Can I shoot my TRP Op in IDPA? Do any of you guys shoot this gun in competition, and if so what class do you shoot in? Sorry if this sounds dumb, I've been thinking of getting into some competition but not sure where to go with this gun. Thanks.
Most of the matches around here let you shoot, within reason, what you like(normal carry weapons). Most of them around here are "bragging rights" matches and practice for national matches. Granted your Operator Springer is not legal for shooting in IDPA according to the rulebook, but most of your local matches will let you shoot with them. Since you have a 1911 platform weapon more then likely they will toss you in with the CDP shooters. Find out when the next local IDPA match is and call the range and ask if you can shoot your Springer in the match. If they're anything like the people are here they'll tell you to "come on down!" Most ranges that put on IDPA matches love to have new shooters come and shoot. Before you go to a match, visit www.idpa.com and read the rules and other helpful information they provide to new shooters. Good luck, have fun, and be safe.
