“If you want to take a practical, high-value course, then I recommend GOAL’s Introduction to IDPA. Jon Green delivered a concise, informative discussion of the basics. Then, we headed out to the range for safety briefings, skill drills, and actual scenarios. Three experienced IDPA competitors taught me and my classmates some useful techniques and tactics. I got lots of help in improving my draw. Within a few hours, I was hooked. I attended the next match at Worcester Pistol & Rifle Club, and I will be joining IDPA soon. As a GOAL member, I paid only $40 for the course, but I think it was worth hundreds more.”
