July 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

July 15, 2017 Leave a comment

The day dawned a bit foggy and very overcast, which actually kept the temps moderate and made for a great start for 38 shooters at today’s match.  Also, for the first time, we opened up membership to our USPSA chapter and we sincerely thank all who took advantage of the offer.  Your support is much appreciated and will make the club even better as we move forward!!

Even with all of the recent rain, the range conditions were more than acceptable.  The stages had a great combination of movement and round count and everyone loved the “Burn ’em Down” stage in bay 5.  At the end of the day, Open shooters ruled the day, taking 7 of the top 10 spots.  The match winner Read more…

July 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

July 9, 2017 Leave a comment

Registration is open for the July 2017 USPSA Pistol Match at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg. This month’s event will have at least 5 stages, including a classifier.

With a year as a USPSA sanctioned club under our belt, a couple of ways to more closely align our methods of operation with other area clubs have been decided on.  A couple of slight changes have been made so please take note!

In an effort to streamline the registration process, checking in at the Range House is no longer necessary; though you should feel free to stop in for a cup of coffee or to use the rest room.  Simply park where you normally would on the range grounds and look for the registration table by the storage container.

Second, membership in the Brothers N Arms MS17 USPSA chapter itself (I know, it’s a mouthful, we’re working on it) is now open to all for $40.00 annually.  This will allow the club access to capital that helps us keep equipment up to date and will give the paid member a $5 discount on match fees.  So, non-members shoot for $20, members shoot for $15, and Juniors shoot for $10.

Lastly, the match in August will be a Special Classifier match with at least 6 stages, each being a USPSA sanctioned Classifier Stage.  If you have been wanting to get that L10, Carry Optics, or PCC classification and you’re in a hurry, this is your chance.  If you would like to work on more than one classification, simply register separately in each class of interest and arrive with all equipment necessary to shoot each.  Of course, each registration requires it’s own fee and please limit yourself to two registrations for the match.

Setup starts at 7:00 am and registration/check-in ends at 8:30 am.  No walk-ons after 8:30, no exceptions.  There will be a new shooters meeting at 8:30 and a mandatory safety meeting at 8:45. The match starts promptly at 9:00 am.

June 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match CANCELLATION

June 22, 2017 Leave a comment

With great regret, the decision has been made to cancel this Saturday’s USPSA Pistol Match.  With the amount of rain we have received, the bays are simply too wet to be able to set up and actually holding the match would most likely result in significant damage to the facilities.  We appreciate everyone registering and we hope to see you next month.

Please note that our match is being moved to the third Saturday for the months of July, August, and September to help accommodate our friends in Biloxi holding the Section Championships through out the summer.

Most of you are aware of the Mississippi State Championships being held throughout the summer by our friends at the Biloxi USPSA Club.  In light of this, we are moving our schedule for the Brothers N Arms July, August, and September matches to the 3rd Saturday of each of those months.  We hope this will enable those shooting the championship matches to more easily fit our match into their schedule and perhaps even to use it as a “warm-up”.

May 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

May 27, 2017 Leave a comment

The day dawned overcast and misty but shaped up to be a beautiful May Saturday for 62 shooters at the May Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match.  I’ll have to check, but that may be a tie for the highest attendance at the club so far!  I’ll get to the results shortly, but please indulge me for a short personal observation.

In the short 18 months or so that I have been involved in this sport, I have learned an incredible amount.  Most of this knowledge has come from being around you, the shooters, and by keeping my ears open.  One thing I heard some time ago that stuck with me came from a much admired friend and mentor, Read more…

May 2017 Brothers n Arms USPSA Pistol Match

May 21, 2017 Leave a comment

Registration is open for the May USPSA Pistol Match at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg. This month’s event will have at least 5 stages, including  a classifier.

Though it is still technically spring, summer temperatures are already starting to creep in on us.  That being said, we have added some new awnings to make sure there is ample shade for everyone at each stage.  We have also had a few requests to add Pistol Caliber Carbine to our match and the decision has been made to do so.  You’ll find it now as an option on the registration form.  If you are shooting PCC, it goes without saying that you should be familiar with and clear on the rules in the addendum.

Setup starts at 7:00 am and registration/check-in ends at 8:30 am.  No walk-ons after 8:30, no exceptions.  There will be a new shooters meeting at 8:30 and a mandatory safety meeting at 8:45. The match starts promptly at 9:00 am.

Payment will be due upon arrival.  If you are a member of the Brothers N Arms Range, $15 will be due.  Otherwise, the entry fee is $20.  To register, just click here  or on the big button below.

April 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

April 22, 2017 Leave a comment

Well, it’s official.  The Brothers N Arms USPSA Club has a full year under it’s belt.  I for one, feel privileged to be a part of both this organization and of USPSA.  The knowledge, skill, and friendships gained is irreplaceable.  Thanks to everyone that has helped make it happen – Cliff Gaddis, Greg Hammer, Jamie Humphrey, the Green Family and Brothers N Arms – but most of all, thanks to you, the shooters. You have helped us setup and tear down, but most of all, you showed up!  Without that, nothing else matters!!

Even with the Area 6 event underway, 44 folks turned out today to shoot 7 Read more…
