A dear friend has left the range…

April 17, 2021 6 comments

This morning, I found out that one of my best friends from our local shooting world passed away last night. Gerald Benton was one of the very first people I met when I was introduced to practical shooting way back in the late 1990’s. That was at the original Deep South Shooters Association matches at the Gulfport police range. His passing deeply saddened me because he was truly one of the nicest people I have met while shooting. He was always involved in not just shooting but also in helping set up at most of the local matches not just for years, but for decades. He helped me get started. If you shot any of the matches, including Gulfport, Poplarville, Biloxi and Pearlington, any time since the mid 1990’s, you probably knew Gerald, too. He shot everything, USPSA, 3-Gun, Steel Challenge and even outlaw matches.

As sad as his passing is, I have tried to think back to the good times I had shooting with Gerald both locally and at the Mississippi Classic in Jackson. The picture above is from the 2014 MS Classic where Gerald was the senior member (at least, USPSA competition-wise) of our squad. If you aren’t too new to our sport, then you probably recognize most of these folks, as well. In case you don’t know everyone, here’s a who’s who…

Front row left to right – Mike Esposito, Michael Smith, Don Evans, Sean Benton, Bryant Willett

Back row left to right – Gerald Benton, Josh Benton, Steven Mosher, Bill Jackson, Chris Brown, Carter Brown, Lee Fraiser

I do not have any details for services that may be planned at this time. However, I will update this post when I have more information.

Gerald, thank you for all the help you gave me throughout the years. You will be greatly missed by your friends in the shooting community. Thank you for all the good times. May you rest in peace.

Bill Jackson

Biloxi USPSA Pistol match moves to 3rd Sunday of the month, starting in March.

March 3, 2021 Leave a comment

The Deep South Shooters Association monthly USPSA pistol match is moving to the third Sunday of the month, starting in March of 2021. Our next match will be March 21, 2021. We will stay on the third Sunday for the foreseeable future. Please mark your calendars appropriately.

Nick Brandt, who is the match director for both the Steel Challenge match and the USPSA match (club MS17 Brothers-n-Arms, dormant since last year) in Hattiesburg, will now hold both these matches on the same weekend, which will be the fourth full weekend of each month. This means Steel Challenge will be shot on Saturday and USPSA Pistol on Sunday of the same weekend at the Brothers N Arms range in Hattiesburg (same range as before). The Hattiesburg USPSA match will return to action on Sunday, April 25, 2021.

Steve Anderson USPSA Training Class in Slidell

February 22, 2021 Leave a comment

If you know who Steve Anderson is and haven’t taken his class, this is your chance. If you don’t know who he is, then this should be your first class. Steve is one of the best USPSA instructors on the planet. As host of the world famous That Shooting Show podcast, Steve teaches you how to practice properly and to maximize your training time while on the range. His book on Dry Fire was one of the first to document proven and effective techniques for developing your shooting skills while in the comfort of your own home. NOTE: This is not a beginners class or introduction to USPSA. You should be familiar with USPSA and the safety rules and have competed in at least a couple of local matches.

The two-day class will be held at Camp Villere in Slidell, LA on March 27, and 28, 2021. The cost is just $450. You should bring 800+ rounds of ammo but you probably won’t shoot that much. Class starts at 9 am each day. For more information, contact John Huber at 504.382.2329.

February 2021 Biloxi USPSA pistol match – *Classifier Match*

February 11, 2021 Leave a comment

Registration is open and slots are available for this month’s USPSA match, presented by the Deep South Shooters Association. The match will take place at the Coast Rifle and Pistol Club in Biloxi on February 28, 2021. Shooting begins at 9 AM. Please arrive no later than 8:30 AM to check in and pay, but earlier is always better.

This month, we will have a classifier match. There will be 5 to 6 classifier stages instead of regular field courses. This will allow anyone to get classified in a new division, or to possibly move up in your current division. Anyone will be allowed to shoot a second gun, but only if there are no more than 50 total shooters present. If you want to shoot a second gun, DO NOT register for the second gun. Instead, bring your second gun/rig to the match and we will register that entry the morning of the match, if there are no more than 50 shooters. The second gun will pay the full match fee (Junior second guns will pay $5).

The classifiers to be shot will be posted about one weeks before the match.

Juniors shoot first gun for free, CPRC members shoot for $15, all others shoot for $20. Second gun pays full match fee.
