March 2019 Biloxi USPSA pistol match – **UPDATE**

March 21, 2019 Leave a comment

As you may have seen, there is some significant work going on with several of the bays at the range in Biloxi. As a result, we will not be able to use two of our normal bays for the match Sunday.

This leaves us with just three bays available which isn’t all that great for a match. We still plan to shoot but with a couple of changes:

  1. We will not have a USPSA classifier
  2. We will have only three stages but each will be AT LEAST 40 rounds and could go as high as 50
  3. Match fees will be reduced to $10 for CRPC members and $15 for non-members
  4. Right now, we have 62 people signed up, and that means 21 man squads

There is really no other solution available at this time that meets our needs. If you do not want to make the drive for just three super jumbo stages, we certainly understand. But it can’t be helped. If you choose to withdraw, we would greatly appreciate it if you would formally withdraw using Practiscore (the link below will do the trick).

The weather is just too nice to cancel, so this is our plan. You’ll probably get the same number of rounds as you would in a normal 5-stage match, but in only 3 stages. And there’s no risk of affecting your classification, either. But there will be more standing around, too. The up side is reset should go super fast with so many people per squad (hint, hint)!!!

March 2019 Poplarville USPSA Pistol match **CANCELLED**

The South Mississippi Practical Shooting Association USPSA Pistol match scheduled for March 10, 2019 has been cancelled, due to competing matches in Alabama and Texas. Additionally, the road into the range has been damaged significantly by heavy equipment and the large amount of rainfall over the past few weeks. We won’t be able to get this fixed for a while, so we are just going to skip the March match. We will be back in April.

February 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

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…

**UPDATE 1**

These are the number of slots the MS Section received for the 2019 Nationals

Open/PCC – 5
Limited/Carry Optics – 3
Production/L10 – 3
Single Stack/Revolver – 3

Are you interested in shooting the 2019 USPSA Nationals? Are you ready to compete with the best in the sport? If so, you have the chance to shoot one of the toughest matches you’ll ever see. The 2019 USPSA Nationals will be held St. George, Utah in September and Frostproof, Florida in November. There will actually be four separate matches of three days each, with each match covering two divisions. For more information about this match, click here.

If you are interested in shooting this match, you will need to request a slot. A slot is your guaranteed ticket to the match, as long as you send in your money! To get a slot, you will need to request one. The Mississippi Section will be awarded a certain number of slots on February 22, and we hope there are enough to go around. If not, the presidents of the Mississippi clubs will use your 2018 local match participation, along with several other factors in determining who will get the available slots. To request a slot, go to this link or click the big button below.  Registration for slots will close on March 22 at 5 PM. When you register does not count for anything. Slots should be awarded by March 28th or thereabouts. You can start using the slot codes to register for the actual Nationals match on March 29, 2019

If you are awarded a slot, you must register with USPSA by May 29, or your slot will expire. If you request and then receive a slot, but later decide you can’t make it, you should return the slot to us so it can be given to someone else.
