September 2013 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson Precision

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 Wayne Alcock who also took Limited. Steven Mosher took the always popular Production division. In Open, Bill Jackson took top spot and second overall. Bob Brandt won Single Stack and Gerald Benton won Revolver.

With the light turnout, it was really important to have everyone help with setup and tear down. We had great support today and the match staff greatly appreciates it. Thanks to Bob for another great stage, and thanks to you too, Wayne, for putting a no-shoot swinger in front of the Texas Star. Who would have EVER thought that would make a difference? And who could forget crab-walking the plank on the Benton-Smith-Willett stage? Seriously, we did have some great stages today that really challenged everyone.

Don’t forget the Biloxi and Pearlington matches next weekend.
