April 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

 


Today was about as good as it gets, weather-wise. The temperature was mild, the sun was out and the humidity was low (for us…). The turnout was also great with 57 shooters actually shooting the match. We had reached as high as 72 at one point during the registration period, but there is always a certain percentage of no-shows for any match. It was a good number, and for the most part, things went smoothly. There was a bit of an imbalance in the stages that caused some backups, but hey, it was a nice day!

Once again, the Henn design team outdid themselves with some fun, but really technically challenging stages today. Only one person managed to shoot the match clean. However, the overall match winner discovered that you can actually shoot fast enough to make up for your mistakes. The overall match winner was 9 seconds (total time) faster than the shooter who came in second (and 5 seconds ahead of the next fastest shooter). That was good for about 10% right there.

In case you aren’t able to figure it out, the match winner today was Roger Henn, who pretty much ran away with the match with a 10.5% margin over 2nd. In this case, his hits were just so-so (only 9 people has fewer Alphas than Roger), but the time was the determining factor. Roger was first in Open as well (duh). In Limited, Steve Tannetta shot a super great match to take this division win and he was 3rd overall, ahead of several really good Open shooters. This wasn’t a particularly Limited friendly match, either. In Production, Ken Cornwell took the top spot with a decisive win. The Single Stack win was taken by Chris Dimenna, while the biggest division today (Carry Optics) was won by Kevin Leonhardt. And last but not least, the PCC winner was Jason Welch.

The stages today featured lots of movement, lots of partials with no-shoots and lots of transitions. If those are your strong suits, then you probably did pretty well. If not, then you know how that turned out.

Thanks to everyone who was able to help get their stage taken down and put up. That part seemed to go very well today. And thanks again to Gerwin and Roger for all they do, as well as the early morning setup crew.
