January 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

 


As I sit down to write this, the Sun is shining, the temperature is moderate and it appears to be a very nice afternoon. My only question is, where the heck was this weather this morning?! We should be thankful it wasn’t raining, and it wasn’t below freezing, but for the entire match, it was very cool and overcast and it wasn’t one of those days you relish being outside. It tried to warm up during the match, but it never quite got there. The Sun tried to break through, but it never did. I suppose it could have been worse, so I’ll quit complaining now.

It was a fun match today, with relative low round count stages and an inversely high level of difficulty. How hard, you ask? Well, the overall match winner was the only one to shoot the match clean (no Mikes or No-shoots). If fact, only two shooters had no Mikes for the whole match. There were no scores showing a hit factor of 10 or higher, and most were significantly below that mark (i.e. no hoser stages today) . It was a lot of shoot, move, shoot, move, and so on. The stages were challenging without being gimmicky and tough without being unfair. Oh, yeah, and interesting as well.

This was one of those matches where you felt that without your careless mistakes, you might have done pretty well. I certainly felt that way. And while the overall winner is thinking he was slow here or there, he shot with fewer mistakes than any of the wanna-be’s and took home the title once again. Congratulations to John Nguyen for the overall and Open win. While shooting only the 3rd fastest overall time, and not even the highest percentage of available points, it was the lack of any scored errors that did it today. The battle for second in Open was extremely close with Roger Henn barely squeaking by Phillip Sexton by just 0.2 match points or 0.04%. That is the difference between just on A or C hit, or less than 0.05 seconds just about anywhere. That’s close. David Pape took the win in the Limited division, while Gerwin Henn crossed over to Production to score a victory there. Kevin Leonhardt was a convincing winner in Carry Optics. Chris Dimenna shot extremely well in Single Stack to win there (11th overall) and Ethan Boudreaux took the PCC crown. Congratulations to all the division winners. And to those using Practiscore Competitor to see how you would have done without those pesky mistakes, there may be hope for you, yet. Then again, maybe not.

A big thanks goes out to the DH setup crew for getting everything designed and built this morning. Additionally, thank you to all the shooters for getting everything torn down and put up when the shooting was done. We appreciate your support and hope you enjoyed today’s match.

    I believe it stands for “Designated Hitter”
