Ok guys, I want to get into this sport. Dan's posted video has given me the fever. I have a club within an hour of my location. I need a good "heads-up" on what to expect, some general guidelines, gear requirements, and caliber preference. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

I agree with Jester. Just show up for the match with the equipment you have, about 200 rounds of ammunition and a desire to learn and follow directions. Once you learn the sport, then you can start making decisions on what you need. Also, don't go to a match to "just watch." Get out there and shoot. One strong suggestion, plan on shooting very slow at your first match.

IDPA is great. I had never shot in competition before my first IDPA match and was a little nervous. The members at the club I went to were awesome. Very accepting, helpful and I had a blast. I was instantly hooked. I dont know for sure, but I guess the M&P would fit in the stock service pistol. If not then enhanced service pistol like the XD. Bring about 200 rounds. Rules for holsters, caliber etc can be found at www.idpa.com. Best of luck

Show up early to offer to help set up, stay late to offer to help tear down. It's the right thing to do and you can make some contacts and get some ideas and information that way. I downloaded the rulebook to nice paper and have it spiral bound and covered so it is much easier to review...understanding the rules about tactical sequence, tactical priority, and cover ahead of time will help a lot (if you don't already). The rule book info on equipment, etc., has it all.
