Just curious as its bigger back east. I got my black badge certified 1989 .. Yup I'm " older" was pretty young at the time . 38 super race guns were all the rage. I competed with my favorite auto cz75. Super accurate and reliable with my own reloads.

.38 super is still popular, and the cz75 Shadow dominates the production class.

If you ask me, it's WAY to difficult to get into the sport and it has become very bureaucratic.
I had to send my application to IPSC BC 3 times after they took my money just to get my certificate for reasons they wouldn't tell me. Took about 2 months from when I completed the course.

This is the list you need to go through to compete in IPSC.

Apply for PAL : 1 Week
PAL Course : $100 - 8 Hours
RPAL Course : $100 - 8 Hours
RCMP Approval/Issue Licence : $80 - 3-12 Months

Gun Range Membership : $200-$400 - 0-12 Months waiting period.
A.T.T. - 1-7 Days
Handgun, Holster, Magazines, Belt : $400+ (More likely $1000)

Study Black Badge Manual for test - 8 Hours
ISPC Black Badge Course - $265 - 0-30 Day Waiting Period - 16 Hour Course
Ammo For Course - $120
Receive Certificate - 1 Month

Now you still don't have your Black Badge.

Sign up for qualifier - $85 0-3 months

If you prove yourself/or decide you actually like the sport, you can apply for your Black Badge after all of the above and compete.

Just to try the sport:

Waiting Periods : 6 month from start to finish would be fast. More likely 8-12 months average.
Classroom time : 36 Hours
Cost : Around $2000 to pay all your fees, buy a gun, and get the ammo to take the black badge course with.

It was definitely easier when I did it. Plus I got my cz through lever arms Before the wall came down. Cz 's were only 250$ plus 25 per mag.

But once you've got your PAL you can buy a rifle and get shooting. Shooting IPSC is pretty rarified stuff IMO.

Which is my point, its still dominated by old people who got into it when you could walk out of the store with a handgun and apply for you black badge then compete across north america.

Its a really cool sport, and its being killed by bureaucrats.

the instructors at Silvercore do this stuff , they travel to Seattle area , they mentioned they rent the firearms they need per meet . on a local scale I bet most doing this are LEO,s or work with the JI . or are firearms instructors .

So I "worked from home" today and ended up at the range for lunch. Huh. Imagine that. I just got my new 527 zeroed in and then the scope started to twist in the rings. But I did manage to finally try my K31 that I set up with a diopter and that was a lot of fun to shoot, as always.

K31 with Swiss Products diopter sight system.

First 100 metre target with diopter - 5 shots

100 metre target with diopter - 10 shots. I can't seem to get the shot down without adjusting holdover low.

I popped back into Tiger Arms the other day and took a few pics of their Korth .357s. The black and blue model are each $9,900 and the gold one is $10,100. They let me hold the blue one, but I had to take off my ring and wear the white gloves. I was not allowed to work the action or the cylinder at all - just hold it. I love their proprietary blue model - just not the price.

Tiger arms has really impressed me. When I was looking for 9mm Makarov ammo they sold it too me $10.00 per box even though every store I found that had some in stock was selling it 4x as much. Westcoasthunting sold me the same caliber at $40.00 per box because I didnt know about Tigerarms at the time. Alot of the store I emailed or called didn't even get back to me.

I brought my Keltec Sub2000 in there to get a sling, they took the time and mounted it for me to try out before I bought it too make sure I liked it.

I haven't bought a firearm from them yet, but their pricing seems competitive and I like their customer service so far.

not too far from me will have to check them out , I guess it helps with the range on Burke being up the hill from them to set up in Poco .

I'll take an S[HTML_REMOVED]W after I've worked the triggers every time but they are pretty.

The raw, primitive, unrefined trails that see little to no maintenance are the kinds of trails that really build skill. What kind of skills do you learn riding a trail that was made by a machine, groomed to perfection and void of any rocks, roots or other obstacles that could send you careening over the handlebars?
