February 2012 MCGPS match results!

February 19, 2012 Leave a comment

Another match is history, we had 31 shooters willing to shoot after a frog choker rain storm. Fortunately our range drains well and by 11am what little water we had dried up. There were 5 good stages thanks to the brain child of Bob Brandt. L10 was dominated by Kevin Walker. Revolver was bested by Robert (Lightnin) Konrady. High Single Stack was Joel Senia. High Open went to Brett Greene. Brian Dolly was High Limited and last but certainly not least was High Overall and High Production was Justin Myers. Read more…

Work day reminder **Cancelled**

February 15, 2012 Leave a comment

The work day scheduled for Saturday, February 18, 2012 has been cancelled due the weather. We are not rescheduling the work day at this time.

This Saturday, February 18, we will be at the range to clean up the place and regrade the shooting bays (thanks to Gerald). Works will start around 9 AM and probably last until mid-afternoon. If you can make it, bring gloves, trash bags, leaf rakes and something to eat. We will not be shooting, so please don’t expect to practice, at least this Saturday.

Right now, there is a 70% chance of rain on Saturday, so please check back here before coming out. We will post the status of the work day before 8 AM on Saturday morning.

February 2012 SMPSA rifle match results

February 12, 2012 1 comment

The rifle match was a quickie today, because we had just 5 shooters. We shot three of the pistol stages from the USPSA match (minus the steel) and were done in probably 30 minutes. Our match winner was Wayne Alcock, mostly due to his quick work in the pistol classifier (and the fact that he shot a major gun).

The results are here.

February 2012 SMPSA pistol match results

The match scores have been updated to reflect a mistake in the classifier score for Bo Gray. The match results did not change in Production division, but the percentages did.

If you wussed out and didn’t show up because it was “too cold”, you should be ashamed. It was a bit breezy, but by the time the Sun came up, it had warmed up to almost 40° and by the time the match ended, it was 50°. We did have 17 shooters who did think it would be worth it and we had a great match. We shot 5 stages, with lots of steel and the new MGM Whirly-Gig target (aka: Texas Star).

Things went pretty smoothly with no real hiccups in the stages or the scores. There were no bottlenecks or DQ’s. So, it was a great day. Let’s get to the results. Read more…

February 2012 SMPSA 3-gun match results

February 5, 2012 Leave a comment

The results are in! We had 13 shooters today (on SuperBowl Sunday) competing over 4 tough stages. The weather was a bit iffy in the morning, and the drive up the hill was a challenge for the early birds, but everyone made it in OK. It ended up a pretty nice day, weather-wise, too.

Before the scores, a brief explanation of the scoring. Each stage is scored by raw time plus penalty time. The shooter with the lowest total time is awarded 100 stage points. Every other shooter earns a percentage of the 100 points based on their performance, compared to the top shooter. The shooter’s total time is divided into the top shooter’s total time to get a percentage of the total available points.

The results aren’t too much of a surprise, but it was close. Read more…

Sunday, February 5, 2012, we will hold our monthly 3-gun match (weather permitting). Because it is on SuperBowl Sunday, we will try to be done at a reasonable hour, for you die-hard football fans. We will have many new props out for the first time, so be prepared. Bring plenty of all three types of ammo.
