I just picked up a new GP100 and was wondering if anyone uses .357 in USPSA or IDPA and what your rig set up is? I'd be interested in trying ICORE, but nothing here in the Buckeye State. I currently shoot both USPSA and IDPA using a 1911, but thought the use of a revolver in .357 might present an interesting challenge. I see many using .45acp revolvers but not many .357s.

Thanks for the thoughts.

I used to shoot USPSA with revolver but used .38s in my S&W 686. I was shooting Minor P.F. but the gun was so much more controllable that I was able to get good hits and shoot faster.

You only have to make 125 PF in IDPA SSR so you can use .38's unless you really really want to use .357's.

i' ve shot .357's once at a idpa match since it was my carry ammo . 38 sp is alot easier for follow up shots though . as for my rig i used a comp-tac locking papple holster and "shoot a moon "moon-clip carriers. Comp-tac is about the best holsters i have found for my revolvers and autos

The locking paddles are generally illegal for IDPA on most people. Depends on your body type though. The regular paddle is great though.
