September 2018 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

September 23, 2018 Leave a comment

The threat of rain seemed to scare off a bunch of people today (38 total shooters, down from 56 at the peak of registration), and it’s too bad because we had a quick but challenging match today. Only one pistol shooter managed to shoot clean (way to go, Gerald!). We shot 3 classifiers in addition to 2 regular field stages, with the thought being we would get rain around the middle of the match, and we wanted to try to move things along to head that off. It turned out the weather man was full of baloney today, because we were never even threatened by rain. 

The classifiers were challenging in their own right. One featured a bit of everything with 3 strings that included 3 draws, two mag changes and strong hand and weak hand shooting at a mix of open and partial Classic targets. Another required little to no aiming, but focused on how rapidly you could squeeze the trigger 5 times in a row. The field courses featured a good mix of partials with a few open targets thrown in to make you change gears often.

When the scores were finally synced, there was a new face at the top of the heap. Congratulations to  Read more…

September Brothers n Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

Fall doesn’t officially start until September 23, and you could certainly tell by the temperature at today’s match!  Forty folks braved heat indexes over 100 degrees to come out to shoot six fun and challenging stages.  Hats off to Justin Green for once again putting together a great mix of stages.  Thanks also to everyone that helped with setup and tear down, none of this would happen without you!  On to the scores.

The Dupuy brothers made their return after a summer off from our match, and did so very impressively.  Both placed decisively in the top five overall, but the day belonged to  Read more…

September 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionEven a “hurricane” earlier in the week couldn’t kill this match and we shot under fair skies and on a dry range. While it was warm (hot, maybe?), there was a breeze most of the morning and it really wasn’t too bad, weather-wise. A total of 44 shooters made it out to be challenged by 5 tough stages, and most found it deceptively difficult. Nothing looked too hard at first glance, but there were only 3 shooters with a no Mike or No-shoot day so that pretty much says it all.

Probably the worst peril we faced today was not the weather, but the love bugs. It’s that time of year again and they were EVERYWHERE! Hopefully, no one inhaled a mating pair while shooting.

OK, so let’s get to the scores. That’s what we all want to know. Since it was John Nguyen’s birthday yesterday, he took the day off today and that left some room at the top for a new face. The overall winner for today came from the Limited ranks, and not the usual Open division. Congratulations to  Read more…

September 2018 Poplarville USPSA Pistol match **UPDATE 2**

When I left the range this afternoon, the road was in decent shape so we should be good to go tomorrow. I have changed the proposed classifier to 06-06. The original planned didn’t fit in the space available.

If you haven’t yet registered, there is still room.

The stages were built today and they look like this: SMPSA 2018-09 match book.

The road was OK this afternoon, but it may have rained there after I left. I will be back tomorrow afternoon to check it out and make a final call by early evening (on Saturday).

If you haven’t yet registered, there is still room.
