2017 CK Arms Mississippi Open State Championship Results!

The 2017 CK Arms Mississippi Open State Championship is in the books, and it was another great match in the Mississippi State Championships Series.

The match had a little bit of everything, mostly searing high heat for those that shot on Saturday, and on and off showers and constant mud for those that shot on Sunday.

The final tally was 86 total competitors competing on 10 challenging stages that featured some of the highest difficulty and distance of all our matches so far.

Stage 1, Eight is Enough, was a short course speed shoot that featured 4 paper and 4 steel and required only 1 hit per paper. Mel Rodero took the stage win with a smoking run of 6.82 seconds.

Stage 2, Shuffling Around, was a 12-round short course that featured a paper and steel array with a mandatory reload. Max Michel Jr. took the stage here, with James Lofton second at 91%.

Stage 3, Hide n Seek, was a 22-round long course that featured a T shape that saw most competitors cut around the corner at the start. Max Michel Jr. won this stage, with Jason Welch right on his tail at 86%.

Stage 4, Sit or Swing, was a 16 round medium course that featured a seated start and a swinger activated by either of two poppers. Max Michel Jr. Won this stage, just edging out Ogie Delarosa at 73%.

Stage 5, To Drop or Not, was a 26 round long course that featured a drop Turner with disappearing targets activated by a stomp box. Max Michel Jr. won this stage, with James Lofton taking a strong second at 95%.

Stage 6, No Drop, wasa 24 round long course that featured backward movement after starting on a deactivated stomp box. Max Michel Jr. Won the stage, with James Lofton taking second at 88%.

Stage 7, Rack it, was a 29 round long course with forward movement that featured an unloaded start and mags staged on barrels. James Lofton won this stage with a 7.1 hit factor.

Stage 8, Backtrack it, was a 29 round long course that featured backward movement through the stage and an unloaded start. Max Michel Jr. won this stage, with James Lofton was second at 77%.

Stage 9, Running Shoes, was a 32 round long course that featured competitors covering a lot of real estate and 11 pieces of steel. Max Michel Jr. won this stage by a country mile, with James Lofton second at 75%.

Stage 10, Standing Steel, was a 12 round short course that featured a paper array and steel array with a mandatory reload. The trick being the paper, including partials, was at 20 yards, and the steel at 35 yards. Max Michel won this stage with a 9 second run, and James Lofton was second at 91%.

July 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

July 15, 2017 Leave a comment

The day dawned a bit foggy and very overcast, which actually kept the temps moderate and made for a great start for 38 shooters at today’s match.  Also, for the first time, we opened up membership to our USPSA chapter and we sincerely thank all who took advantage of the offer.  Your support is much appreciated and will make the club even better as we move forward!!

Even with all of the recent rain, the range conditions were more than acceptable.  The stages had a great combination of movement and round count and everyone loved the “Burn ’em Down” stage in bay 5.  At the end of the day, Open shooters ruled the day, taking 7 of the top 10 spots.  The match winner Read more…

July 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

July 9, 2017 Leave a comment

Registration is open for the July 2017 USPSA Pistol Match at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg. This month’s event will have at least 5 stages, including a classifier.

With a year as a USPSA sanctioned club under our belt, a couple of ways to more closely align our methods of operation with other area clubs have been decided on.  A couple of slight changes have been made so please take note!

In an effort to streamline the registration process, checking in at the Range House is no longer necessary; though you should feel free to stop in for a cup of coffee or to use the rest room.  Simply park where you normally would on the range grounds and look for the registration table by the storage container.

Second, membership in the Brothers N Arms MS17 USPSA chapter itself (I know, it’s a mouthful, we’re working on it) is now open to all for $40.00 annually.  This will allow the club access to capital that helps us keep equipment up to date and will give the paid member a $5 discount on match fees.  So, non-members shoot for $20, members shoot for $15, and Juniors shoot for $10.

Lastly, the match in August will be a Special Classifier match with at least 6 stages, each being a USPSA sanctioned Classifier Stage.  If you have been wanting to get that L10, Carry Optics, or PCC classification and you’re in a hurry, this is your chance.  If you would like to work on more than one classification, simply register separately in each class of interest and arrive with all equipment necessary to shoot each.  Of course, each registration requires it’s own fee and please limit yourself to two registrations for the match.

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. The match starts promptly at 9:00 am.

July 2017 Poplarville pistol match results

July 9, 2017 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionAfter the record setting turnout last month, it looked like we might beat that today, but the final count was a mere 44 shooters. That’s still a great turnout for us and Wayne and I greatly appreciate your support. Online registration reached at peak of 57 by last night, but we expect around 10% attrition as normal.

As you saw today, the area surrounding the range underwent some big changes. How this will affect us in the long run is yet to be determined, as there may be more logging to come. Thankfully, we had not started our plan to build bays and fix the road. Once the logging has moved on, we can begin some serious dirt work to make the range more “rangey.”

The original forecast on Friday has a real decent chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday, but that never materialized, and when the hammers started falling, the overcast sky make for a not too miserable start to the day. With four high round count, but reasonably quick stages, we zipped through and were done by around 11:30. Had it not been for the minor scoring issue, we could have been on our way by Noon.

As it was, a scoring problem resulted in not only a delay, but also the release of two rounds of incorrect scores at the range. If you downloaded the match from my iPad at the range, those scores are wrong. Here’s what happened. The score computer for squad 4 ran out of juice with 3 shooters left on their last stage (stage 3). I gave them the computer from squad 2 and set it to stage 3 for them. They then shot and scored their last three shooters on that computer. When we went to sync everything, we discovered those three shooters that were shooting stage 3 actually got scored on stage 2. Once we realized that, we moved those scores to stage 3 and resynced. Those would be the last scores released at the range. On the way home, it occurred to me that with those last three scores posted to stage 2 instead of stage 3 for the first sync, the real stage 2 scores MIGHT have been overwritten. That turned out to be the case, and once home, I figured all that out and got all the corrected scores in the right place. Fortunately and unfortunately, this resulted in several people moving in the final, final results.

Speaking of results, let’s get to it. The overall winner did not change and that means  Read more…
