BPSA February 2017 USPSA Results!

February 26, 2017 Leave a comment

We had 64 shooters come out today for the BPSA February 2017 USPSA match. The weather was perfect, and the match ran fairly smooth, aside from the bottleneck we had on the two speed shoots that shared a single bay. And the pizza showed up and just the right time!

Now on to the results:

Stage 1, Close Quarter Standards, was the 24 round, 3-string classifier. Overall stage winner here was Gerwin Henn shooting Limited, followed by Steve Tannetta also shooting Limited.

Stage 2, Swinging Bill, was a 12 round speed shoot, which featured a bill drill on a 20 yard swinger. The stage was also Virginia count. Having dot on your gun proved to be useful here, as the stage winner was Roger Henn, followed by Bill Mahley, both shooting Open.

Stage 3, Roscoe’s Star, was a 9 round speed shoot featuring mandatory reload and a 18 yard star, which proved to be quite the challenge for most shooters, most especially the new ones. Lot of time and brass was spent here, despite it only being 9 round minimum stage. Again, the dot on top of the gun proved to be useful, as the stage winner was Roger Henn followed again by Bill Mahley. The top non-dot finish was turned in by Todd Dempster, with a 10 second run.

Stage 4, Drop Turn Distance, was a 16 round medium course that featured a 15 yard drop turner with two disappearing targets. Steven Mosher had it dialed in here for the stage win shooting production with run of 10 seconds.

Stage 5, Tilt Right, was a 20 round medium course that had 2 pieces of steel, and a variety of plan options. Roger Henn picked the right option, and won the overall stage with a time of 13 seconds.

Stage 6, Speed Bumps, was a 26 round field course that was the biggest of the day, and required the most movement. Roger Henn again took the stage win here with a 17 second run.

When the final results were compiled, Ethan Boudreaux won Carry Optics, Gerwin Henn won Limited, Michael Ramos took Limited 10, Roger Henn edged Bill Mahley by a mere 2 points to take Open division by less that half of percent, CJ Williams won PCC, Steven Mosher won production, Gerald Benton took revolver, and Adam WIlliams edged Daryl Fury by only 3 points to take Single Stack by less than a percent overall.

Want to thank everyone for coming out and shooting, and especially for the hard work in running squads and tearing down stages after the match. Without the team effort, none of this would be possible.

See you the next match!

February 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

Once again, the day started out a bit crisp with a brisk North wind blowing. However, by the time the first shot was fired, it seemed to have calmed down and turned out to be a very pleasant day. In all, 55 shooters made it out to test their skills on 6 great stages. More and more steel is appearing at our match and hopefully, you like it. There were quite a few comments last month and most favored more rather than less steel. So, there you go…

When the six stages were done and the scores tallied, there was little drama about the results. For the second month in a row, the overall match winner and Limited division winner was  Read more…

Due to the overwhelming response and huge registration numbers for the initial state championship matches for Revolver, Single Stack, PCC, L10, and Carry Optics, we have decided to increase capacity and expand the number of days for the Open, Limited, and Production matches to meet this ever increasing demand.

February 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

February 19, 2017 Leave a comment

Registration is open for the February USPSA Pistol Match at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg. This month’s event will have at 6 stages, including  a classifier.

I asked you guys last month what you thought about January’s match having more stages, more steel, and a higher overall round count.  For those that responded, the overwhelming response was that ya’ll loved it and wanted more of it. Our stage design officer heard you – six stages, four stages with steel (29 total pieces and one stage alone has 13), and a round count right at 150.  We have also had a few requests to add Pistol Caliber Carbine to our match and the decision has been made to do so.  You’ll find it now as an option on the registration form.

I want to give a special thank you in advance to Bill Jackson from the Poplarville Club, who will be filling in for me at this month’s match.  As most of you know, he’s way better at this stuff than I am, so you guys are in excellent hands!

Setup starts at 7:00 am and registration/check-in ends at 8:30 am.  No walk-ons after 8:30, no exceptions.  There will be a new shooters meeting at 8:30 and a mandatory safety meeting at 8:45.

Payment will be due upon arrival.  If you are a member of the Brothers N Arms Range, $15 will be due.  Otherwise, the entry fee is $20.  To register, just click on the big button.register-now-button
