First off great board. Secondly does anyone know of any PPC matches in Texas, specifically the central texas Austin area? I've recently become interested in PPC as a way to improve my revolver skills (and lets face it, if you can shot a revolver DA then anything else is cake). I've been trying to shoot the PPC course on my own, but I'm sure I'm screwing something up somewhere, and the course I've got is from the late 60's and I know it has changed since then. So getting out to an organised match would be great.
Onto the gear, if anyone has any suggestions for a beginner please share them. I've got a S&W model 15 4" and a S&W model 19 6", 4 Safariland comp II speed loaders and a double speed loader pouch. I've got one pair of Hogue monogrips that I swap around between pistols, and target stocks on them otherwise. I tend to point and shoot (in SA) the 19 better, probably due to the extra barrel weight, but the model 15 is much more broken in and I shoot it a better in DA. Which pistol would you guys recomend? Do I need more speedloaders?
What reducded sized targets correspond to what range and what distance (ie. 50% targets at 15 yds = 50 yd target, etc)? Also is the B-27 the correct target, a lot of the historical manuals and the like I have show the venerable K-2. I'd like to be able to get/make a set of reduced targets to dry fire the 1500 in my home.
Any training tips, tips on positional shooting, dealing with a revolver?
