May 2017 Brothers n Arms USPSA Pistol Match

May 21, 2017 Leave a comment

Registration is open for the May USPSA Pistol Match at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg. This month’s event will have at least 5 stages, including  a classifier.

Though it is still technically spring, summer temperatures are already starting to creep in on us.  That being said, we have added some new awnings to make sure there is ample shade for everyone at each stage.  We have also had a few requests to add Pistol Caliber Carbine to our match and the decision has been made to do so.  You’ll find it now as an option on the registration form.  If you are shooting PCC, it goes without saying that you should be familiar with and clear on the rules in the addendum.

Setup starts at 7:00 am and registration/check-in ends at 8:30 am.  No walk-ons after 8:30, no exceptions.  There will be a new shooters meeting at 8:30 and a mandatory safety meeting at 8:45. The match starts promptly at 9:00 am.

Payment will be due upon arrival.  If you are a member of the Brothers N Arms Range, $15 will be due.  Otherwise, the entry fee is $20.  To register, just click here  or on the big button below.

BPSA May 2017 3GN Multigun Results!

We had 35 shooters come out for our the May 3GN monthly multigun match. This was our first 3GN affiliated multigun match, but the learning curve was easy. We also offered some custom pistol only and PCC only divisions for anyone that wanted to try them. Rain was in the forecast, but it never came, and it ended up being a nice day.

Now onto the action:

Stage 1, Steel Gallery, was a shotgun only speed course that required a slug shot on a drop Turner, and featured 12 poppers. No surprise here, but unlimited shotgun guys lead the way here with the higher capacity, with Jeret Howard setting the pace at 11.83, with Clayton Daigle right behind him at 12.18. For the Practical guys who required a reload, Daniel Luxich set the pace with 12.55. For the pistol/PCC only crowd, not having to run the shotgun made a big difference as Roger Henn was out frinybhere with a 6.73.

Stage 2, A New Twist, is a 3GN multigun classifier that required engaging three paper with rifle and then six poppers with pistol. Daniel Luxich set the bar high here in Practical and overall with a 7.56 run. In Pistol only, not gun transition was required and that propelled Roger Henn to a 5.64 run.

Stage 3, Your Way, was a rifle or pistol choice on a 11 target field course. Jeret Howard lead the pack here again with a 11.63 run, with Roger Henn right behind him in Pistol Only with a 11.63.

Stage 4. Tiger Balm, was a big field course that required all three guns. This was the make or breaker for most people’s matches today. Dustin Stevens laid down a smoking run of 33.04 to lead the way in Practical and Overall, with Jeret Howard right behind him in unlimited with a 33.83. In the Pistol Only category, Roger Henn lead the way with a 24.44.

With the final results came in, here is how it stacked up:

Jeret Howard made to switch from USPSA Limited to 3GN Unlimited and it paid off, with both the unlimited and overall match win with a total time of 68.07.

Ivan Deroche was next Overall, and first in Practical with a 78.64. Daniel Luxich was right behind him at 79.24.

Calvin Lindsay took the win in Heavy Sport, and Jim Francis won the Unlimited PCC division.

In the Pistol Only category, Roger Henn took the win over his dad Gerwin. Ken Hablitzel was third.

In PCC Only, Bryant Willett edged out Gerald Benton, with Roger Follette and Ronald Hinton 3rd & 4th.

Geneva Williams won Rimfire Rifle Only.

We thank everyone who can out to shoot today, especially those who helped setup and make the match happen. It was a big team effort today.

Reminder that the next June 2017 3GN match will be single gun Pistol/PCC, and then in July we’ll be back to our regular schedule of 3gun matches.

See you at the next match!

May 2017 Poplarville pistol match results

May 14, 2017 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionMother’s Day is usually a light match for us. For the past 7 years, the May match has averaged just 17 shooters. Today was a reflection of the renewed interest in the Poplarville club over the past year or so, and we saw 37 shooters competing. Quite a few were shooting a different division than they normally do. Most of those were practicing for the upcoming Mississippi State Limited 10/PCC/Carry Optics Championship match in Biloxi in two weeks. But everyone had a great time!

We shot just 5 stages today, so we could all get home early. The stages were supposed to be quick and easy, but a couple of them turned out to be a bit more challenging that expected. Those regular Open/Limited shooters practicing for the L10 match found that reloading all the time isn’t exactly fun or even easy. When shooting Open or Limited, one reload is the norm for most stages. Today, having to reload up to 4 times was a great test for what may come. It also pointed out just how little practice we get doing this on the clock. Shooters, you are welcome!

Ok, let’s move on to why you’re all here. Today’s match winner is no stranger to the top spot. However, he did it the hard way today. The overall winner and Limited 10 winner was  Read more…

May 2017 Poplarville 3-Gun match results

May 7, 2017 1 comment

3gun banner composite

We tied the record turnout for 3-gun, at least in the modern era, with 25 shooters actually showing up and shooting. The weather was spectacular and the stages equally as fine. The stages were reasonably balanced but none were pushovers.  All were challenging in their own way. Some figured them out and some didn’t.

The match scores were a bit delayed today because we had lots to pick up and no one waited around for the scores, so I just waited until I got home to actually combine everything. I wasn’t surprised at the results, and I don’t think anyone will be, either. On top of the heap, once again, was Read more…
