October 2017 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match “results”

October 22, 2017 1 comment

The only one that made a worse call than us today was the weatherman. The forecast was for light rain by around 11 AM, so we made the decision to have have the match. Bad decision. Just about the time we got the last stage set up, the rain began. It didn’t really let up until we got everything torn down, right about the time it quit raining (for a while). By that time, there had been INCHES of rain in a couple of hours and water flowing out of the bays like rivers. Fourteen shooters were crazy enough to try to get the match in but we only managed to shoot one stage per each of the two squads, so there are no final results since no one shot both stages.

Many of the folks that did come out made the right decision to not shoot at all. Some got their match fees back. Those that didn’t but didn’t shoot will get a rain check for their next match. If you did try to shoot and only got one stage in, you will also get a rain check.

So, what did we accomplish today? Well, we wasted a bunch of targets. Even though we bagged all targets before the rain started, many still got wet and were trashed. We had hoped to get some practice in for the Gator next week, but that really didn’t happen, unless it rains there, too. We did have some quality BS time while we waited for the brief gaps in the rain bands talking about how great we were going to be in the Gator next weekend. So, it wasn’t a complete washout, but we just weren’t able to get a full match in. We tried oh so hard.

We’ll be back at it next month. Good luck to those shooting the Gator next week!

Brothers N Arms October USPSA Match Results

October 21, 2017 Leave a comment

The rain held off and the temperatures stayed cool for the 49 competitors that came out for today’s match.  We ran six stages, including a classifier, that all required a great mixture of strategy, speed, and accuracy.  A huge thank you goes out the the Dupuy family for all of the help with set up, and specifically to Blayne and Bryce for designing and building the two stages that most people seemed to enjoy the most.  These two young men are outstanding examples of what makes this sport great!  On to the results!

Open shooters ruled the day, taking the four of the top five spots,   Read more…

Brothers N Arms October USPSA Match Clarification

October 9, 2017 Leave a comment

I have been made aware that the combination of the first Sunday in October also being the first day in October and my having sent the match reminder a week earlier than usual has caused some confusion.  So, for clarity’s sake, the Brothers N Arms USPSA October Pistol Match is on October 21st, the third Saturday, NOT this coming Saturday, October 14th.  For all of you that have registered, you are good to go, there is nothing for you to do. If, however, you thought you were registering for a match on the 14th and cannot make it on the 21st, just send me a withdrawal notice.

I’m very sorry for any confusion, let me know if you have any questions!

Hattiesburg USPSA Club Match Date Change

October 1, 2017 Leave a comment

As many of you will remember, the Hattiesburg USPSA Club moved it’s match date temporarily from the fourth Saturday to the third Saturday of each month back in July.  This was done in an effort to accommodate the State Championship matches that were scheduled for the fourth Sunday in Biloxi  through the month of September.  Throughout that time period, the Club received so much positive feedback and so many requests from competitors to keep the third Saturday match date that it was decided a couple of weeks ago that making the change permanent had to be given proper consideration.

The decision process involved looking at what would be best for our competitors, the Hattiesburg Club, the relevant clubs in the Mississippi section, as well as for USPSA clubs in neighboring states.  After much discussion and deliberation, the decision has been made to make the change permanent.  This conclusion was reached with the knowledge that there could/would be negative consequences for some and for that you have our true and sincere apologies.  At the end of the day,  however, it appears that the advantages of making the change will outweigh the negatives for the vast majority of those involved.  Like the man said, you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.

So, I said all of that to say, we look forward to seeing you on the third Saturday of the month!  October’s match will be on the 21st and will be a great chance to warm up for the Louisiana Gator Classic that will held on October 28-29.  The remainder of the year’s matches will be updated in Practiscore shortly.
