Due to the overwhelming response and huge registration numbers for the initial state championship matches for Revolver, Single Stack, PCC, L10, and Carry Optics, we have decided to increase capacity and expand the number of days for the Open, Limited, and Production matches to meet this ever increasing demand.
In addition, we have secured some very generous title sponsorships and prizes and will be changing the names of two of the matches as a result.
The 2017 Mississippi Production State Championship will be held June 24-25th, 2017. It will be shot in one day, with either a Saturday or Sunday option. The match will be limited to 120 competitors. More information will be released with the official match announcement on February 28th.
The 2017 CK Arms Mississippi Open State Championship will be held July 22-23rd, 2017. It will also be a one day match with the option to shoot on Saturday or Sunday. The match will be limited to 120 competitors. More information will be released with the official match announcement on March 28th.
The 2017 Freedom Gunworks Mississippi Limited State Championship will be held September 23-24th, 2017. It will also be a one day match with the option to shoot on Saturday or Sunday. The match will be limited to 120 competitors. More information will be released with the official match announcement on May 30th.
We want to thank everyone for the amazing support, both the competitors and our sponsors.
See you at the matches!
Registration is open for the February USPSA Pistol Match at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg. This month’s event will have at 6 stages, including a classifier.
I asked you guys last month what you thought about January’s match having more stages, more steel, and a higher overall round count. For those that responded, the overwhelming response was that ya’ll loved it and wanted more of it. Our stage design officer heard you – six stages, four stages with steel (29 total pieces and one stage alone has 13), and a round count right at 150. 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.
I want to give a special thank you in advance to Bill Jackson from the Poplarville Club, who will be filling in for me at this month’s match. As most of you know, he’s way better at this stuff than I am, so you guys are in excellent hands!

POST-MATCH JUNIOR CLINIC:
At the conclusion of the match, a guest instructor is going to lead a FREE seminar on range 5 which will be stage 4 from the match, going over topics ranging from how to get started in the sport, to safety basics, shooting tips, and an opportunity to shoot stages from the actual match several times with instructor feedback. We’ll also be able to answer parents questions about their child participating in the sport, and addressing any concerns they may have. Need not participate in that mornings match, and can even show up with a rimfire gun to run stage or no gun at all. Guest instructor this month is Gerwin Henn. The clinic will last around an hour. Need not be a junior to attend. Beginners of any age very welcome!
See you at the match!
There is a minor change to the scores posted earlier. It was discovered that Roger Henn was scored in minor instead of major. When this was corrected, he jumped from 7th to third. There is no change to the division winners but a small group of people moved down one position. The updated scores are on Practiscore and USPSA now.
We had a near record turnout today with 36 shooters enjoying the unseasonably warm February day to get in a little shooting. There were 6 stages, which seemed to challenge people more than I expected. We had three 30+ rounders, two speed shoots where many got tripped up and a tricky 6 round classifier. If you hit your draw and first shots there, you scored well. If not, then it likely won’t count against you! The only downside to the day was three DQs. They happen but we always hate to see them.
The match moved along at a great pace with the first squad finishing around 11:30 and the last was done before Noon. Once again, we had GREAT help getting everything picked up. Your match staff really appreciates it. Please also thank Tom and Bob for their help in designed stages and setting up. I keep telling you, they are good for something!
When the dust settled, the overall winner shot more consistently than everyone else. With a large flock of open shooters, it is a tad surprising to see the overall winner come from Limited, but when you’re hot, you’re hot. Congratulations to Read more…

After two months of rainouts, we finally got some great weather for 3-gun. It was unexpected for February but certainly welcome. The stages were challenging, to say the least. We had a great turnout, with 22 shooters trying to pace themselves over the four stages of fire. With such tough stages, we didn’t actually fire the last shot until almost 3:30 PM, and that made for a looooooog day!
While stages 1 and 2 were reasonably normal and were negotiated by most shooters with just double digit times, only 2 shooters were under 100 seconds (raw) for stage 3. This one proved exceptionally challenging, with only 6 shooters going penalty free. Stage 4 was in the gully and the weather was great for it, but it was still difficult. Although only two guns were shot, the rifle part required a minimum of 49 shots for those double-tapping the paper and one solitary steel plate. The run was from the beginning to the end with targets along the whole way. The times were quicker than stage 3, but it required significantly more adrenaline. This was the one stage that just wasn’t competitive. Justin managed to literally run away from the field with a time of just over 50 seconds, with second place 14 seconds behind.
That kind of performance led to yet another win for Read more…
