    I used to attend regularly but frequent travel interfered, I'm looking to get started again. It's right by RDU airport and entry fee is $5.00. Follow the link to the rules and such. It's a lot of fun and excellent practice for folks who CCW. C'mon, I know a bunch of you live close. I'm in Durham. If you've never shot an IDPA type match before this is a great place to start.
    All stock guns, revolver and auto's. Draw from belt holster.

    I used to shoot it fairly regularly in the spring, but life has gotten in the way. There' some good shooters up there, it's good for some trigger time, and they pay out, which is a plus. I'm just not a big fan of some of the IDPA rules. Good group of guys out there, not a bad little four stage match.

    I was a member some 8 years ago. Work changed and I let my membership lapse. Life has changed and I would like to get back into the shooting sports. I think I will come out this tuesday Oct. 28 and give it a try hope some members will show up. :)

    I'm on business travel this week so I won't make it Tuesday. However, the following Tuesday I'll be there.

    ???I'm not seeing that, says 'year round' where I'm reading (linked page and the main page).

    I've been thinking of going. Fella on another forum has started going and it sounds like fun. $5 is the cheapest entry fee I've ever seen! Unfortunately the next 2 Tues. are out for me.

    you are right. I was looking at something else. Sorry for my confusion. That does sound like fun and is really cheap too. I'll have to make it out soon.

    Question, do you have to complete the safety class before competing? Or is that a requirement of full time members only?

    No safety class required to shoot the IDPA matches. Just a RO and a bunch of very cautious shooters.

    I've been planning to check this out for months, but my schedule just hasn't worked out so I could go. I think this coming Tuesday might be the day, though. Maybe I'll see some of you out there.

    I'm deer hunting tonight so I won't be at the match.
