I'd personally love to do both, preferably the less expensive one first, and the more expensive one later down the road.
I'm not against it, I just don't see the need for it. You need permits for firearms and safe ranges, hence IPSC. You don't need to have organizations to be able to coordinate meets that individuals or small groups could do by themselves.
If enough people wanted one I'd support it on principle, but it just doesn't seem necessary to me.

$30 to the trainer, $60 to the govn't. I know I did bad at math, but I honestly thought that $30 plus $60 equaled $90. Boy am --I-- dumb.
30 bucks for a trainer? My restricted/non restricted courses cost about 200 bucks, and that was a discounted rate.
