September 2014 Pearlington pistol match results

Someone forgot to tell the weatherman that this is September and it is supposed to be cooling down by now. It turned out to be quite warm, at least while standing in the Sun. The shade was nice if you could find it, but it wasn’t available on every stage. With Tom away today, it was left to the second string to put on the match, but things worked out just fine. The stages were challenging, but not overly difficult. We had 39 shooters, which is decent by any measure.

September 2014 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionAfter the rainout in Biloxi Friday afternoon, we expected a better turnout than we got today, but those that did show up were a bit surprised at the simple appearing, yet surprisingly challenging stages that confronted them. We had sixteen shooters overall, and one brand new shooter to the sport and to our club. He did great, even with the surprisingly tough stages. Hopefully, he will come back next month and let his wife shoot next time!

When we showed up this morning, it was 68° and no rain since mid-week. Hopes ran high with the setup crew that it would stay about 72° all day, but that was quickly passed by. Although it was warm, it was not miserable and the shooters managed to get done by Noon. That’s always a good thing.

BPSA September Pistol Match .. Saturday September 13th! – Cancelled!!!

We have a couple of issues out at the range today that has forced us to cancel this month’s match.  First, the range is in the process of reclaiming the lead from the berms on the pistol ranges.  So, there is a lot of standing dirt all over the bays.  Then, the afternoon rain turned everything to mud.  Because of all the dirt work, none of the water ran off, making the ranges completely unusable.  Alas, there is still hope for Poplarville on Sunday and Pearlington next week.  Until next time….be safe!

 

 

Everything is looking good for the match.   It’s going to be another hot one, so be prepared.   We tried to keep the stages challenging, but designed them with the heat in mind.  We are going to be a little short handed this month, so the more that sign-up online, the quicker we can get started.

To sign-up, just click on this link:   BPSA Online Match Signup.

For those of you who don’t sign-up online,  we will be at the table at  8:30 – 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!!! Gate code 4000.  See you Saturday!

Be Safe, Have Fun.

September Poplarville 3-gun match results

September 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Today may have been the hottest match we have ever had. It’s a good thing we take off for the Summer. It was beyond unpleasant, at least from a temperature/humidity standpoint. The shooting was great, the stages were great, but it was all about the heat.

We had 10 shooters today, which ties our lowest turnout of the year. The stages were challenging, but I guess there were some who thought it might just be too hot. We have requested better weather for next month…

The results are fairly typical for a 3-gun match with Read more…

September 2014 Poplarville 3-gun match reminder

September 2, 2014 2 comments

The 2014-15 3-gun shooting season kicks off this coming Sunday (September 7) in Poplarville. It seems like an eternity since the last match but it’s really only been 4 months. If you are looking for another stop on the 3-Gun Nation tour, however, this isn’t it. There are no pro shooters, no black/red circle targets, and no cameras (except the occasional GoPro), but there are challenging stages requiring physical exertion, long-distance and close-range shooting, and general good times for those that like to enjoy their Second Amendment rights.

If you haven’t shot 3-gun before, then please check us out. Our rules and important information can be found here. Spectators are welcome, but bring eye and ear protection. Membership is not required to shoot or to watch. If you have shot with us before, then you know the drill. Bring ammo, food and water, sunscreen and a good attitude.
