The I.D.P.A National Shooting match was held in Tulsa Oklahoma in September of 2010. It is one of the most sought after matches of the year for all I.D.P.A shooters including Jr. Shooters (Shooters under the age of 18). I have been shooting I.D.P.A for 8 years as a Jr. Shooter and have looked forward to the National competition since I started my shooting adventure. Over the years of shooting in competitions at our local range, I developed skills and techniques that helped me achieve my goal to compete at Nationals.
Shooting in the National Competition in Tulsa was one of the best things that happened in 2010. The stages where some of the most challenging I have ever seen, both mentally and for your gun handling skills. They all had multiple ways in which to approach them. This made for a very complex course of fire that would challenge any shooter, let alone a Jr. Shooter. Even thought it was a challenging match, it seemed to go by way to fast because of all the fun we had shooting. The squad I shot with where great and had a few great Master-class and Expert-class shooters that we could watch and learn from. After the second day of competing the results where posted and I placed overall 3rd place in the SSP Sharp Shooter division and was bumped to Expert. In the Jr. Division, I placed 2nd behind Tori Nonaka, a Master class 16-year-old Jr. Shooter. So, all in all, the most sought after I.D.P.A match of the year is “the” best match of the year and should be shot by any I.D.P.A member especially if you’re a Jr. shooter looking for the best shooting experience you’ll ever have.
