Good for you. Once you get over the initial jitters of entering a competition, you'll realize how much fun it is. Although there may be blood-thirsty competitors in the mix, many are there simply to have a fun, safe, structured shooting opportunity. Go for it!

Also what's the course of fire like...silhouettes, plates, multiple shooting positions...or is just stand and deliver on a rack of plates...LMK thanks

We're thinking of driving down from Hartford so want to make sure of whats up before we head out.

I can't speak for Wooster Mountain, but most IDPA events require you to shoot from cover and may have specific target order (shooting first visible, etc.). If there are new shooters, some clubs may have them shoot from the low-ready instead of from the holster. Generally, you will be moving from station to station, so the RO's will be looking for indexed trigger fingers and muzzle control.
As for targets, each club may have a variety of them. Paper silhouettes, hostages/no shoots, plates, clays, bowling pins, pepper poppers and what have you. Once at Ledyard, they had a soft cover target (a tarp that simulated a wall of a room) with either a short or tall silhouette behind it. You didn't know where the target was, so you could pepper the area with dozens of rounds or shoot a few and risk a miss.
In short, just go and enjoy the shoot, be it Wooster Mountain, HRG, Metacon or my backyard (rain makes paper a bit tough to maintain and score, but water-filled cans work in a downpour).



I've found lead ingots to be interesting targets, too:

Wooster Mountain PPC is not an action pistol type event.

Bob,

Care to share a little more about the course of fire?
