What kind was it, and how many people were there?

I am also new to competition. I've done 1 IDPA, 1 USPSA, and going for IDPA #2 this Sunday. I'm campaigning my S&W1911PD in Custom Defense Pistol, and I was using my wife's Glock 32 in USPSA production, but I think next time I'll use the S&W in Limited 10 if I get the mags.

I am nearly always in 2nd place in CDP division and Limited at local club meets, but unfortunately, ...it usually 2nd to last place!

Humbling, but, it's fun anyway!

(And as Aurthur says on 'King of Queens'..."It's the losers that are the real winners!")

Not really sure what the competition was called(that sounds stupid i know)There were 6 targets and who ever knocked them down the fastest won.It was indoor and it was limited to 22lr pistol iron sights only.Now I have to get a 22 conversion for my kimber.

Sounds like steel plates or 'steelers'.
