September 2012 Poplarville pistol match results

Break out the leather jackets! Winter is here! Well, not really, but it was 65 when we arrived at the range to set up. The whole day ended up as nearly perfect, as the temperature was moderate and the humidity reasonable. The one dark cloud today was actually a swarm of love bugs. They were as thick as flies at a roadkill and very annoying.

We had a decent turnout, but not great. There were 15 shooters, but we expected more with the weather being so nice. We shot 5 stages and got done at a reasonable time. There was drama from the beginning as Michael McDonald rattled off a blistering 4.67 second run on Stage 2. Unfortunately, gun problems prevented him for engaging most of the targets, so the time really didn’t matter. The results weren’t even very close for the top spot. The overall winner was…

Wayne Alcock, who also took Limited by a big margin. Wayne was shooting Minor so it was that much more impressive against second place Limited winner, Josh Benton. The aforementioned Michael McDonald is so good that even with zeroing one whole high-point stage, he still took 4th overall and first in Production. The Limited 10 winner was Nate Taylor, returning after a bit of a layoff. Gerald The Wheel Benton took Revolver and Bob Brandt topped the Single Stack shooters. To see all the scores, click the score sheet at the right.

Many thanks to everyone for helping set up and especially to Bob who designed his stage.  We also had great help in tearing down.

The shotgun match results will be posted within the hour.
