It has been a while since anyone has posted on the IDPA forum so I thought I would try and kick up a few postings by asking, "What are some of the best/favorite scenarios you have shot?"
Mine was at our clubs annual Day/Night match last year. You started at position 1 standing next a car with your hands on the roofline. There are 3 BGs behind you and 3 poppers to your left staggered away from the front fender of the car. On the buzzer you turn, draw, engage 3 BG in Tactical Sequence, ie, 1-1-2-1-1, move to cover at the rear of the car and engage the 3 poppers as you see them from around the car. Moonless night and the only illumination was from the red and blues of the local Chief of Police's car. It sure gave me an appreciation of what LEO's would have to contend with if forced into a shooting at night, the strobe effect of the lights makes even static targets seem like they are moving on you.

We had an indoor match recently, one of the stages involved engaging 3 bad guys from the kitchen window (20 yards shots) tactical reload and rush to the barn door... as you break cover the lights go out and 2 flashing rotating beacons and a stobe light(simulating police cars) illumunates 3 more bad guys holding your son hostage.
It was quite entertaining... I'll try to post a link of the video. This was a new shooters first match.
