November 2017 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

November 26, 2017 5 comments

 

Weather-wise, it was hard to beat today. Especially after the total disaster that was last month. It was cool in the morning and still below 70 when we finished with sunny skies all day long. It is what you would pick if you could.

The turnout was great as well, with 54 shooters at hammer time. Towards the end of last week, we ran into an issue with the match filling up and it was reported that some folks who tried to register were told it was filled. We need to check on this to make sure this doesn’t happen again but hopefully, no one stayed away because of this. In general, at our local match, we don’t turn anyone away who comes out.

With the fine weather came some pretty fine shooting, too. The stages were well designed but with some interesting twists today, prop-wise. The PCC shooters may not have cared for this but most everyone else seemed to at least survive the manual actions needed on two of the stages. They forced you to think and get creative. When all the wailing was done, though, a winner emerged at the top of the heap. Our match winner today was  Read more…

Registration is open for the November pistol match of the Deep South Shooters Association in Biloxi. The match will be held on November 26th at the Coast Rifle and Pistol Club, starting at 9 AM. Last month was a total washout but this month’s looks a LOT better. It should be rain-free at least until after the match. If you stuck it out last month and didn’t ask for your money back, you are in line for a rain check ticket to shoot this month for free. If you can’t make it this month, it will last for at least a few more months.

Juniors shoot for free, CPRC members shoot for $15, all others shoot for $20.

October 2017 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match “results”

October 22, 2017 1 comment

The only one that made a worse call than us today was the weatherman. The forecast was for light rain by around 11 AM, so we made the decision to have have the match. Bad decision. Just about the time we got the last stage set up, the rain began. It didn’t really let up until we got everything torn down, right about the time it quit raining (for a while). By that time, there had been INCHES of rain in a couple of hours and water flowing out of the bays like rivers. Fourteen shooters were crazy enough to try to get the match in but we only managed to shoot one stage per each of the two squads, so there are no final results since no one shot both stages.

Many of the folks that did come out made the right decision to not shoot at all. Some got their match fees back. Those that didn’t but didn’t shoot will get a rain check for their next match. If you did try to shoot and only got one stage in, you will also get a rain check.

So, what did we accomplish today? Well, we wasted a bunch of targets. Even though we bagged all targets before the rain started, many still got wet and were trashed. We had hoped to get some practice in for the Gator next week, but that really didn’t happen, unless it rains there, too. We did have some quality BS time while we waited for the brief gaps in the rain bands talking about how great we were going to be in the Gator next weekend. So, it wasn’t a complete washout, but we just weren’t able to get a full match in. We tried oh so hard.

We’ll be back at it next month. Good luck to those shooting the Gator next week!
