November 2017 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

 

Weather-wise, it was hard to beat today. Especially after the total disaster that was last month. It was cool in the morning and still below 70 when we finished with sunny skies all day long. It is what you would pick if you could.

The turnout was great as well, with 54 shooters at hammer time. Towards the end of last week, we ran into an issue with the match filling up and it was reported that some folks who tried to register were told it was filled. We need to check on this to make sure this doesn’t happen again but hopefully, no one stayed away because of this. In general, at our local match, we don’t turn anyone away who comes out.

With the fine weather came some pretty fine shooting, too. The stages were well designed but with some interesting twists today, prop-wise. The PCC shooters may not have cared for this but most everyone else seemed to at least survive the manual actions needed on two of the stages. They forced you to think and get creative. When all the wailing was done, though, a winner emerged at the top of the heap. Our match winner today was John Nguyen, who also took Open division. Gerwin Henn was the Limited winner and 4th overall. Jason Welch took the top PCC spot and 7th overall. Bill Mahley won Carry Optics, while Steven Mosher took the Production win. And finally, William Davenport was first in Single Stack.

This was the first match that was put on by the reincarnated Deep South Shooters Association. The two previous matches were actually hosted by the Poplarville club. This time, it was the new club. When looking for results on the USPSA web site, search for result for MS11. In Practiscore, you can search for “DSSA.”

Thanks again for all the great help during setup early this morning. I had my doubts about getting done in time, but the crew did a fantastic job and we were done building stages by 8 AM. Thanks also goes to all the folks who came out to support the club by shooting with us. We hope you enjoyed the stages.

    Suggest better written stage briefs to ensure consistency between squads.

    Stage 5 stated “starting in box A.” There was no box.

    One squad started behind fault line, another heels against, and yet another drew a box in dirt in front of fault line.

    Thank you for your comments. We’ll do a better job next time. During setup, we didn’t take a PVC box to that bay, so we improvised, but didn’t change the WSB. Sounds like some gamers decided to take advantages of that.

      So what was the proper start position?

    It was intended to be from a box, but since we didn’t fetch one, then it was supposed to be from behind the line. It’s unlikely any of the different positions had a significant impact on the overall scores.

      When we got to the stage it said starting in box and there was a box drawn on the ground so we started in it. It was in front of the fault line.
