    Have been thinking about try my hand(s). I have read both web sites and have a couple questions for anyone that has experience;

    1. I believe IDPA is closer to real world and USPSA is more speed related or sport than IDPA, correct.

    2. I have seen a club near Brunswick for USPSA, Coastal Area Practical Shooters club and Low Country I D P A Club near Hinesville (web link not working) does anyone have any experience with these two?

    They are both games. In both you can use a stock firearm. IDPA has rules to try to keep the 'race gun drift' limited (Stock firearm and holster.)

    The USPSA is more "sport" oriented than IDPA.
    There are usually more rounds fired and more mag changes per stage.
    There are also less restriction on reloading and completing the course of fire:
    You can choose your own target order in USPSA; IDPA usually has a set course of fire.

    Low Country IDPA is supposed to be good. They shoot up in Springfield, nowhere near Hinesville.
