I started shooting IHMSA, as it was the most active in my area. (Central Wisconsin) Now that I'm located in Southwest KS, I'll shoot whatever I can find!! If you have a choice, I'd say shoot both sports, but gear up with 10" barrels on your production pistols so you conform to the rules of either IHMSA or NRA!

I always preferred IHMSA for long range and NRA for Hunter Pistol, but when NRA suddenly changed the Hunter Pistol Course distance to the Chickens, it annoyed a lot of people including me, due to the need to change Range impact areas, etc. Thereafter, I only shot IHMSA.

I started out shooting with IHMSA, but all the affiliated clubs around here have folded up. Our gun club is NRA affiliated and we run matches mostly based on NRA rules, so that's what is available in Albuquerque at the moment.

The most important aspect of this signature line is that you don't realize it doesn't say anything significant until you are just about done reading it & then it is too late to stop reading it....

Well I also shoot both.
Right on on the 40m chicks and the 10" vs. 12" barrel and you got Ready vs. Load
I can shoot NRA SB and BB Hunter pistol 50 miles from my house.
it's little over 3hr. away to shoot IHMSA BB and SB Jackson miss.
To shoot IHMSA Field pistol/small bore it's 5 1/2 hrs. Gainsville Ga.
I'm not sure were I can shoot LR NRA pistol ?

IHMSA here. Our club used to have dual sanction. We done it to appease a few shooters. They shot a couple times and quit coming. So, we dropped NRA sanction.

From what I have seen everybody wants to be "tactical" and silhouette just isn't it. I have to beg and plead to get people to come to the silhouette matches, but the action pistol, three gun, precision rifle, etc. are just booming. Folks want fast and furious, more like a live action video game I suppose. Maybe they feel the need to get ready for the zombies or something, but they sure don't want to shoot silo matches any more.
