April 2012 3-Gun match reminder

March 31, 2012 Leave a comment

The monthly 3-gun match will be held on April 1, 2012 at the Poplarville range (no foolin’!). Bring the usual assortment of rifle, pistol and shotgun and a bunch of ammo for each. There’s just no telling what you might find.

Also, April is the month to renew your membership in the club. Starting this month, the fee for non-members will go up to $15.00, while the member rate will remain at $10.00. Your membership runs from April to March and gets you a $5.00 discount on ALL matches, plus a key to the range. You also support the club and help us buy more props for better shooting. If you shoot only 5 times a year, you will still benefit from joining.

March 2012 Pearlington match results

Well, another great day of shooting is history. Thanks to all that helped make this match work, without you this match would not get out of the starting blocks . We had some challenging stages and some fairly easy stages. Sorry for the mixup in stage 4 score sheets, seems I omitted 7 score sheets. I will take care of this on Monday so don’t call if you don’t see your score on stage 4 Madness. Read more…

March 2012 Pearlington match reminder **Special Classifier Match**

March 12, 2012 Leave a comment

The Pearlington club will hold its annual classifier match on Sunday, March 18, 2012. The entire match will consist of 6 different USPSA classifier stages. If you want to get your first classification or a classification in a new division, this is the match for you. You only need 6 classifier scores to get a ranking, so if you are new to the sport, you will be able to get a ranking before the Mississippi Classic in May. The match fee will increase to $15.00 because of the additional classifier stage fee for USPSA. Read more…

March 2012 SMPSA pistol match results

March 11, 2012 4 comments

Congratulations to the 22 shooters we had today. The match came off without any major hitches, and the weather was reasonably cooperative. It was alternately sunny, then cloudy, and always breezy, but thanks to a new stock of old brake rotors courtesy of Wayne, stands blowing over wasn’t an issue. One squad shot so hard that they broke two small poppers off their bases. In reality, the poppers were pretty much worn out and just died. We had one unfortunate disqualification, though.

The scores were recorded pretty well, too. There were a few math errors (easily fixed) and a couple of shooters who forgot to number their score sheets or numbered them wrong, but no missing times or shot counts coming up short. When the smoke cleared, and the results computed, there was a surprising winner at the top.

March 2012 Poplarville pistol match reminder

March 10, 2012 1 comment

The monthly USPSA pistol match will be held on Sunday, March 11, 2012. Don’t forget about the time change tomorrow morning. Daylight Saving Time goes into effect at 2:00 AM, Sunday, March 11 and that means if you don’t set your clock, you will be an hour late getting up for the match. If you are an hour late getting up for the match, you will be an hour late arriving at the range. If you are an hour late arriving at the range, we will already be shooting without you. If we are already shooting without you, you will have to catch up. If you have to catch up, you will be rushed. If you are rushed, you will shoot like crap. Don’t shoot like crap. Set your clock ahead tonight!

2012 Mississippi Classic

March 6, 2012 Leave a comment

If you were planning on shooting the 2012 Mississippi Classic in Jackson in May, and you haven’t signed up yet, it’s too late to guarantee a spot. The match filled up on February 24. Apparently, a big Texas match for the same weekend was cancelled and a bunch of those shooters decided to come east. There is a waiting list, but there are likely to be lots of people waiting.
