For a change, the weather was NOT threatening, nor was it too hot. It turned out to be a great day, weather-wise. This seemed to bring everyone out to play. In addition, Limited division was up for grabs as the three local Limited shooters who normally vie for top spot were all at Limited Nationals this weekend.

Thanks to the 2018 USPSA Optics Nationals experience that Roger Henn, George Miller and Bill Jackson gained in Frostproof, FL this past weekend, 68 shooters were treated to some of the stages they shot there. Stage 1, the “next-year” classifier proved to be as difficult as it did at Nationals. You just can’t miss fast enough to score well, even though many tried. The PCC guys ruled this stage. Stages 4 and 5 were as close to the Nationals versions as we could make them, and they performed similarly to the Nationals. They were challenging, but fair. A good test of your basic skills. The rest of the new classifiers coming won’t be any easier than stage 1, so get ready!

With the big turnout, the match moved along pretty well. With the nice weather, it made for a pleasant morning, as long as you were shooting well. Heck, it was still nice even with a miss here or there! But there is always one person who seems to get it all together. Today that person was  Read more…

September 2018 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

The threat of rain seemed to scare off a bunch of people today (38 total shooters, down from 56 at the peak of registration), and it’s too bad because we had a quick but challenging match today. Only one pistol shooter managed to shoot clean (way to go, Gerald!). We shot 3 classifiers in addition to 2 regular field stages, with the thought being we would get rain around the middle of the match, and we wanted to try to move things along to head that off. It turned out the weather man was full of baloney today, because we were never even threatened by rain. 

The classifiers were challenging in their own right. One featured a bit of everything with 3 strings that included 3 draws, two mag changes and strong hand and weak hand shooting at a mix of open and partial Classic targets. Another required little to no aiming, but focused on how rapidly you could squeeze the trigger 5 times in a row. The field courses featured a good mix of partials with a few open targets thrown in to make you change gears often.

When the scores were finally synced, there was a new face at the top of the heap. Congratulations to  Read more…

We hoped we could get the match in without weather interruptions, but that didn’t happen. Two brief but intense rain showers disrupted the match around the 4th and 5th stages but they didn’t mess things up too much. They lasted only a few minutes and the targets made it through reasonably well. But that couldn’t put a damper on the great shooting that was on display today.

A total of 61 competitors faced off on 5 challenging stages. There were turtle targets in abundance and plenty of hard cover and no shoots lurking about. Strong hand only and weak hand only were tested on the classifier, as well. There wasn’t much room to hose today. In fact, only one shooter in the entire match got all his hits and had zero no-shoots or mikes (even the no-penalty variety). Way to go, Scott! But it took flat-out speed to win today.
