I'd love to try my hand at PPC, but I haven't any idea how to start. I can't locate any clubs in my area, nor much information about the game at all.
Moreover, I'm not even sure if I'd be allowed shoot in a typical match -- I'm a civilian, and while I've heard that some clubs allow non-cops, many don't.
Anybody have any suggestions for me?
Without knowing you location I cannot suggest where you might shoot.
As for what you need to start, depending on class, any centerfire handgun of .38 cal/9mm or larger, 4+ magazines/speed loaders, a good holster and mag/speed loader pouch.
