I shoot IDPA at this time. These work very well for me.

The most shot firearm is a S&W model 19 or 66. Both are .38 special/.357 magnum. I use .38 +P loads in competition. 125 gr. tc fmj. at 1000 fps.


The second most used is a Browning HiPower in 9mm. 124 gr. fmj, at 1100 fps.

And finally comes the Colt Gold Cup in .45 acp. 200 gr. LSWC at about 900 fps.

I have a P14-45 limited. I have been shooting only a year and it was what was recommended to me. I like it. My old eyes need the big holes the 45 SWC make.

SSP either Glock 34 or 35 (gamer guns). I did shoot my G23 last night.
ESP Kimber .40. CDP Kimber.45 or Chuck. At least for me, I have found in all calibers that heavy and slow is better than light and fast.

I was shooting a Glock 19 in SSP

I'm now making the leap to CDP with and will use an Essex arms 1911A1 government clone and maybe my Para P12.45 as well.

.45 ACP for both IPSC and IDPA. I'm going to shoot some 9 and 10 this year, but it will still be 90% .45.

Nothing but .45 for IPSC, IDPA, and bowling pins...

The caliber does whatever is needed beautifully, why bother with anything else?

I started off in IDPA with a full sized 1911 with a DA trigger in CDP, using 230 grain ball ammo at 850 fps. I have used a Commander model once using a 185 gr winchester jhp sitting on 9 grains of aa#5 at nearly 975 fps. I use chip MCCormick mags and Colt mags.

Most times i'm shooting an FEG hi power with 115 gr ball ammo by UMC at 1135 fps and I use a mix of factory, mil surplus and ramline magazines.

One of the nice things about this set up is that I can use my galco slide holster for all three of these guns, and my AMS cordura and velcro magazine pouch can hold either single or double stack mags securely and comfortably.
