For those that are shooting IDPA, what pistol are you using? 

 

Just curious.

ScottFM-

 

I use a stock Glock 19 or 17 with aftermarket sights (Dawson Precision fiber optic front/black rear sight).

 

The rest of the rig is a Blade Tech OWB holster, Blade Tech mag holders on a 5.11 Operator 1.75" belt.

   S&W625JM, the Jerry Miculek model .45acp with moon clips.  I made a couple changes, front sight is high-viz green dot by SDM and I changed out the JM grips for Hogue Bantam grips in Cocobolo wood.  I use either a Mitch Rosen OWB belt holster or a Cabo IWB both are leather.  California Competition Works moon clip holders and Load/Unload tool and a homemade demooner tool.

Wow really interesting. I actually just sold my Glock 19, well traded it in on a new carry gun, P365 SAS. I was thinking of the Glock 17 or the CZ for IDPA, perhaps I should have kept the 19? Too late now. 

 

Does anyone use an optic or is everything really just done with regular or fiber optic sights for that type of competition?

Glock 34 with dawson fiber front and darked out rear sight and zev trigger.  Sometimes M&P 9 full size with same sight setup with apex trigger.  ESP for both.

I've used a G34, P220 a few times, and will likely shoot my next match with a P320 Compact.

More than anything else recently, I've been taking my Sig P320 Compact.  I will occasionally take my P365, and very occasionally take one of my 1911's.

 

Also in the running (even though I don't think I've taken either of them in more than a year) are my VP9 and PPQ M2.

Theoretically, they're coming up with a separate division for optics.  I haven't checked the rules yet to see if it's official.  Other than that division, optics are illegal AFAIK.

   I do pretty much all my shooting in Indiana and those two clubs run an optics class.  I may be wrong but I think the optics division is now legal but a club does not have to run it. I will find out for sure and get back.   Jim.

This is one sport I never found an interest in, mainly because I shoot USPSA and 3 gun and during the summer I can fill up almost every Sunday with a match.  Both of those sports are very high round count whereas from what I've seen at IDPA matches, the round count is very low in comparison.  

 

If I were to get into it, I'd imagine myself using my VP9 SK.

I haven't been involved in years, but I used a modified 1911 and then towards the end, I tried a warmed up XDM 5.25 that I was never really happy with.

There is an optics class now.

I don't run an optic on my EDC pistol so I don't run one for any comps.

I guess our club's a little behind the times.  To be honest, it isn't that big.

Don't worry about guns you don't have any longer. Bring the 365, see how it fits into the box and class yourself accordingly. Have fun, Brother.  :D

Run whatever you have to start with. Once you decide it's something you want to do regularly then you can start upgrading equipment. Ok
