Shooting Brother Enrico M. teaching a First Step class on IDPA. If you carry concealed while wearing a cover garment like jacket, vest, shirt, etc your do not pussyfoot moving the garment away but do it in a manner forceful enough to clear the gun and avoid any tangles or screw ups. Do notice the placement of the Weak/Non-Dominant hand: Away from the projected path of the coming gun but ready to be used in a two-hand hold.
Tropical Sport Shooting Association teaches these classes to those interested in participate in IDPA but are afraid that their gun manipulation is not good enough. Go ahead and contact your local IDPA Club, if they do not have an established class, more than likely they will have somebody coach you before and during a match.
Go for it!
” If you worry about shooting a match and “Oh My God! I’ll never get over it if I come in dead last,” consider you are pretty close to the one in a million people who is willing to test their skills at this. If you ever do come dead last, you still came out ahead of a few hundred thousands of people who thought they were cool but didn’t have the guts to get out there and test themselves like you just did.”
