

Oh, and btw, it was amazingly fun! Very addicting, from now on I will find standing in a stall and shooting 100 rounds at paper so useless!

Sounds like you did well. Congrats on your first time.
