May 2018 Poplarville 3-Gun match reminder

The last 3-Gun match of the first half of the year is now open. The match date is Sunday, March 6, 2018. Hammers go down at 9 AM. Cost is only $10 for SMPSA club members and $15 for non-members. This match will feature a special format that allows you to switch guns between stages. Normally, you can’t change guns during the match but for the next match, you will be able to select the most appropriate gun for the job. You may choose your favorite deer rifle for the long range steel stage, and then switch to an SBR for the close quarters rifle stage. For this one match out of the year, you can use any safe gun on any stage. You do need to stick with rifles for the rifle part, etc. but now you can use the MOST appropriate tool for the job, not just something that is the best compromise.

If you want to know what you should bring, check it out here. Sign up now!

The 3-Gun match goes on hiatus starting in June for three months, due to the heat. register-now-button

April 2018 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

April 29, 2018 Leave a comment

Last Sunday was another washout but we took advantage of the 5th Sunday of the month to shoot a make up match. Perfect weather and a great turnout made for a great day all around. It was pleasant to be outside on match day, for a change. We had 52 shooters compete today and many of them found a much more difficult bunch of stages than are usually seen in Biloxi. Our fearless leader recently shot the Area 6 match and experienced significantly more challenging stages there compared to what we normally set up, so he decided to do some on the job training with today’s stages. Of the 52 shooters, only 2 managed to avoid any Mikes, and only one of those guys avoided the No-shoots as well, to have a clean match. That’s how tough it was.

But it wasn’t just about shooting clean, it was about speed as well. Our overall match winner was fast and accurate and won the match by over 5%. Congratulations to  Read more…

April Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

April 21, 2018 1 comment

If you could custom order a perfect day for a pistol match, you would be hard pressed to improve on the one we had today at the Brothers N Arms range.  Sixty-one competitors came out to enjoy great temperatures and blue skies for our 2 year anniversary match. We had great help with final set up this morning and break down was super fast with so many helping hands.  Thank you to everyone for their efforts!

Justin Green and Bryce Dupuy designed and built some awesome stages that had shooters reaching deep for that little something extra.  One shooter that found more than just a little, though. Read more…

April 2018 Poplarville *AFTERNOON* pistol match results

April 10, 2018 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionOnce again, a strange thing happened this week. A match just popped up out of nowhere and was a hit. With our second straight rain-out on the regular match day, we found there is a willing and able audience for a weekday afternoon make-up match format. Last month, we had 33 guns shoot for the same type of event, and today, there were 39. In fact, the turnout was a bit of a mixed blessing. The support is hugely appreciated but it caused some backups today that I didn’t anticipate.

The good news is with the increased support, we will be able to begin the range upgrade plan that will create more defined bays with real berms. This should allow us to shoot at least 5 stages at the same time, which eludes us now. This also will include a more permanent fix for the road into the range, so we should be able to avoid at least some of the rain-outs that have plagued us recently, where the range is fine, but the road is impassible.

With 5 challenging stages, lots of shooters found ways to receive a visit from their unwanted Uncle Mike today. There were also some really great performances. But there is always one man (or woman) left standing when the score-dust settles. Today, that dusty person was  Read more…
