    Short answer is to look at the rule book at the IDPA website at www.IDPA.com it'll explain alot also you can read the post here called "What is IDPA" in this forum. But basically you'll need a pistol ( Revolver or semi-auto) a hoslter that will securely hold your firearm, 2 or 3 mags and a mag pouch. Or if shooting a Revolver 3 speed loaders, and a speedloader pouch, otherwise you'll have to load from your pockets. Be a safe shooter, take your time they will go over range commands for all new shooters (new to IDPA). Since it's hot this time of year you won't need a cover garment, so have fun. As stated before your match fees cover your lunch and drinks, so drink lots of water. There is plenty of shade but might bring a chair to sit in, and there are restrooms not port-a-potties. You might also want to look at Terrells website at www.tr-pc.com .

    Thank you

    My wife and I attended, and we had a blast (get it? )

    Anyway, I would like to say thank you to everyone who was there. We didn't meet one person that didn't treat us like we had been coming around forever. I really felt at home there, I wish I lived closer so we could shoot there all the time.

    I am definitely going to be getting my idpa membership so I can come back next month.

    See you then!!!
