Hi everyone,



Here is a stage I designed at our last IDPA match here in Florida. The start of the video got messed up but it starts with a simulated shotgun pointed at the shooters chest. The goal was the trap the shotgun with one hand and draw and shoot with the other. I'm trying to incorporate more emptyhand transitions to firearms. AND...I'm shooting my new M&P that worked great! Notice the slidelock reload and auto-drop right before I hit the popper...I love this gun!

nice reload and tripple on the mover -



Looks like a lot of movement for an IDPA stage - is this acceptabe in the larger IDPA circles? I'm just a USPSA shooter - I'm going to branch out and shoot some IDPA next year just for the extra shooting with the production gun.

Thanks...I'm the opposite. I've been doing IDPA for a couple of years and I'm going to start doing USPSA Production for more trigger time.



I'm not sure about "larger circles" but it does follow the IDPA book as far as under 18 rounds, it follows the idea of real-life scenerio (open to interpretation), 75% of targets are less than 15 yards, some closer some farther, use of cover is required, etc, etc... It DOES break the rules in that there is more than 15 yards total movement and might prove a disadvantage to seniors or people with disabilities. I would say most everybody enjoyed shooting the stage, even the old-timers and we haven't recieved any complaints. I think I was allowed to do this stage by the match director because the majority of the other stages involved multiple strings with very little movement, so maybe they figured it averaged out? I think it would depend on the individual club running the match, most everyone at our club likes having a good time and this stage was just fun to shoot. Probably won't see one with that much movement in a State or Regional.

Some shooters look to IDPA for entertainment, some look for real life scenario. A good course designer look to provide something in between.
