A couple weeks ago while talking to a couple of gents at the range I noticed one of them had an IDPA hat on so I asked him a little about it and now I'm pretty convinced I'd like to give it a try.The next match is in a couple of weeks and I was just wondering if you've never shot any type of competition before do most these local clubs try to help out the new guy or are you on your own? Are the shooters told at the beginning of the stage like how many rounds are required on each target? I know this sounds like dumb questions and while I do not expect to go at there and do great the first time out I would feel more confident about it if I just knew I wasn't going to go out there and make a complete a"" out of myself.I'm just assuming since matches vary in requirements that the r.o.'s give you some kinda run down on what's required of each stage? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
