    1911 Competition

    Hi All,
    New to this forum, anyway I was thinking of holding a 1911 only based shooting competition, kind of IDPA/Steel type of match do any of you think this would be of interest.

    Regards,
    DB

    I think that would depend entirely on how many 1911 shooters/competitors there are in your area. If you are in an area that already has large, sanctioned matches, the 1911 shooters are probably already competing against each other in the single stack division and might not be interested in another competition to burn up ammo.

    On the other hand, some might regard it as practice.

    I've been running an annual single stack match for the last few years at my club. Since the club is affiliated with both IDPA and USPSA, the match is sort of a hybrid, in terms of scoring and stage design. I schedule it on a weekend that no other local clubs are hosting matches, to help ensure that if anyone wants to shoot, they have to come to my match. I've been drawing 40-50 shooters, and everyone appears to have fun.
