January 2019 Poplarville pistol match results

January 13, 2019 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionThe first match of the new year was a bit out of the ordinary, at least as far as match content goes. Sure, the weather was flaky (used to that) and the road dicey (used to that), but the stages were anything but “used to that.” As many of you know, we shoot 3-Gun the Sunday before Pistol and last week, we had some pretty fun stages with multiple guns, and I thought that shooting them with just a pistol would be more fun, too. So, with a few minor changes (like replacing clay pigeons with steel plates), we had some big-time field courses.

A bit of rain yesterday afternoon made the hill road a little slick this morning, but almost everybody was able to get up without help. It wasn’t a perfect day for shooting but we still had 34 hearty souls come out for what may become an annual match format. It was cool and breezy all day and it made it hard to get warm. But January often isn’t our best weather, so we’ve come to expect this. Two years ago in January, it was 22 degrees and one year ago it was 24 degrees when we arrived to set up. Today’s low 40’s seemed like a heat wave, relatively speaking. But I heard more than a few wish it was August.

Five stages certainly isn’t unusual for this match, but field courses with between 43 and 48 rounds each is. Keep in mind, these came from a 3-gun match where rifle and shotguns are the norm, along side the pistol. I warned the shooters to leave the Single Stack and Production rigs at home and some heeded the call, but others still gave it the old college try. I think all the mags were eventually found, but they were everywhere!

While the PCC shooters seemed to have an advantage with the ability to shoot entire stages without reloading, it was actually an Open shooter who took first Overall. With his first match win at Poplarville,  Read more…

January 2019 Poplarville 3-Gun match results

With the New Year and January, one thing is certain. The weather is either really great or really miserable. We lucked out and got the great weather. It was the nicest day I can remember shooting anywhere in a very long time. It was crisp at 6:45 AM but by the time the match started, it was short sleeve weather. The Sun was out, the humidity gone and the temperature was perfect. We even had a really good turnout for a 3-gun match. The past two matches had just 11 shooters each, but the nice weather brought out a handful more, and 18 folks got to enjoy some just fun stages. There weren’t any super long rifle shots, and minimal shotgun reloading, but lots of challenges for everyone to solve. The long-ish range stuff still gets people who don’t seem to have their rifles dialed in at distance, but those who did were able to put some space between themselves and the quantity instead of quality shooters.

Although the results are not surprising for the overall winner, the rest of the field was a mixed bag. On top once again was  Read more…

Level II match in Hattiesburg in 2019, Yes or No?

January 1, 2019 4 comments

Would you be interested in a Level II match at the Brothers-N-Arms range in Hattiesburg, MS on Sept. 27-29, 2019 (fifth weekend in September)? The match would have at least 10 stages and could have as many as 12-13. All USPSA divisions would be represented. We are just gauging interest in this match right now. Cost would be in line with other level II matches in this area. Shooting schedules and other details are not yet finalized. The only major match scheduled for this same weekend is the 2019 USPSA “Hicap” Nationals Carry Optics and Limited division match in Utah.

 

Would you be willing to work this match as an RO and get to shoot the match for free?
