For whatever its worth here, I shot my first IDPA match and had a blast. I was slow, it was hard, but it was super fun. I definitely know what I have to work on (multiple target work, quick sight alignment, and faster draw to first shot). There was a good amount of strategy deployed by the more experienced participants, so that was fun to see. Overall, the IDPA thing was definitely a positive experience, and I look forward to shooting more matches when I find them available.
