    IDPA style (handgun only) match at Freeport R&R 6/12/16 **SUNDAY ONLY**

    Just so there is no confusion: **SUNDAY ONLY**

    IDPA style match at Freeport R&R 6/12/16. Start time (actually go bang) 0800. Expect four stages, Course descriptions not available. 72 rounds max. Two boxes should be good in case a reshoot may be required. If you plan on shooting, email Mike at [email protected] with your full name, which division you plan to shoot, or type of gun and caliber.

    Did I mention this is SUNDAY ONLY?

        Freeport IDPA style matches are not sanctioned, and are always $10. The USPSA matches are sanctioned, and are $20, unless it is a special match. If the cost is out of ordinary for whatever reason, it will be posted.

          For those of us who have never been to Freeport for a match, how do these normally work. Are they similar to steel challenge matches where you do the same course a few times (only I believe they use the cardboard ABCD targets?)

            Nothing like LIPSA.

            4 or 5 groups lined up on the same line at different stages. One person goes from one group while everyone on the range waits. Then the next person from the second group until everyone in all groups does the stage. Then every group rotates to the next stage.

            Due to the layout of the range that's the only way to do this. LIPSA has individual pits with individual berms. Freeport does not. Everyone is in the same "pit" that's sectioned off in various stages.

            Everyone at the Freeport matches are extremely nice and you'll have a good time. But it will take longer to complete than at LIPSA.

              Steel Challenge is completely different than IDPgAy.
              Steel Challenge = A Fast and Fun day at the range
              IDPgAy = Oppressive rules that will crush your soul. If you are caught having a good time they will create a new rule to end that.

              Still a day of shooting is better than sitting at home. And Freeport doesn't require you to wear a fishing vest like the retards normally do.

              Nice people at Freeport and always friendly, just let them know you are a new shooter and they will be happy to guide you. Then come back and shoot USPSA on the first weekend of the month.

              I know USPSA is a lot more relaxed/fun then IPDA, different rules/etc... but still shooting is shooting, just different rules for them. I'll have to look into IPDA and see if any of my rigs classify for it (which they do, I just need to find out which one i'd want to shoot). Plus it'd be nice to see freeport for a change. I've been thinking of joining.

              I may just take a ride down there after I wake up and watch it. I hear freeport is more spectator friendly

                why in the world would you do that.... just shoot it. My first matches were IDPA shoots. Nothing wrong with IDPA. Only things you have to remember is reloads behind cover, all mags dropped have to be empty, shoot the targets based on the course description. IDPA is low round count.

              IDPA and USPSA are simply 2 different disciplines of shooting sports. They may seem similar, only because we don't shoot true IDPA here on LI. IDPA grew out of self-defensive type of shooting. While USPSA is a pure sports/competitive type of shooting. Both are challenging in their own way.

                In the words of Pat Rogers.....see the target, shoot the MF target.
