IDPA / Re: What happened to PRGC IDPA?
« Last post by Jim Herrud on February 09, 2019, 01:51:07 PM »
Thx for the update.

I agree Parma IDPA did a great job. It was run in a professional and well organized manner. I was not able to shoot regularly, but as a ongoing Newbie, they made it easy to understand how it worked.

Unfortunately, I'm not surprised at the reasons you mentioned. It seems like there's always a few passionate individuals that get these things setup and going, but we can't expect them to carry it all themselves. I saw the same names on the communication all the time. Unfortunately, I seem to have fallen into the category of "taker" with regards to this group, so I probably have to assume some of the responsibility.

It looks like Nampa RGC doesn't require membership to participate in IDPA, but charges a higher fee - pretty much like PRGC did.

Again, Thx for the info!

Hola,

IDPA at Parma declined due to shooter support. They did a phenomenal job for a really long time but at the end of the day if you have more shooters taking than giving, this is what happens.

I can't speak to the Impact one but I believe a big factor was IDPA enforcing the must be a member rule that hurt turnout.

Nampa IDPA never was at the indoor range facility. It's still plugging away at the outdoor range 12 months a year though. The indoor range is in the process of getting a plan of attack together for cleaning. The range was rarely used but the building is pretty old.

IDPA / What happened to PRGC IDPA?

What happened to IDPA at Parma? I looked away for a couple of years and when I come back, there's no activity.

I logged onto Idaho GunTalk - looks like things have cooled there as well. I found that PRGC had IDPA at Impact Guns for a while, but that's gone away too. Nampa Gun Club had some IDPA activity recently, until Fish and Game closed them down until "repairs are completed". Is IDPA on the decline? Gone?

I'm still a member at PRGC and also at the IDPA organization. I really liked the activity. Life just pulled me away for a while.

USPSA / Re: Where can I shoot USPSA?

That was easy to look up matches.....NOT.
Emmett has a match in three months.
Nampa has a match in 5 days.  Click on the link and they want you to register and sign-up.

User friendly that page is not.

Not sure why shoots no longer get updated on this page.

Are the USPSA matches still being held?
When are they currently scheduled for the Boise area (Nampa, Emmett, etc)?
Not much traffic on any of the matches for the last year which is sad as that was what got me shooting a few.
Hoping to get back in and giving it a go again.

I'm interested in building a rifle in 224. What barrel length and bullet weight combination work best.

Just what does a "3 gun" AR need, as opposed to an AR set up for other types of competition? Or maybe home defense, or LE use, SWAT, or....?

Bling, Chicks and 3 gunners love the bling.
