    With sportshooter.com down these last few months, I lost my best resource for downloading stage ideas. I've pretty much used most of the stages on the IDPA website.

    Do you guys know of any good stage websites for IDPA and/or 3-Gun stages?

    You can use ours.
    www.udpl.net

    Go to the results page. For most of the matches, especially the 3guns, you can access the COF sheet by clicking on the stage results header. The PDF files with the really lousy handwriting and bad drawing skills are the ones I created.

    Your best resource is on top of your shoulders.

    If you didn't have a match that day, what would you be doing instead? :)
    Going on a hike?
    Washing your car?
    Hanging laundry out to dry?
    Camping?
    Hitting up the quick-stop?
    Sitting around your house?

    I've designed stages around every one of those scenarios.

    A little imagination is all ya need.

    You can borrow some of ours. Some of these are member-submitted and others borrowed from elsewhere.

    Take a look at www.stageexchange.com. It's primarily USPSA/IPSC, but it should at least give you some inspiration.

    When I used to run matches....

    I used three 'sources':

    1. Replication of an actual event, like the CHP shootout in the early '70s; or the recent attack on the church meeting in Chicago. Also, replication of actual circumstances that did not result in deadly physical force, but might have done. Sort of a 'what if' game.

    2. Replication of a movie scene. I once used the final shootout in "The Shootist" for a cowboy stage.

    3. A 'test' of a particular skill or skills. The "El Presidente" stage is a test of multiple target acquisition and reloading ability.

    Look in the various news agencies for scenarios. You will have to clean them up for safety (unless you have a range where one may shoot 270 degrees...) Use props; chairs, desks, walls, whatever. Not to be discounted is a small task prior to shooting, like turning over a paper to read a number; that number being the first target to shoot in a series.

    Avoid thirty round bursts and multiples reloads.... thanks...
