I went and shot the South Carolina State IDPA Championship this weekend. It was a fun and challenging match. I shot CDP SS with my XD .45 Tactical. Here is the video

Your wife's going to be really peeved when she sees how you were using her minivan.

Looks like fun. So how did you do?

I won CDP SS and also beat all the EX. I came in 10th overall out of 140. Not to bad since I haven't been shooting the .45 long.

SO if you were sandbagging, you are shooting expert for the rest of the year after that.:oops: Good shooting. I am off to GA for the state champ there, also shooting CPD/SS, but decided to go 1911 instead of the XDTAC. I missed my expert classifier by 9 fricking sec.

Sorry, but this makes me want to vent about one of my IDPA pet peeves.

"Cover..."

So annoying to hear. Everytime I shoot, I get the "cover" complaint. Last time I checked 90% of walls are not cover. If they want to teach people something useful, they should teach them to get on a knee or prone.

Awesome match. This is my normal monthly shooting range for idpa so this coming weekend is the monthly shoot and the stages are staying the same. We can't wait to shoot it. Good shooting!

Let me guess, USPSA guy right? You are getting cover calls because you are not using cover properly. If you want to blow & go, shoot USPSA. Cover means that, cover, if you can see more than one target while engaging another, you are not behind cover, pretty simple. The idea is to not get shot, use cover when it's available. Sure the props are not true cover, but kinda hard to build conc walls & such for a match.:rolleyes: Shooting from cover is the hardest part for noob IDPA guys & guys coming form USPSA, that & the ridiculous bunnyfart loads that IPDA 125PF allows. There are no factory 40 that make 125PF & few 9mm that anyone would carry. The min PF is my pet peave, why I shoot CDP.

I shoot all the auto classes and I use factory ammo in all my guns. This way I can pick on the other guys for their mouse fart loads.
The only problem I have with cover calls is that it is subjective. The same S.O. called cover on just about everyone in our group. Yet I'm the only one who got the procedural. I normally use cover really well and I made a movement as soon as I heard the cover call. It just something you have to get used to and not let bother you. If you move faster than the S.O. thanks you can and he gets caught flat footed you are either gonna get the call or he'll just let it go.

Nice videos. Really enjoy seeing the matches from the 1st person. Looking to start shooting IDPA soon. Any advice for a noob? And any suggestions on a good club to shoot at? I live just outside of Columbia.

Appreciate it. I've been looking into that club for few and have been in contact with Jack Suber out there and finding out more about it. They also have some steel challenge competitions out there that I am thinking about competing with my S&W M&P 15-22 in.

Its a good club. I've shot there a few times.
The best advice that I can give to any new shooter to IDPA is go out to a match and have fun. Don't have any unreal expectations for yourself. IDPA shooters are always willing to help if you have questions. As long as you have fun and your safe you'll have a good time
