Hello and good day to all...This is my first post on this site, but surely not the last. I am looking to get into competitive shooting. I am not new to handgun shooting(started about age 9) but never really got into the competitive area till watching a buddy of mine compete while overseas. from that point, I was hooked. I call West Virginia my home, but have not found any info on beginner matches, or any matches for that matter. I would be willing to travel a bit, but would prefer to stay as close to home as possible. Any info you all would have would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the forum. Find a cub near you, USPSA or IDPA and contact them to see when the matches are and go watch. Some have "new shooter" briefings to attend prior to shooting a match.

IPSC/USPSA. WV is in Area 5, but no clubs listed in WV. You could be close to other clubs in Area 5 or Area 8.
www.USPSA.org Click on the Area 5 & 8 selections and check to see what is close to you.
