February 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

February 24, 2019 Leave a comment


While the overnight weather certainly didn’t help, it turned out to be pretty much a non-factor. We expected (and got) quite a bit of rain over Saturday night into early Sunday morning, but you couldn’t tell that from the condition of the range. We have shot there in way worse conditions. It was damp-ish, but there was no standing water in the stage areas, and the mud factor was pretty low. I don’t think it affected the movement at all, at least for most people. Anyway, Sunday morning brought a darn nice day for a match. It was sunny all day and close to 70 by the time we left.

While online registration got as high as 59, in the end there were 43 shooters when the hammers dropped. It’s not unusual to lose so many due to the threat of weather, but if you used that as your excuse today, you missed a good one for no reason. As usual, the stages were challenging, with tough shots on partials and middle distance targets everywhere. Several stages offered so many plan options that it was hard to pick one and stick with it. Seeing your fellow shooters walk a completely different plan than yours can be disconcerting, especially if you are up next or on deck. But you just have to stick with YOUR plan at that point. Good stages are always marked by a preponderance of plans where no one way seems the best for everybody. Great job, Roger and Gerwin!

When the scores were finally tallied, it looked pretty much like normal, with maybe a few exceptions. Our overall and Open division winner today was Read more…

February Brothers N Arms USPSA Match Results

What started out as a fairly dreary morning turned out to be a really nice day for a pistol match, even if we did have to wade in some mud on a few stages.  Turn out was good, with 41 folks coming out, and Justin came through again with five great stages that had multiple solutions and made every shooter have to think.  Thanks again to those who were able to get there early enough to help Cliff and I with final set up.  We can’t tell you enough how much your efforts are appreciated!

At the end of the day, there were some familiar names at the top of the scoreboard, but the top shooter let no doubt about the who the winner was. Read more…

Just a quick note to let everyone know that tomorrows math is still on.  While we have had a bit of dreary, misty, drizzly day, the range is still in good shape.  I look forward to seeing you all there!

Dawson Precision“Next month, we’ll be back to normal…” That’s how I ended last month’s writeup. Today was anything BUT normal. No, it wasn’t freaky February weather (which was quite pleasant today) or more super high-round-count stages (fun, heck yes! but not normal). Some important lessons were dished out today for all to enjoy. It started with the trips (plural) to Dairy Queen. Before we get into the scores, it is important to note who didn’t make it through the match. I don’t normally mention these somewhat unpleasant events, but today was noteworthy. We’ve all been there before, but it still is unexpected for certain people.  Read more…

February 2019 Poplarville 3-Gun match results

February is always an iffy month, weather-wise. Today, we lucked out and got a really pleasant day for 3-gun. By the end of the match it was in the low 70’s and the sun was out. And that made for some fun stages for the 16 shooters in the match.

The four stages looked straightforward, but proved more challenging than expected. We finally got to shoot some long-range rifle at the beginning of a stage, which meant there was no excuse accepted along the lines of being out of breath. This helped quite a few people with their hits on the long steel. On that stage, there were also paper pistol targets out to 50 yards.

It seemed like everyone enjoyed the stages and we had two brand-new to 3-gun shooters with us today. In fact, at 10 am, yesterday morning, we only had 10 people registered. By this morning, there were 16. Word must have gotten out about the fantastic stages…

In what seemed to be a Groundhog Day-like result,  Read more…
