It's YOUR fault!!!




I'm holding each and every one of you personally responsible for ruining my bank account. I've been into handguns for a little while now, but I've always avoided competition because I thought it would turn me off to shooting b/c of all the pressure and stuff. But after i kept hearing you guys talk about how much fun it was for so long, I finially went to watch a IPSC match at the local indoor range. It was a BLAST! Several of the guys offered to let me shoot their extra gun but I just sat this one out to watch. Now, having seen it first hand, i'm going to have to go out and buy a new gun, with mags, and belt and holster and mag holders... and it's all your fault. You guys turned me on to this, so I think now that the bug's bitten me, you should have to pay for it. After all it is all your fault . No really, I just wanted to say thanks. All of you convinced me to try it, and now i'm hooked. Yes I realize I don't have to go get new guns to compete, but what better excuse to use than this "I have to have it for a competition." I'm really looking foward to this... now i just have to figure out what all i need and what all i really can afford. Thanks again for everything!!!

I shoot Limited 8 and IDPA with the same gear. So you really don't need a new gun. But, as far as I am concerned, any reason to buy a new gun is a good one.

I always tell people to be careful, this stuff is addicting.
