    Hey guys, hope everyone's been doing well. I emailed Synergy a few weeks ago and got the same response as fsusoldier. I was looking forward to it being held late spring again, September will be sweltering, like 2010. Don't know of any LE only matches, I've been shooting IDPA about once a month, there isn't much in the way of competitions up this way.

    Has anybody changed actual duty guns since last year? My 9mm 1911 sucked on those big steel poppers last year, bugged the shit out of me so I decided to get a .45. A couple of months ago I bought a FNP-45 Tactical, we have quals and training next month and I'll be switching over to the new gun then.

    Why don't you try USPSA? There is a match every Sunday until about November.

    I shoot IDPA at the Hampden club (75 miles each way, ugh), I could try the USPSA stuff there. How different is it from IDPA?

    It is not "tactical" like IDPA. Many different divisions just like IDPA so you can shoot what you have. Stages are similar but the rules are different and the round counts are higher. Harvard does a USPSA practice every Wednesday night around 4:30 or so, you should come out and try it.

    I appreciate the invite, too bad it's a 5+ hour drive from here to there. Too far for a Wednesday night.

    Holy cow! There are some shooters from Maine who come down for the USPSA matches. I'm shooting a match this morning, I'll ask if they do any practices at their clubs that you could go to.
