June 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionIt was HOT, HOT, HOT today but that didn’t stop 43 determined, if slightly crazy, shooters from enjoying one of the more challenging matches in a long time at the range in Poplarville. We were in Summer mode, even through it isn’t officially Summer yet, and that meant no steel, and not too much running. But that didn’t mean it wasn’t hard. As it turned out, every single target in the match today had either a no-shoot partially covering it or a portion of the target painted with hard cover. There weren’t any real hoser stages, much less any hoser targets. You had to at least aim a bit on every target. There were lots of black and white pasters in use today.

We had a tiny problem at the end of the match. The overly aggressive tear-down crew dismantled the classifier before the last squad got to shoot it. Fortunately, it only took a few minutes to set it back up, so everyone got to enjoy a miserable classifier. I’m sorry I picked that one and I won’t do it ever again! The highest score in the match was a decent A class score but it was from a GM Limited shooter. A few did well for their classification, but most didn’t. Hopefully, if you weren’t one of the lucky ones, you tanked it bad enough not to hurt your own classification.

When it comes to the overall scores, we had a return to the top spot for Roger Henn, who won Open and Overall fairly convincingly. He and John Nguyen (second today) have won the last six matches between them, so they are locked in a battle for top dog. First in Limited went to David Pape, who was also third overall and close behind the top two Open shooters. Charles Alexander took the PCC division, while Wayne Alcock took Limited 10. Nick Saucier was first in Production. Roger Follette took the Carry Optics trophy today and Rob Campbell rounded out the winners with his Single Stack victory. This match definitely favored Open since all the stages had 24 rounds each. There was a required reload on one of those stages but otherwise, the Open shooters just shot the big stick every stage and didn’t worry. Plus, the dot helped, a lot.

Special thanks goes to the folks who were able to come early to help with the setup and to those who helped get everything taken down, as well.

And, once again, our shooters have continued to support the club with an additional 9 people joining or renewing their membership today. That brings us to a total of 61 shooters who are full fledged members, and that is a record! Thank you to all our supporting members!

As some of you already know, the club is now on Facebook. If you are a Facebook person, please feel free to follow us there so you can get more timely notifications of things going on in Poplarville (well, at least at the range…). You can search for “South Mississippi Practical Shooting Association” or just go here to find us. This web site will continue to contain the detailed content as it always has, and we will use Facebook to complement what we do and say here. That is, once I figure Facebook out!
