Two words strike fear in the hearts of IDPA shooters, and they are 'Kitty' and 'Terry'. Stage 7 is called 'Lions' and was designed by Terry Burba and Kitty Richards so you could – apparently – shoot some lions at the Sheetz gas station while pumping gas. We don't understand it either but have learned to never question the mad genius of these two. Stage 7 is sponsored by GLOCK.

CSO: Your CSO for this stage will be Terry Burba.

SCENARIO: While pumping gas at the Sheetz station near the zoo, three escaped lions attack Kitty. Save her!
