You knew there would be some here eventually didn't you? Winter can't last forever we hope. So today I took the qualification test to qualify for training and official recognition as an SO with the IDPA. Passed it easily.
The indoor club I belong to is looking in to having IDPA-type events in addition to the usual bullseye-type competitions, and this should help get things moving which will get us some trigger time without the risk of frostbite.
