    Freeport generally does not post stages. Shooting distances are typically be between 5 and 15 yards.

    Question: is there a link to the competition day set up? Can I see stages and distances?

    Mike got back to me. You can get away with three mags on all but one stage.

    A stage can be 32 rounds max. With 3 mags, you are only carrying 30 rounds. You can try to get another mag, or hopefully somebody may chime in having one to loan you. You can just accept the two misses off the bat, but it will kill your score.

    I'll reach out to Mike, and see how many rounds per stage he has planned.

    Using a pocket to hold mags is fine. It may just slow you down a bit, but being your first match speed should not be a major concern.

    I have eye and ear pro. Running SIG MK25/P226 9mm. Have holster and x2 mags pouch. Would need then +1 (+2) mags? Can I use a pocket for the extra mag? Thanks for your advise, I will send Mike email later.

    Total newbs are always welcome. Every single one of us were total newbs at one point. Just show up at least a half hour before the scheduled start time, and let us know it is your first match, so we have a time to show you the ropes. You will be squadded with guys who will work with you. Keep in mind Freeport is a COLD RANGE as far as matches are concerned. If you are not a Freeport member, you must enter with the gun empty, and the mag out.

    Being a USPSA match, the max rounds per stage is 32, so you will need a minimum of four 10 round mags, I've needed a fifth mag only a handful of times in five years of shooting, and it just would have been nice, but not required. IDPA style matches, which are the second weekend of the month at Freeport, max at 18 rounds per stage, and you can use three mags. Pre-ban mags are not allowed. Let us know what you're shooting, and if it's common enough, there's a good chance somebody will have mags to loan you. I always have two G17 mags and a mag pouch in my bag, even when I don't shoot a G17. You need to use a 9mm Luger or .38 Super and up in a semi auto, .38 and up in a revolver. No magnum calibers are allowed.

    Eyes and ears are mandatory at all times, even to observe, even if "only for a minute".

    I can go on, and will eventually make a sticky, but if you have any other questions and/or concerns, feel free to ask away. Even though LIG is only a couple of weeks old, we have a number of comp shooters already on board.

    Being Mike only has one post, you might have better luck reaching him at his email: [email protected]

    Freeport is a great place to shoot your first match. Let Mike know you have never shot a match or whoever you are squaded with know that you are new and they will work with you and show you the ropes. You will need an outside the waistband holster and I think you need at least 3 magazines but preferably more.
