Poplarville 3-gun **UPDATE**

August 27, 2013 Leave a comment

Sunday, 7:00 AM: It is hard to believe, but the road in is actually dry. So, with Karen fizzling, we are on. The radar looks good for at least a few hours, so come on out.

Saturday, 7:40 PM: Just got back from the range. Everything is set up except for stapling up the targets. There was no rain as of 6 PM, so the road is in great shape. However, check back no later than 7 AM for the final decision. We will wait to see what Karen does tonight.

Saturday, 1:15 PM: So far, we have missed any significant bad weather. There was a line of rain that moved through the range a short time ago, but it appears clear for the rest of the day. We will be heading up there around 3 PM to set up stages for tomorrow’s match. At this point, the match is still on.  However, we will not make a final decision until tomorrow morning due to the tropical storm.  We suggest checking here before you leave the house. A final decision will be made no later than 7 AM on Sunday.

Friday, 7:30 AM: The approaching tropical storm may cause us to cancel the match this weekend. We have NOT yet cancelled, but please check back throughout Saturday. We suggest checking here before coming to the range on Sunday for final notice about the match. Even if the storm passes on Saturday, any significant rainfall can make the road in impassible. 

The South Mississippi Practical Shooting Association (Poplarville) will resume our 3-gun matches on October. We take the summer off because of the heat, and would normally resume in September, but this year, Labor Day weekend coincides with the first Sunday, so we will not shoot then. We plan to shoot our first 3-gun this fall on October 6. If you haven’t shot 3-gun before, then check out what you need to know by clicking here.

Weather was the big story in August. With Harrison County flooding from all night rain, many of the regulars from the East decided we weren’t going to shoot. But we did. And we had a darn good match, to boot. We didn’t get any rain during the match (at the range), and the temperature was moderated by persistent cloud cover, so it was pleasant by August standards.

We had 16 shooters show up to shoot four great stages. The overall match winner was… Read more…

Another August, another hot day. Despite the occasional clouds and eventual rain, it was hot today! And in some cases, that applied to the shooting as well. There were some stellar performances, and then there were the ones where you just want to hit the delete button.

We had a good turnout with 20 shooters competing. We had one new shooter to the club today who managed to walk away with a division win as well. The 5 stages were just about the right amount of challenge to be easy to set and score but challenging enough to make you think. In the end, the results may surprise some. Our overall winner today was… Read more…

BPSA August Pistol Match Results

This month’s match will be remembered as a five great stages, well worth the August heat and rain.  This month we had 46 entries and as hot and wet as it was, everyone had their usual good time.  We tried very hard this month to give you a good combination of “Slow and Accurate” and “Run and Gun”.  We are going to do our best to make the match an even challenge for everyone’s strengths….and weaknesses.

This was the first month we scored the match completely electronically.  Each scorekeeper used a Nook and all the scores were compiled together at the end of the match.  Although there were a few bumps getting started, once everyone got the hang of it, the match went surprisingly smooth.  All in all, this will go down as another great match and it can all be attributed to you.  Thanks for all your help and support.

Congratulations to this month’s winners….
