March 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

 


The weather was just too nice to not shoot, so we did. With the range work on two of our usual bays not quite complete, we thought we might have to cancel. However, we made a change to the usual format, so instead of 5 stages including a classifier, we shot just 3 stages with no classifier. However, those 3 stages had round counts of 44, 37 and 48 rounds respectively. That’s about the round count for a normal 5 stage match.

One of the downsides to having only 3 bays available for shooting is only being able to support 3 squads. At the peak, we had about 62 people signed up to shoot. We made it a point to warn everyone about the format change and this resulted in a fair number dropping out. That actually worked in the favor of those who did come out, because we ended up with three 13-man squads and that seemed to work out just fine. The squads moved along nicely and the stages seemed fairly well balanced, time-wise.

With the high point stages featuring lots of movement, you expected the “fast youngins” to do well. And for the most part, they did. The overall and Open division winner falls into that category. Congratulations to Roger Henn for a dominating performance today. He won two stages and was second on the third. He was being chased all day by his dad, Gerwin, but he wasn’t able to catch Roger on any stage. He did win Limited quite handily, though. In Production, Ken Hablitzel was the winner (many of the normal Production shooters went to Limited for the high round count stages today), in Single Stack (or, truly crazy shooters for today) your winner was Rob Campbell. And, finally, Carry Optics was won by Shawn Gaines.

We expect the range work will be complete by next month (hopefully sooner) so we will be back to normal in April. Thank you to everyone for coming out today on such a nice day. I think we all enjoyed being out in the fresh air.

I have one final piece of housekeeping. I found a black, hooded, full-front-zip sweatshirt, with “Chevelle” on the front and back on stage 2 on the picnic table. If it is yours, let me know (bjinpass@gmail.com). I’ll bring it to the next match.
