I ran across this one and thought it was their new one.

That was from the club's webmaster from 3+ years ago. I couldn't get a hold of the guy to get the domain transferred, so I just set up a new domain.

Man I hate when that kind of stuff happens. Expires in May so maybe you can snag it if he doesn't renew.

He has it auto-renewing. I don't even know if he realizes that. Last May I thought I could snatch it up and then it got renewed.

Like I said, I'm already a member of the IDPA. Shiloh breaks down their fees for associate, affiliate and standard members. I don't see any information on the differences or even how to sign up for what sounds like a Shiloh membership.

Hey Alex, it's $5 club fee unless you do a partial prepay for the year which saves you a bit depending on how often you will shoot at the club.
You still have to pay the range fee of $15 as well.
I shoot at Shiloh every other Thursday myself and will be there next week instead of this week.

What Dom said :)

Everyone who shoots with us is required to pay a $10 yearly insurance fee as this page indicates:
http://www.shilohidpa.com/Content/MatchInfo.aspx

That is what the associate membership ($5 club fee for matches) is.

Thinking about going out to Shiloh this Thursday for IDPA.

I am a a new shooter with a new pistol.  I have several trips to the range with the pistol (500+ rounds) and am comfortable with my ability to safely handle the gun.  I grew up around guns and hunted regularly, so gun safety is not new to me, I just have not had a handgun before now.

Question is, I have a cheapo holster and can have a mag pouch by then, but I currently only have two magazines.  Will I be able to participate as a new shooter with only two mags?

Anything special about this Thursday that I should know prior to driving out there?

Thanks,
Richard

Two magazines will be fine, you just won't have many extra rounds available for longer stages (I'm currently planning on 12-16 round stages).

As far as cheap holsters - if you're talking cloth style holster - cheap is bad. You're likely going to end up sweeping your hand with a loaded weapon while holstering the gun. They collapse too easily. This is especially true of IWB cheapos. If it's a cheapo plastic holster, no problem. For mag pouches, you can do anything - cheap, expensive or your pockets.

As far as anything to know, please start at this page (video and text):
http://www.shilohidpa.com/Content/NewShooters.aspx

Beyond that, the super important things to remember:
1) If you are not actively engaging targets, your finger is completely out of the trigger guard (and preferrably indexed on the slide)
2) Your gun must always be pointed down range at all times it's outside the holster. While shooting, reloading and moving from position to position. Do not Charlie's Angel your gun (point it up/down) - bring it into your chest instead of pointing it up or down.
3) There is no gun handling unless you are at the line shooting.
4) Listen to the safety officer running you through a stage and wait for their commands before doing anything.

Next take a peek at the Match Info page:
http://www.shilohidpa.com/Content/MatchInfo.aspx

This details match fees and when you should get there. Please note that the range takes credit cards, but the club does not (match fees and membership fees should be in cash/check).

Come on out Lefty, it's a great time.
If your cheapie holster is cloth, I'd suggest you pick up a cheap Fobus paddle or similar from Academy/Gander/etc.
Just to add to what Adam said about keeping your gun pointed down range, at Shiloh downrange is very direct due to the limited backstop area.

Awesome Adam...Thanks for the reply.

The holster is a OWB belt mounted nylon type that is pretty stiff and seems to stay open.  I will practice a bit with it...If I can't get the gun in/out of it reliably, I will look for something else.

The practice of keeping it pointed downrange is noted and I will try to practice that a bit at home also...

I have been to the website and looked at the new shooter page and some of the other vids.  I am excited to come out and see how all of this works.

Thanks for the reminder CJ, I tried before but couldn't reg till today.
Adam, how do you get a longer advance window for registering?
I want to make sure to get in on the BUG match the 29th.

I made a change yesterday, I may or may not get overruled by my other club board members, but right now it's as follows... it's based on club membership level due to overcrowding:

* We have 30 online registrations available
* Standard ($110) members can register any time for any match that's published on the website
* Affiliate ($35) members can register 2 weeks in advance (on Friday) [used to be 1 week]
* Everyone else can register 1 week in advance (on Friday) [used to be 2 days]

We are still allowing walk-ins, with new shooters taking priority. We can accommodate up to 36 and these spots are on a first-come first-served basis. Policy for walk-ins and the like defined on CJ's link above.

Thanks Adam, glad to see the change to allow 1 week pre-registration but I think I'll go ahead and pay to be an affiliate member to have 2 week pre-reg.

...and a $2 weekly match fee discount. It pays for itself after 12.5 matches. The Standard membership evens out (compared to the $35 membership) at 25 matches.
