Hello,
I've been bugging the heck out of MRC's USPSA chairman with lots of questions. I did a IPSC 101 class at MRC in 2009 and have not been active since then.
I have signed up with the USPSA and Gary has offered to help me out with a practice session prior to showing up at MRC's 1st 2017 match.
Trying to figure out what an legal holster is, wanting to gear up correctly. I have downloaded the USPSA pistol rules.
VR,
Don Jones

Not sure what MRC is but do you have a USPSA safety check yet? If so, just show up at a local club match, tell them you are new, tell your squad-mates you are new and they will help you. Don't let equipment stop you, I can't imagine anyone at a club match turning you away because some piece of gear was wrong - unless it was unsafe. I started 3-gun the same way and was amazed at how incredibly helpful people were right down to loaning me a shotgun when mine went down. If you don't have a safety check card get one, you'll have to find a range/club that is holding safety checks and attend. There was one Tuesday night at West Cost Armory-North I believe. Also, try the USPSA local Facebook page for local calendar events and another place to ask questions.

Good luck and press-on, it's great fun! :AR15firing:

Welcome to WaGuns !!!!!!!!!!!!

You will get "HOOKED" on competition shooting.
1) save all the brass you can.
2) plan to start reloading soon.

Yes I have my safety check card. Issued in July 2009.
MRC is Marysville Rifle Club. Are you an IPSC shooter?

Cool, Marysville is where I took my 3 gun orientation and safety check too. I mostly shoot 3 gun but some Action Pistol at Snoqualmie Rifle and plan to shoot some USPSA just to sharpen pistol and problem solving skills for 3 gun.
Jump in, tell them you are new, and soak it all in.

Thank you for the welcome.
I just rotated off the e-board of MRC and know full well about the success of that program. The 3 gun matches at MRC are well attended, very popular, and wildly successful.
