March 2014 Pearlington pistol match results

March 16, 2014 Leave a comment

The day began with a downpour and it scared lots of people away. But, we had 12 brave souls bring their rubber rafts and we had a match! Since it was a classifier match, many of the regulars decided to take the day off. There were but 60 shots required to complete the match in regulation today and even though we got a very late start, we were done shortly after noon and with only one squad shooting, we were able to pick up the stages as we finished them. There were only 3 or fewer stands per stage, so it came down quickly.

Since a classifier match is a “special” affair, the overall results aren’t all that meaningful, unless you happened to have won. Tell that to…

March Pearlington match reminder *UPDATE*

March 16, 2014 Leave a comment

It is raining right now ((6:45 AM) at the range, but all stages are set up and it is expected to clear up around 9:30 AM. We are going ahead with the match although there will likely be a delayed start. Since we are shooting a classifier match, movement on the stage is minimal or non-existent so you won’t get too muddy. The stages are quick so it won’t take forever. If you need some classifiers, then come on out. If you just want to shoot, and don’t care, well, come on out as well! What’s the very worst that could happen!?

On Sunday, March 16, 2014, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Practical Shooters will hold its annual Classifier match. We will shoot six classifiers instead of the usual four stages and one classifier. If you are new to USPSA and classified yet or just want to get classified in another division, this is a way to get there. You need six classifier scores to get classified by USPSA and you can get all of them in one match. Since classifiers are usually quicker to shoot as compared to normal stages, the match should not take as long as normal.

However, the weather is threatening to cancel the match. As of now, the match is still on, but check back here before coming out tomorrow to see if there has been a change of plans. We will have the final decision posted by 7 AM on Sunday.

For those interested, the classifiers being shot are:

  • 03-02 – Six Chickens
  • 99-11 – El Presidente
  • 99-14 – Eye of the Tiger
  • 99-23 – Front Sight
  • 99-62 – Bang and Clang
  • 13-01 – Disaster Factor

March 2014 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionIt seemed like everyone remembered to set their clock forward, because we got started on time, and there were no late arrivals. We finished by Noon even though we had 5 stages and 21 shooters. Three balanced squads managed to keep moving and got it done. We had great help from all the shooters for both setup and tear down. Your match staff really appreciates that.

So far this year, we have averaged 21 shooters for the first three months. This is ahead of last year’s pace by three, on average, so things are starting out good. As a reminder, club memberships renew in April so next month will be the time when we look to you to rejoin (or join) to support our activities. Your dues help defray the cost of the lease and insurance and also go towards new props.

We had a good match today, although the top spot wasn’t really in doubt. Our match winner was…

BPSA March Pistol Match Results

BPSA Small

It just keeps getting better and better!!  Today we set a new BPSA participation record at 63 shooters!!!  I guess word is getting out that we are running a class act.  Every month we hook a few more people on this sport and if you happened to look over at the new shooters briefing today, you would have seen a crowd of about 12 new shooters.  We are happy to have all of you, hope everyone had fun, and we hope to see you again next time.  Always glad to see our sport getting more and more popular.

The weather today was absolutely perfect and the range conditions could not have been better.   As usual, this month’s stages were second to none.  There was a little bit of everything here today…..Long shots, fast stages, mind benders, and even a couple of 3 shot twists.   Thanks to Gerwin and Bob for the excellent job done on stages 2 and 5.

We would like to thank everyone who came out today and I want to especially  thank everyone who helped set-up and those of you who helped break down. We appreciate it more than you can ever imagine.

As always, if anyone ever has an idea for a stage, you are welcome to come on out and have at it. Just let us know and we will reserve a bay for you. We will 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….

March 2014 Poplarville 3-Gun match results

March 2, 2014 1 comment

Today was the day of the new shooter. We had 13 shooters for the match, and four great stages. However, for Poplarville, five of these shooters were new to our match. That’s what we like, with new people finding out our secret in the woods, but unfortunately, our regular  turnout was a bit light. We’ll take 13, but we would prefer more. Anyway, the weather cooperated and we had no issues there. The stages were very challenging today, with multiple penalties on two stages. In fact, on stage 2 and 4, there were only 2 shooters on each who shot them clean. That’s pretty telling.

After the math was done, there, of course, was a winner. For the past 3 months, Joe Jones had ruled the roost, but today, he could only managed a second. Returning to the top was… Read more…
