September 2013 Pearlington pistol match results

Aside from someone forgetting to tell the weatherman that Summer is supposed to be pretty much done, it was a great match today. It was hotter than normal for this time of the year but we had 39 shooters with a pretty good mix in the divisions. Today was a go-fast day with lots of stages where you just needed to squeeze the trigger, fast and often. If your gun or ammo didn’t work perfectly and you couldn’t execute perfect reloads, then it was not your day. Four of the five stages were won with a hit factors of 10.0, 12.5, 10.5 and 11.5. Only the classifier was under 10. If you saw the front sight a lot, then you were probably too slow.

The overall winner took the match by a reasonably comfortable amount, but after that, they bunched up pretty well. The Overall match winner was Robert Jones who also won Limited. In Open, Bill Jackson beat the rest of the field and took second overall. Steve Lasavia was fourth overall and first in Single Stack. Once again, Production was highly competitive where Steven Mosher managed the most consistency and therefore won that division. And finally, Gerald won Revolver.

As always, your match staff appreciates the help in match setup and tear-down. We couldn’t do it without you. Next month, we are back to the normal schedule with Biloxi the day before Poplarville and Pearlington a week later.

Excellent match today!!  I think it was one of the best ever!! Weather turned out to be great, stages were outstanding, and the competition was intense. This month we had 53 entries that included 3 Master class shooters. We appreciate everyone coming out to shoot.

In case you didn’t know, that great “Run and Gun” stage down on the south range was designed and set up by our friends from the Mobile Club. For that, we would like to especially thank Mac Hart, Jeff Blitch, and Robbie Foil for coming over Friday and making that happen. Great job … everyone really enjoyed and appreciated it.

Just to let everyone know.. if anyone ever has any ideas for a stage, you are welcome to come on out and have at it. We appreciate the help and you may just have a talent for stage design that you just don’t know about yet.

Again and as usual, thanks for all your help and support. Without you, we could not make this all happen!

Congratulations to this month’s winners….

Stages are set for Saturday.  This month, in addition to our usual challenging stages,  we have a special mystery stage.  Mac Hart from the Mobile Pistol Shooters Association has asked to set up a special stage.  He tells us this is his special signature stage and he needs all the room we can give him.  So we gladly obliged and stage 5 on the south range is his to do as he pleases.  He tells me it is pure “Run-n-Gun” heaven.  Can’t wait!!!!   As always, we are going to need a little help from everyone to R.O, Score, paste and, of course, break down.  So please don’t Shoot and Scoot unless you absolutely have too.  These matches are only as good as YOU make them.  Match sign-up begins at 8:15 – Safety Briefing and Hammer Down at 9:00.   This month’s stages can be previewed by clicking on the stage icon below. We look forward seeing you there!!! Be Safe, Have Fun.


September 2013 Poplarville pistol match results

A late season heat wave gripped the range today and made shooting just slightly less than pleasant. Well, actually, it was pretty damn hot. For whatever reason, we had only 13 shooters today. Maybe it was because the CAS match got rescheduled to today. Or, maybe it was the weird calendar quirk that made this the second Sunday but the second Saturday hasn’t yet occurred. Normally, we shoot Biloxi, THEN Poplarville. Whatever the reason, those that didn’t come missed another great match. We did have one new shooter today, who did great and we hope he comes back to shoot again. (If you do, you might want to bring some more mags…).

In the end, it came down to one careless mistake at the loading bench. Had it not been for a squib on his first stage, Gerwin Henn would probably have won the overall match. However, because it occurred so early in the stage, he zeroed stage 5. Even with giving up the better part of 140 points, he still took 4th overall. But that’s the way it goes. The overall winner was Read more…
