I shoot an informal match that uses elements of both IDPA and IPSC, but without a dogmatic approach. For instance, the stage description might read, "engage T1-T3 with two shots from box A, then engage T4-T7 with two shots each while moving, then engage T8 with six shots from box B". No "onlys", no equipment rules, just, "here's the COF, now shoot it". On "IDPA night" we do tactical reloads, use cover, engage targets in "threat order", and express the score as time; but still no equipment rules. On "open night" it's more run 'n' gun, with the score expressed in hit-factor. Misses are just the five points you didn't get becaue you missed. We put swinging no-shoots in front of target arrays, and count any shoot-throughs as hits. We do "stake shoots" with squads vying to be first to saw a 4x4 in half. Everyone has a good, safe time. Some people don't take to the seriousness of formal competition, but they like to get out and improve their gunhandling and hang-out with other shooters. I try to work on my technique, not rushing, concentrating on fundamentals. It helps my scores in the formal matches.
