Pearlington match Sunday

Welcome to the new web site.  I am looking forward to keeping shooters informed as to what is going on for the Pearlington match.  I plan on having

  • Absolutely gorgeous weather
  • Five stages

The classifier will be 99-08 Melody Line.  Set up will be Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm, anybody that wants to help will be much appreciated.  Also, anybody with any stage ideas would be a great help.  I have been running this match since August of 1996, and I am running out of ideas.  Please send me your thoughts on some stages, or just come help set up what you want.  Hammer down @ 9am Sunday January 15th, hope to see you all there.


Poplarville work day (**Updated**)

January 8, 2012 4 comments

Sorry, everyone. The work day is actually Saturday, February 18, 2012 and the makeup is February 25. I had Sundays on the brain when I looked at the calendar.

Every year, Poplarville has a work day to clean up, fix up and generally improve the overall range.

While participation in the workday is entirely voluntary, we really could use your help, even if for just a few hours. We will be posting further information about what we need done and what you should bring, but if you can, put this on your calendar.

January 2012 SMPSA Shotgun match results

January 8, 2012 Leave a comment

The results for the shotgun have been posted. We had 6 shooters hang around for the scattergun fun, and we shot 3 decent stages of fun. Today was birdshot and slugs. Once again, if you can load your shotgun rapidly, you do well.

The match winner was Cameron Thompson by over 14 seconds. But, best of all, two of the new pistol shooters also stuck around to shoot shotgun as well. Thanks, guys!

The final scores are posted here.

January 2012 SMPSA pistol match results (**Updated**)

The scores have been edited and updated to reflect Cameron shooting Minor. He was originally scored as Major. He still won Limited, though. Sorry folks, it was a long day.

The pistol results are in (finally)! But, they are subject to the following. The score sheet for Nick Saucier for Stage 3 was messed up. It is incomplete and unusable, so it hasn’t been included in the scores. Nick shot Limited, and shot well, but the loss of all the points from a stage certainly affected the Limited scores. He wouldn’t have won, but he might have moved up one spot. Nevertheless, the rest of the scores were respectable. (Update: Nick’s score sheet for stage 3 has been deciphered. His scores are now correct, along with the rest of the match scores).

We had 15 shooters for the first match of the year, which is decent, but not great. We did have three brand new shooters with us today (Gus, Reed and Tony). They did great, especially for new shooters. They shot safely and displayed excellent pistol handling skills. If they continue to shoot, their times will no doubt improve. Thanks for coming out, guys. I hope you come back next month. Read more…

Poplarville will host the monthly USPSA pistol match and afternoon shotgun match on January 8, 2012. The weather should be unusually warm for January, so it should be comfortable, for a change.

USPSA news

In case you hadn’t heard, the USPSA election for president went to a runoff, and in a bit of a surprise, Phil Strader beat out Michael Voigt for President. To see the results with the numbers click here.

In other USPSA news, the board of directors has voted on new rule changes to take effect in January of 2013. Rules for Limited guns are to change slightly (click here) along with similar changes to Limited-10 (click here). All this really does is remove the requirement for manufacturers to produce a certain number of guns before it could be legal to shoot in the Limited and L-10  divisions.

However, the proposed changes for Production and Single Stack are causing a bit of a stink among those shooters. Read more…

More props on the way

January 3, 2012 1 comment

Happy New Year, Shooters! Hopefully, Santa Claus brought you all the guns and supplies you hoped for. He was good to us in Poplarville. He brought us a bunch of new commercial-grade, steel target stands, several auto-resetting mini-poppers for the rifle matches and, best of all, everyone’s favorite, a Texas Star! This one is made by MGM Targets, and is called a “Whirley-Gig” by them, but a star is a star.

And speaking of new props, please let us know what else you would like to see. Leave a comment below if you want to suggest something for the club to build or acquire.

Sometime this spring, we will be having a work day at the range in Poplarville to clean up and rebuild the permanent structures, including the “house” on the west side of the drive, and the Gerald area on the east side. Our plan is to significantly enhance these facilities so we can provide the best stages you will ever shoot.
