Competition 101: IDPA with Revolvers

When I show up for an International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) match, and a fellow attendee asks “What division you shooting in?” and my reply is “BUG [Back Up Gun] Revolver,” I can almost be 100% sure their facial expression will be one of surprise or even mild amusement, and the accompanying verbal response will be a rather incredulous “No, seriously?” Continue reading “Competition 101: IDPA with Revolvers”

3,650 Minutes of Dry Practice

It seems fashionable to look down one’s nose at new year’s resolutions and to say “now I’m not one for making resolutions…” But I’m making one, and here goes: I’ve read with envy as Claude Werner writes about his 1,000 Days of Dry Practice.
