October 2019 Poplarville pistol match results

October 13, 2019 Leave a comment

Dawson Precision What a nice match today! The weather was pleasant for a change, and the stages were challenging but certainly fun. The company was great, as well. Who could ask for more?

Out of the 26 shooters that took on the five stages today, only three were able to shoot a clean match. That didn’t guarantee a win, though, because appearances were deceiving. Nothing looked particularly hard, but I guess it was right around the zone of where most people start disrespecting the targets. Too far to point shoot, but too close to aim (LOL!). We all know we need to aim all the time, but many of us took it for granted and tallied some Mikes or the dreaded no-shoot. But taking time to “get your hits” isn’t always the answer, either. You just need to “…shoot at the speed of sight¹.”

The setup today certainly did favor the hi-cap guns, especially the never-empty PCC. It should therefore come as no surprise that a PCC shooter took top honors. Congratulations to Read more…

October 2019 Poplarville 3-Gun match results

We were extremely lucky today, weather-wise. During setup yesterday, we had an intense rain event that put the road in really bad shape. Getting out was tough, and it was possible only due to gravity. The concern this morning was that the hill would still be slick as owl poop. It actually wasn’t too bad and only one vehicle needed some assistance. But that wasn’t the end of the weather. During the match, it was pretty nice, considering how hot it has been lately. We finished just before 2 PM, which is great. But just as I pulled out of the pit at 2:45, the bottom dropped out of the sky and it rained hard. Had this come an hour or two earlier, it would have messed up the last stages for the squads and made it downright dangerous getting DOWN the hill. But, the weather gods finally saw it our way, and it worked out.

In past matches, the stages never quite seemed balanced and one squad would always be waiting. Today, it worked out like a dream. The stages were just right to keep things moving and both squads finished the match within 5 minutes of each other. I guess we are living right these days.

If you recall last month, Morgan Leonhardt (12 years old) won the match over 15 adult males. Some may have thought that was a fluke. However, if you have shot 3-gun with her, you know it wasn’t. And, she continues to improve each month. Today, she beat all the other shooters again, EXCEPT one. And that one was Read more…
