August 2019 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson Precision For once, the weather not only cooperated but was a big help. After a week of blistering heat and humidity, we dodged two big weather bullets for the match today. This should have been the eighth match of the year, but it was actually just the fourth, and we really needed to shoot.  Although rain wasn’t really in the forecast for today, we managed to miss some serious storms just to the south of the range. We also caught a break with the overcast skies pretty much all morning. It was humid, but the clouds made it much more bearable. I can tell you from personal experience this week setting up that without the clouds, we wouldn’t have wanted to be there.

The match today could be characterized in two words. “New shooters”. We had at least 8 brand new to USPSA shooters and at least a handful more new to us and pretty new to USPSA. And it was great! A huge round of thanks goes to Peter and George for bringing out most of them and helping get them acquainted with the rules. In my squad, everyone got through their first match and seemed to have fun, as well. We all had a first match in our past and sometimes its hard to remember just how scary it was. Thank you to everybody who helped with the new shooters today. I know they appreciated it.

OK, enough of the chit-chat. Let’s see who won. It really wasn’t that close when the dust settled. At the top was Bryan Tullos with a convincing victory of more than 5% overall. In Open, he was more than 10% better than the next shooter. In Limited, Jonathan Parker took the win convincingly. Bob Brandt won the Production title, while Jason Welch took the top PCC spot and 2nd overall. And finally, Max, Sr. won in Carry Optics. Congratulations to all the new shooters who successfully completed their first USPSA match. We hope to see you back next time.

While the turnout today didn’t set any records, it was pretty good, considering how hot it has been recently. Thank you to everyone who was able to come out today, and to those that couldn’t, well, you missed another great match. The stages were designed for the heat (relatively quick and not a lot of running), but they still forced you to either think a lot or aim a lot. And sometimes, both! Let’s hope September brings cooler temps.

And as always, thank you to everyone for helping to get everything torn down and picked up. That is what I appreciate the most!
