USA –-( Shooting USA – The IDPA Nationals

International Defensive Pistol Association competition is a shooting sport rooted in the practice of concealed carry, not necessarily training, but still a great way to sharpen the skills that could save your life. And in this day and age that is a popular combination. Plus, Garry James with the story of the Broom Handle Mauser, that’s now one of History’s Guns. More Info…

And Mike Irvine will be at Ithaca Gun Company (and no doubt scouting out the newest waterfowl accessories). And I’ll be checking to see what Les Baer Sr. has come up with lately at his booth. We all look forward to seeing you there.
