BPSA November 2016 USPSA Match Results!

November 27, 2016 1 comment

We had a great turnout today for the BPSA November USPSA match, with 57 shooters coming out. Several of those were first time shooters, which is always great to see.

The morning started out chilly, and the competition was tight across several divisions.

Stage 1 was the classifier, Front Sight. Steve Tannetta blew this one out of the water shooting Limited, with a 10.48 hit factor and a time of 4.96 seconds. Right behind him was Robert Jones, also in Limited, just a mere 0.02 seconds off the pace.

Stage 2 was a 24 round long course with 6 pieces of steel and all open targets. It was one of the faster paced stages of the day. Bill Mahley took this down in PCC with a 14 second run, and Steven Taylor set the pace for pistols with a 16 second run with his production gun.

Stage 3 was a 12 round short course that had 4 pieces of steel and a swinger at close to 20 yards away. Bill Mahley took this stage again with PCC with a smoking 8 second run, and Steven Mosher set the standard for pistols with an 11 second run.

Stage 4 was a 14 round medium course that was one of the more technical stages of the day. It featured two pieces of steel, a drop turner with a disappearing target and several tight shots covered with no shoots. Bill Mahley took the stage with PCC with an 11 second run, followed closely by Jonathan Jones, Michael Morgan, and Robert Jones each shooting Limited.

Stage 5 was a 35 round long course, easily the biggest and most target rich stage of the day. It featured a few tight shots at the start, and then you’re ally had to cover some ground to finish this stage. Bryant Willett took this stage with his production gun, David Martian was second with PCC, and Ethan Boudreaux was right behind in Carry Optics.

In the overall match results, it was a tight race across several divisions.

In Limited, Jonathan Jones bested his dad Robert Jones by 12 points to take the win, with Steven Tannetta finishing just 4 more points back.

In Production, Steven Mosher edged Bryant Willett by 14 points, with Steven Taylor another 13 points back.

In Open, Bill Jackson finished 8 points ahead of Jason Smith and Betsy Young.

In PCC, Bill Mahley finished 36 points in front of David Martian.

Full list of division winners:

Carry Optics: Ethan Boudreaux
Limited: Jonathan Jones
Limited 10: David Pape
Open: Bill Jackson
PCC: Bill Mahley
Production: Steven Mosher
Revolver: Gerald Benton
Single Stack: Tony Marcellino

Full results:

Want to thank everyone who came out and shot, helped run timers and nooks and pasted and helped tear down. It really is a team effort.

Also hope all the new shooters who came out enjoyed themselves and will be back.

Especially want to thank those who helped setup, without whom the match wouldn’t be possible.

See you at the next match!

November Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

November 27, 2016 1 comment


Yesterday’s USPSA pistol match at the Brothers N Arms range was the perfect way to cap off a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend for 50 shooters.  The day started out at a chilly 45 degrees but warmed up nicely as the sun rose in the perfectly blue sky.  The six stages moved along at a good pace, with all four squads finishing up around noon.  This included the super fast break down of the stages by the the contestants that stayed and helped, made even better by the addition of an onsite storage container by the great folks at Brothers N Arms.  A huge thank you to both !!

The match and the Open division were won decisively by John Nguyen, Read more…

BPSA November 2016 Two Gun and Shotgun results!

November 19, 2016 2 comments

We had a great turnout today for the Two Gun match followed by the Shotgun side match. We had 29 shooters in the Two Gun match and another 18 in the shotgun match.

The weather was nice, aside from some brisk wind that necessitated us to bring out the sandbags to keep everything weighted down. The competition was just as stiff as names at the top of the scoreboard changed hands several times between stages.

In the Two Gun match, Stage 1 featured the Texas star, and was the most accuracy intensive stage of the day with every paper target having a no shoot. Clayton Patterson took this stage win home with a 27 second run, followed closely by Ivan Deroche and Jeret Howard.

Stage 2 had you starting empty handed with the rifle and pistol staged on separate tables. Bryant Willett took the stage win here with a 28 second run, with Jeret Howard and Joseph Arabie right on his heels.

Stage 3 had you starting with the pistol and the rifle staged down range. Steven Mosher took the stage win here with a 24 second run, with Steve Lashinsky and Bryant Willett right behind him.

After it was all over the final results showed the following winners:

Tactical Division: Steven Mosher
Limited Division: Jeret Howard
Open Division: Bryant Willett

Full results:

In the shotgun match, stage 1 again feature the Texas star, and Ivan Deroche set the pace here with a 15.34 time, followed closely by David Martian with a 15.96.

Stage 2 required 11 rounds, 3 lollipops on the side berms and 5 small poppers on the center. No surprises at the top of this stage, as Ivan again set the pace with an 11.63 and David was right on him with less than two tenths separating them.

Stage 3 was a 12 round stage with 6 lollipops to your left, each in two shot arrays, with the right side being filled out by two plates and four poppers. This stage would decided the match, as David Martian laid down a smoking 13.04 with Clayton Patterson, Joseph Arabie and Trey Nicholson right behind him.

When the dust settled these winners emerged:

Limited Division: David Martian
Open Division: Clayton Daigle
Heavy Division: Ray Sawyer

Full results:

Want to thank everyone who came out and shot, helped run timers and nooks and pasted and helped tear down. It really is a team effort.

Especially want to thank those who helped setup, without whom the match wouldn’t be possible.

November 2016 Poplarville pistol match results

November 13, 2016 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionFall has finally arrived for the shooting season. The 3-gun match last week and today’s pistol match were about as pleasant as you could ask for, considering this is south Mississippi. The turnout was pretty light today, partly due the state level Steel Challenge match in Biloxi. In all, there were 15 shooters. Out of that, we had three first-time ever shooters. They all finished with no problem, and appeared to have a great time. We hope you come back for more in the future!

We tried something a bit different today with the stage setup. Instead of setting up one stage in each of the usual bays, we set up two stages side by side, in three of the bays. This was in part due to the left-over stages from the three-gun match last week, and part due to just trying something new. It seemed to work out, as no one waited on the “other” squad today.

Let’s talk results. The overall match and Open division winner was Read more…
