March 2017 Poplarville 3-Gun match results

The turnout this month was down from last month’s match, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t a lot of jostling for the big trophy. Thirteen shooters shot four stages of 3-gun today under ideal conditions. It was high 60’s to the very low 70’s much of the day, with overcast skies keeping the shooters comfortable. The stages were a bit more balanced this month and we finished at a respectable 1 PM.

The focus this month was on the shotgun, which was used on all four stages. Three of those stages required at least one reload and that always tests the shooter’s abilities that don’t often get a lot of practice. Rifle also caused some issues with both long shots on seemingly small steel targets and some awkward head shots at very close range.

Only one shooter managed to go penalty free today, and not surprisingly, he won. Congratulations go to Clayton Patterson for his first 3-gun win at Poplarville. He managed to do it with a clean match and steady, consistent shooting. It wasn’t even real close with a margin of almost 5% over Jason Welch, in second place.

Your match staff thanks all the shooters who were able to help with the teardown of the match. Getting everything picked up and loaded back on the trucks is a lot of work and the help today was great.

And finally, a special note about next week’s pistol match in Poplarville. Because of a conflict with the Alabama Sectional match next weekend, the USPSA pistol match, which is normally scheduled for the second Sunday, will be held on the THIRD Sunday, on March 19th.
