There is an Izaak Walton League chapter near me and I am considering joining and I noticed poking around on their website that they have monthly IPSC matches. I guess my question is what suggestions do you have for someone who has never done any competition shooting? I haven't been a pistol owner for very long...what sort of equipment should I look into? I have my M40-A1 (which I still have yet to shoot) and my M9-A1 are there any pros/cons for one vs the other? What are the best ways to practice? I would like to be able to get everything together, figure out the game, and get out on the course and not look like a fool. All helpful information is appreciated. Thanks.
