2017 Mississippi PCC, Carry Optics, and Limited 10 Championship Results!

The 2017 Mississippi PCC, Carry Optics, and Limited 10 Championship is in the books, and although we started the morning out with a little rain, and endured a shower around lunch, it ended up being a pretty nice day, and we had a blast shooting.

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who came out and shot with us, helped past and reset, tear down, and most of all those who helped RO and setup the night before. Without these guys help, these matches just don’t happen, and I like to thank them first. Lee Frasier, Ken Hablitzel, Harry Williams, Mike Ramos, Nick Saucier, Gary Kerr, Mike Strong, Trey Nicholson, Aaron Fitgerald, Bryant Willett, Robbie Foil, Jonathan O’Brien, Gerwin Henn, Roger Henn, Brian Dolly, Stephen LaSavia, Rafy RIjos, Steve Tannetta, David Pape, Bill Mahley, Ruth Mahley, John Nguyen, George Miller, Calvin Lindsay, Kyle Watkins, Ethan Boudreaux, Jeff Blitch, and Dani Blitch.

That team of folks makes the match what it is, so when you see them around give them a big high five. It’s also worth noting that a lot of the same names are at the top of many of the leaderboards today. It says a lot when your top guys are also putting in work. Other places I’ve been the local heat expects the superstar treatment and I’m pretty darn proud that none of our guys are too proud to pick up a hammer and pitch in.

Now on to the action:

Stage 1, Swinging Steel, was a 12 round short course that had you shooting 8 small pieces of steel at a pretty healthy distance, then a swinger and a tight partial with a mandatory reload mixed in. This one was a lot tougher than most folks expected, and it tanked a lot of folks matches today. Max Michel Sr. didn’t have that problem in Carry Optics with the stage win in 12.63 seconds, Gerwin Henn leveraged his solid fundamentals here for the L10 stage win with a smoking 10.79 run, and Joshua Mazzola blazed through this one with ease in PCC with a time on 8.73.

Stage 2, Swinging Bill, was a 12 round Virginia count stage that required 6 shots on the swinger, and 6 on a partial. John Nguyen took the stage win in CO here with a 10.87 run, Gerwin Henn took the stage in L10 with a 8.41 run, and Fernando Almeida took PCC with a 7.65.

Stage 3, Four by Four, was a 12 round short course that featured four popper on the left side, and four paper on the right. The only real decision to be made here was which way to go first, and then rely on execution. AJ McCartney picked the right choice and made it happen in CO with a smoking run of 9.70, Rafy Rijos took L10 with a 11.50, and Joshua Mazzola took the stage in PCC with a 10.21.

Stage 4, No Step on Snek, was a 24 round long course that featured four big colt poppers, and two deceptively small and distanced lollipops. Roger Henn was the man here in CO, with a 13.72 run, his old man Gerwin took it in L10 with a 13.37 run, and Joshua Mazzola ran the table in PCC with a 12.61 run.

Stage 5, Double Time, was a 14 round medium course that had only two steel, and a few tight partials. Roger Henn again won the stage in CO with a 9.54 run, Steven Mosher won L10 with a 11.80 run, and Bryant Willett won PCC with a smoking 8.61.

Stage 6, Triple Time, was a rehash of the previous stage, only this time it was three rounds per target, and ended up a 20 round long course. John Nguyen took it down in CO with a 11.39 run, Steven Taylor won L10 with a run of 13.48, and Joshua Mazzola won PCC with a 11.05.

Stage 7, My Way, was a pretty straightforward 24 round long course that featured two poppers. John Nguyen took the stage in CO, Gerwin Henn took L10, and new PCC shooter Woody Landry set the tone on this one in PCC.

Stage 8, The Highway, was the same stsage, with the added twist of an unloaded start and all mags staged on barrel. This didn’t change much for the high cap guys, but it altered the L10 guys plans significantly, as well as sending a couple people home anytime you do gun and mag handling off barrels. John Nguyen repeated his stage win in CO, Rowdy Bricco took the stage in L10, and Joshua Mazzola took the stage in PCC.

Stage 9, Wide Open, was the largest course at 32 rounds, and easily covered the most ground. This one really rewarded those guys who could cover ground quick, as evidenced by your fast-footed MD Steven Mosher taking the stage win in L10, with Roger Henn taking CO and Joshua Mazzola taking PCC.

Stage 10, Split Second, was an 8 round speed shoot that featured an optional drop turner, two poppers and tight partial. Roger Henn took the stage in CO at 4.93, outpacing the field by nearly 25%, Jonathan Jones blazed the stage in L10 with a time of 3.85 for the stage win, and Christopher DiMenna smoked a 4.51 run in PCC.
