What Gear Should I Buy?

The answer is none….. At least not at first. Once you have located a club to shoot your first match, hopefully you have tracked down someone to help you on your journey. Chances are that individual or other individuals at the club have gear you can use. It is a good idea to try out a lot of gear before you make any substantial purchases. This is a gear intensive sport, but starting out a new shooter can really shoot whatever you have, there is so much to learn that is really takes a while in the sport before your gear is what is getting in your way. So, in short, bring your bone stock M4, Remington 870 pump and any pistol you have.

What should I Expect at My First Match?

I tell people to expect to lose and more importantly to learn. Very few people perform well in their first match, even those with substantial firearms capabilities. The rules are unique to what most firearms enthusiasts have experienced and take time to get comfortable and even more time to become efficient. The game is meant to be a challenge and a skillset, like any other, requires work to be truly capable. Safety is the most important thing in your first match and every match after. This is especially important in your first matches as you are very unfamiliar with what you are being asked to do.

In conclusion, you are taking a step into a great hobby and past time with some great people. The game itself is multifaceted and can be complex and even frustrating at time, but the result is a stronger shooting skillset. Be open to input from credible resources, be willing to explore new ways of doing things and ask a lot of questions. Don’t make assumptions about rules or the best way to do things. Observe the best shooters and how they perform and prepare.
