    Feb 22 Update: Mid-Atlantic Region Match Listings

    *DISCLOSURES: While I make every effort to keep this list accurate and complete and updated, I am not responsible for errors and omissions. Please confirm information with each venue/match director and all dates and times. Matches may be cancelled at the last minute and regularly scheduled matches may not run in winter months.*
    *SAFETY: Please assume that ALL ranges and venues are cold ranges. Do not carry loaded firearms onto these ranges or properties unless you have received permission from the range owners/operators/match-directors or you know for certain you are allowed to carry hot onto the range. LEO's may be exempt from this, and it is up to you to know for certain it is allowed. The ONLY range that I know for certain that it’s okay to arrive and depart hot is the NRA range.*

    Apr 16 Update: Mid-Atlantic Region Match Listings

    *DISCLOSURES: While I make every effort to keep this list accurate and complete and updated, I am not responsible for errors and omissions. Please confirm information with each venue/match director and all dates and times. Matches may be cancelled at the last minute and regularly scheduled matches may not run in winter months.*
    *SAFETY: Please assume that ALL ranges and venues are cold ranges. Do not carry loaded firearms onto these ranges or properties unless you have received permission from the range owners/operators/match-directors or you know for certain you are allowed to carry hot onto the range. LEO's may be exempt from this, and it is up to you to know for certain it is allowed. The ONLY range that I know for certain that it’s okay to arrive and depart hot is the NRA range.*

    I know it has been a long time since I updated this list, and I apologize for getting behind. I am now Area Coordinator and still match director for two clubs, and that has been keeping me busy. I now distribute a Newsletter to IDPA shooters in VA/MD/DC and I list matches as a part of that newsletter. For the sake of expediency, I have posted the Newsletter here, which includes upcoming matches. Thanks for your understanding. Cody
    __________________________________________________ ______
    IDPA Shooters in the Mid-Atlantic:I hope you are all having a great year, enjoying this great weather, and have made progress in developing your skills this year and been enjoying IDPA in the Virginia and Maryland areas. It has been a very busy year as I have been working to teach SO classes, get existing SO's certified, visit local clubs, review sanctioned matches, get in some practice and shoot a few matches myself. This notice may be reposted freely.

    In light of the Paris terrorist attacks and the threats by ISIS on our own country, it's important for us all to continue to improve our gunfighting and self-defense skills. Be safe, be prepared, and keep your dry fire practice going and get to some matches when you can, and take more tactical training. Also, if you have the opportunity to take hand-to-hand self-defense training such as Krav Maga or Brazilian, Jiu-Jitsu, this will provide more tools in your arsenal. Same goes for pepper spray deployment training.


    First, I want to clarify that the announcement of the 1second/point scoring change will not occur until late 2016 or even 2017. No timeline has been set. You are welcome to try it out if you like at the local club levels, but I have chosen to stay with .5s/point for the clubs where I am Match Director.


    NEW SANCTIONED MATCH: I am pleased to advertise the Chesapeake Cup Tier-2 Sanctioned Match at Sanners Lake in Lexington Park, MD on Feb 5-6, 2015. This will be a CCP/BUG ONLY match, will cost ONLY $30, be about 150 rounds, 10 stages, and will be a lot of fun, even if it's cold. https://practiscore.com/chesapeake-cup/register If you need a classifier for BUG or CCP, please contact your local MD or you are welcome to attend the Sat, Nov 28 classifier at Thurmont, MD.


    SAFETY OFFICERS: The member database is still being updated with your SO/CSO status. Please give it until Nov 30. If you still have not received the update, please let me know. I also have a stack of certificates for new SO's that I am putting in the mail in the near future. If you failed to recertify and need to get recertified, please email me and I will see what I can do.


    RULES CLARIFICATIONS: A new set of rules clarifications will be showing up in the near future. This will include clarifications about the Sig320 among many others. Please keep a watch on the link: http://members.idpa.com/Rules/Home

    I did some research to buy insurance on my firearms collection. If you don't have insurance on your firearm consider Eastern Insurance: $126/year for $40,000 coverage all firearms, $100 deductible, guns replaced at market value: https://www.easterninsurance.com/ins...arms-insurance
    The underwriter is an NRA supporter and rifle shooter and collector.



    I have copied a great drill below.
    __________________________________________________ ___________
    CONCEALED CARRY MISDIRECTION DRY FIRE PRACTICE DRILL
    Thanks to Gabe White on Pistol Forum


    Misdirection Draws Dry

    This is going be a dry practice drill that almost everyone can participate in regardless of range restrictions. You will need your pistol, holster, concealment, a wallet or similar object, target, and a safe direction.

    At bare minimum, verify gun is unloaded, have no live ammo anywhere in the dry practice area, and keep muzzle in a safe direction. But there is more you can do to ensure safety in dry practice. Please also read Robust Dry Practice Safety Principles and Procedure following the drill description.

    Designed by Gabe White
    Target: Any silhouette target
    Range: Shooter's choice
    Rounds: 0

    We are going to practice creating opportunity when facing a time deficit, then rapidly transitioning into moving, drawing, and shooting.

    Complete as many cycles of the following drill as you want, until you get physically or mentally tired of it. It is fine to break the drill up over multiple sessions. Instead of doing a certain number of repetitions, just keep track of how much time you spend doing the drill.

    One cycle of the drill is:

    A. Start with your hands either hanging naturally at sides or in a surrender-type position. Simultaneously take one or two lateral steps and draw. Press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target. No misdirection, just explosively move-draw-shoot.

    B. Start with your hands in a surrender-type position. Beg and plead for your life. After a few seconds of pleading, and at a moment of your choice, explosively take one or two lateral steps and draw. Press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target.

    C. Start with your hands in a surrender-type position. Feign compliance by slowly reaching for your wallet (or other object you have put where you keep your wallet, if you want to use something else.) Once the wallet is in your hand and you have your hand in front of you, simultaneously throw the wallet at the target's face while taking one or two lateral steps and draw. Press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target. When you throw the wallet, don't telegraph it by winding up or cocking your hand back. Throw it non-telegraphically, a lot like throwing a shot put.

    D. Think of a phrase that might cause mental friction in the adversary. This can be a question, it can be something that doesn't make sense - anything to grab part of their mind for a moment. Questions and statements that are plausibly specific to the adversary can work well. A few examples: "I have $2000 in my pocket, is that enough?" "Do you want my car keys too?" "Hey I was at the game with your brother!" "How many times does the shoulder thing go up?" Once you have decided what you are going to say (canned phrases need to be figured out and practiced ahead of time, and improvisation must be practiced in FOF/scenarios with real people), start with your hands either hanging naturally at sides or in a surrender-type position, and make your statement or ask your question. Give just a very brief moment for their mind to start attaching to your words. Explosively step to the side, draw, and press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target.

    E. Start with your hands in a surrender-type position and acting nervous. Feign compliance by reaching for your wallet (or other object you have put where you keep your wallet, if you want to use something else.) Once the wallet is in your hand and you have your hand in front of you, fumble (drop) the wallet onto the ground, and immediately take one or two lateral steps and draw. Press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target.

    F. Start with your hands either hanging naturally at sides or in a surrender-type position. Look past the threat target as if there were someone behind them. Say something to that invisible person. A few examples: "Not now!" "No, don't do it!" "Officer, no!" You might also have wide eyes or shake your head. Convey that you are alarmed about something that is behind the adversary. Give just a very brief moment for their mind to begin attaching to your words or for them to look away from you. Explosively move, draw, and press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target.

    G. Start with an object in one of your hands (practice with both strong and support hands.) Your hands can be hanging at sides (as if car keys), in front of your torso (as if holding a drink), or at some surface (wall, table, wherever - as if manipulating some object.) Simultaneously throw the object at the target's face while taking one or two lateral steps and draw. Press a dry shot to either the COM or CNS of your dry fire target. When you throw the object, don't telegraph it by winding up or cocking your hand back. Throw it non-telegraphically from wherever your hand happens to be.

    Considerations:
    Be careful with the verbalization if you are practicing in a place where there may be people unaware of what you are doing who might hear the verbalization and call 911 or otherwise intervene. You can probably mitigate this simply by verbalizing fairly quietly, which goes along with the verbalization in this drill.

    Two of the most important elements of this drill:
    Misdirect/distract first, then move and engage. Make sure you do one, then the other, and not both at the same time.
    Reduce the time and friction you have when transitioning from talking or whatever misdirection/distraction you were doing, into explosive action.

    Please report: gun, holster, and concealment garment used, amount of time you devoted to the drill, and anything you noticed during the drill.

    Training with firearms is an inherently dangerous activity. Be sure to follow all safety protocols when using firearms or practicing these drills. These drills are provided for information purposes only. Use at your own risk.

    Robust Dry Practice Safety Principles and Procedure (the closer you follow this, the fewer opportunities you will have to ND)

    Principles:
    Allow no distractions – focus exclusively on the task at hand
    Keep muzzle in a safe direction
    Use correct trigger finger discipline
    Verify no live ammo in gun, on person, or in the dry practice area
    Use dedicated dry practice targets that are put away until you consciously choose to begin dry practice, and taken down when you consciously end dry practice
    Use dedicated dry practice magazines and dummy rounds/inert training cartridges that stay in the dry practice area (if you use any magazine or cartridges)

    Procedure:
    Unload gun in a location other than the dry practice area
    Leave live ammo, and magazines with live ammo, completely outside the dry practice area
    Enter the dry practice area
    Verify gun is unloaded, that any magazines do not contain live ammo, and that any cartridges present are inert/dummy cartridges
    Consciously choose to begin dry practice
    Put up dry practice targets
    Do your dry practice
    Take down dry practice targets and put them away
    Consciously choose to end dry practice
    Exit the dry practice area and do something unrelated for a few minutes
    Return gun to location and condition of your choosing
