May 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionWe finally caught a break with the rain that plagued the late winter and spring season and were able to shoot on the normal day. For the past two months, we had to delay the Sunday match to the middle of the next week, which cut out quite a few people. The afternoon matches were great and the weather was wonderful, but it was mostly the retired folks who could make it. Today, we had to contend with Mother’s Day, which happens every year. But the match turnout was decent with 32 shooters enjoying the abundant sunshine.

Since the Mississippi Classic makes it’s triumphant return next weekend, we set up stages that were a bit more challenging than normal. Today featured lots of hard cover and a greater than normal no-shoot population. Tough shots put everyone to the test, hopefully getting ready for next week. The Classic stages look great, but none of them look like they will be easy. Good luck to everyone who is shooting.

When the 5 stages were complete, the winner was once again a familiar face to the Poplarville podium. Congratulations to  Read more…

The weather finally cut us some slack and we had a perfect day for 3-Gun. This was the last match of the first half of the year, and we will not resume until September, as we take a break for the Summer heat. Although the weather was fine, we had only 16 shooters make the trip. But they were treated to a special match that was something new for our club. Today the only division was “Anything Goes.” If it was safe and fit the description of the type of gun you were supposed to shoot, then you could use it. We allowed the competitors to change guns between stages to best fit the requirements of the stage at hand. Some folks took the opportunity to dig deep into the safe and find that dusty old rifle or shotgun that isn’t great at all-around 3-gun, but would be perfect for one stage, once and a while. We saw some cool stuff and the shooters seemed to enjoy taking the exotic stuff out for a nice Sunday drive.

The stages were broken down into two types. There were the quick, warm-up stages that we shot first, where it was close up and tight and every effort needed to be on speed. After that warm-up, thing proceeded to the more challenging aspects of the match, were those skills that challenge many of us were tested. I’m talking about long range rifle and shotgun reloading. We shot from a new location today that allowed a wide spread of rifle targets out to 350 yards. The wind came into play more than it normally does for long range rifle, but it was clear who has their gun dialed in and who doesn’t. The shotgun monster stage started with 4 seemingly easy rifle shots on auto poppers, and then moved to 24 bird shot targets and two medium range slug targets. Here, reloading the shotgun while moving was either your strength or weakness. No one seemed to be in the middle on this skill. Either you can do it, or you can’t.

But in the end, it was clear who ruled the day. Our overall winner and winner of all four stages was  Read more…
