February 2017 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionI’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. What a difference a month makes. In January, it was 22 degrees in the morning, and today it was 72 degrees. I think everyone preferred 72…

We had a near record turnout today with 36 shooters enjoying the unseasonably warm February day to get in a little shooting. There were 6 stages, which seemed to challenge people more than I expected. We had three 30+ rounders, two speed shoots where many got tripped up and a tricky 6 round classifier. If you hit your draw and first shots there, you scored well. If not, then it likely won’t count against you! The only downside to the day was three DQs. They happen but we always hate to see them.

The match moved along at a great pace with the first squad finishing around 11:30 and the last was done before Noon. Once again, we had GREAT help getting everything picked up. Your match staff really appreciates it. Please also thank Tom and Bob for their help in designed stages and setting up. I keep telling you, they are good for something!

When the dust settled, the overall winner shot more consistently than everyone else. With a large flock of open shooters, it is a tad surprising to see the overall winner come from Limited, but when you’re hot, you’re hot. Congratulations to Gerwin Henn who won the overall match by more than 5% and Limited by 13%. Open was taken by Max Michel. Bryce Dupuy, in his Poplarville debut match, took Production. Roger Follette was first in PCC, while Nick Saucier won Single Stack. Don Evans took Carry Optics, now known as “Welfare Open” (thanks to the recent rule change that lets CO shooters fill their magazines to the top) and Gerald Benton topped all the Revolver shooters in his return to the his old stomping grounds.

We brought out some new props today and in the coming months, look for even more new stuff. Finances are doing well and one member of your match staff has recently retired, so he has plenty of time to build new walls and targets stands.
