October 2018 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

For a change, the weather was NOT threatening, nor was it too hot. It turned out to be a great day, weather-wise. This seemed to bring everyone out to play. In addition, Limited division was up for grabs as the three local Limited shooters who normally vie for top spot were all at Limited Nationals this weekend.

Thanks to the 2018 USPSA Optics Nationals experience that Roger Henn, George Miller and Bill Jackson gained in Frostproof, FL this past weekend, 68 shooters were treated to some of the stages they shot there. Stage 1, the “next-year” classifier proved to be as difficult as it did at Nationals. You just can’t miss fast enough to score well, even though many tried. The PCC guys ruled this stage. Stages 4 and 5 were as close to the Nationals versions as we could make them, and they performed similarly to the Nationals. They were challenging, but fair. A good test of your basic skills. The rest of the new classifiers coming won’t be any easier than stage 1, so get ready!

With the big turnout, the match moved along pretty well. With the nice weather, it made for a pleasant morning, as long as you were shooting well. Heck, it was still nice even with a miss here or there! But there is always one person who seems to get it all together. Today that person was Roger Henn, who won both Open division and the Overall match. This local win was a confirmation that Roger’s outstanding performance at Nationals was not a fluke. In case you haven’t heard, Roger was first A in Open and one of only two shooters in A, M and GM classes to actually shoot their current classification. The only other one was the match winner, JJ Racaza. If you are interested in some more interesting stats about the Nationals, click here. The wide open Limited division was won by Gary Goad with Limited 10 being taken by Dewayne Gainous. The Production winner was Michael McDonald, the Single Stack winner as Chris Brown and Ethan Boudreax handily took Carry Optics and was 6th overall, which was pretty darn sporty.

Once again, this match would not have run as smoothly as it did without the help of the faithful setup squad, who always seem to appear out of the darkness on Sunday mornings to get everything set up just right. There are too many names to mentions but they know who they are. As always, the props were put up most expeditiously today, which is always great to see. I want to personally thank Bryan Guillory for bringing cold waters today, as well. I don’t know if today was a record for a regular Biloxi match, but if not, it was close. Thank you to everyone for coming out today. Gerwin can rest easy, knowing that Roger can put on a match every bit as good as his Dad!

I have been told by several shooters who use iPhones the match today seems to have an issue displaying the scores in the Practiscore Competitor app. If you don’t know what this is, then don’t worry. If you do use this app to view your results (and you should…), and your iPhone can’t seem to pull the actual scores down, don’t worry. You are in good company. I will be emailing PS support tomorrow about this. You can still see the score on the PS web site, though.

The next regularly scheduled match will be the Sunday after Thanksgiving, but we still plan to shoot then, maybe just a bit slower from the normal gorging that goes on at that time of year.

One final note for the shooters of South Mississippi. As mentioned before the match today, the next Poplarville match, scheduled for Nov. 11 has been cancelled because it falls on the same weekend as the Gator. A large number of the Poplarville regulars will be in Shreveport at the Gator, so we’ll just call that “our” match…
