    One of my mistakes in shooting sports is I wanted a specific firearm over one I shot well. Colt Gold Cup vs a Sig 220 surplus in one case so see what you shoot well. The 220 and Viktor are two hindsight pistols. I really want a CZ Shadow but... Ive shot Sig's really well. Not fired a shadow yet...
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    The gun that fits your hand just right is the one to be using. All the rest of what you need to do for DVC flows naturally when you have that right.

    I've held other guns that were great guns technically but just didn't sit right in a paw my size. You need a trigger and a safety that sit exactly where you need them and a grip that fills your hand without any awkwardness.

    Best to find a gun store that'll let you hold different ones, close your eyes and think about how they fit. I've even run into a guy behind the counter who said "close your eyes and I'll hand you different guns, that way you're not thinking about brands and reputations and prices".

    That in turn leads you into some particular IPSC division. (Do make sure you end up with something IPSC-valid, not a .22 or such!)

    You also want to choose a firearm that has IPSC accessories available. We've had customers that purchase less popular firearms and then wonder why no holster is available or they can't find magazine base pads, spare parts etc.

    I also could not find any ref to pouch placement. I wonder if that means chest rigs are also acceptable.

    It sure seems like the rules allow you have have your pouches anywhere, even on the gun itself:

    5.2.4 Ammunition and speed loaders must be carried or worn on the competitor or mounted to the firearm in safely
    designed pouches, pockets or other suitable retention devices, unless otherwise specified in the written stage
    briefing.

    You're at a minimum going to get frowned at hard if you have ammunition carried on the firearm before load-and-make-ready or don't remove it at the end of the course-of-fire.

    I think there's the assumption you're carrying PCC magazines on the same belt rig you use for your pistol, since there doesn't seem to be a route for PAL-not-RPAL holders to get into IPSC without the pistol-centric Black Badge course. But the PCC rulebook is interestingly ambiguous about this.

    Is an M&P allowed in Production if it has an Apex trigger?
    Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.

    You’re allowed aftermarket triggers in production now but it still has to meet the minimum trigger pull weight.

    18.4 Aftermarket springs and trigger assemblies are permitted.

    The minimum trigger pull must either be 2.27kg (5lbs.) for the first shot fired and no restriction for subsequent
    shots fired, or 1.36kg (3lbs.) for every shot fired.

    Question: Are certain guns better for the sport than others?

    Answer: Yes. Certain guns are more popular in various divisions because they are more ideally suited to the sport. This can be because they have less recoil due to being heavier, have better triggers from the factory (thus easier to be accurate) and other factory features like easier to operate safeties, magwells etc. The other thing to consider is the aftermarket support for that firearm. The more popular models will have many different holsters and other accessories available. You also will want spare parts for competition. Some models and brands are almost impossible to find spare parts for.

    What I normally tell customers is that if you are have not yet purchased a firearm, then definitely try to seek out and get your hands on the more IPSC suited models. Maybe someone at the local club can let you handle the gun and try the trigger etc. If you already have a firearm that can be used for your division, try the sport first and see if you like it. If you fall in love with it, then you can look at purchasing a more ideal firearm. If you don't end up liking it, then you are not out any extra money.
