Default IDPA benefit shoot

Four of us participated as sponsors of a local benefit shoot yesterday. It was the first time shooting any tactical challenges for any of us and we had a blast. I would not pretend to say that I was competitive compared to some of the LEO's that were there but I was very satisfied with how I shot. I'm pretty sure that I could greatly improve my scores on some of the challenges just by doing it a second time.

No pics, no videos, just saying I had a good time. It certainly has me thinking about doing this more often.

As far as the benefit, it's something that was started locally 20+ years ago and has grown over the years. There were over 200 shooters. Watching some of the LEO's was amazing at the groups they were holding. It's my understanding that since this benefit shoot has begun, they have donated close to $400,000 to needy kids. Pretty awesome in my book.

I need to start doing shooting competitions and benefit shoots like this. One of the greatest skills I learned in the Marines was shooting. I hate to let that talent go to waste.

Sounds like a blast and a great cause. I would love to try sometime this but events up here seem hard to come by. I should still join the rod and gun club, though.

The 3 clubs are in the Oakley Park, Richardson & Newton rd areas. If it was shotguns it could of been any club. If it was rifle/pistol it was probably Multi Lakes.
