September 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

With the G-Man back in the driver’s seat, the difficulty stepped up just a bit. No high hit factor stages were present today, but there were plenty of long shots, tight shots, no-shoots and a fair amount of steel. All these factors seemed to challenge folks more than normal. Be that as it may, it was still a fun match.

The weather wasn’t too bad, with just a bit of heat and sun at times, but nothing like this Summer. The turnout was decent with 40 shooters navigating the 5 stages. There were a handful of new shooters today and everyone seemed to get through the match OK. Thank you for coming out to shoot with us today!

For those who previewed the scores at the range or got them on PS moments after they were posted, there was a mistake in scoring that, when corrected, resulted in a change to the top few positions. At first, I was surprised and delighted to see that I finished 3rd overall and had beaten my mentor, Gerwin, in head to head competition with open guns, but it was not to be. A procedure penalty on me on stage 2 was recorded improperly. Once it was updated, I dropped to 5th. Darn it. But I would rather beat him fair and square, than by a fat fingered mistake, and that day will come…

Today saw the return of several shooters who had been on break for a couple of months, but it was clear they didn’t totally forget how to get it done. Maybe a bit of rust seeped through, but they dominated the match as they have been doing for quite some time. However, the final scores showed Read more…

August 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

After a brief one month break, we got back in action at Biloxi. The rain held off for the entire match, but the heat and humidity didn’t. At times, it was downright oppressive. But, hey. We had fun!

Possible weather concerns kept the turnout lower than normal, with just 28 shooters completing the 5 stages of fire. Things moved along smoothly and I don’t think any squads waited on anyone today. That was nice. Because Gerwin and Roger were still out on fish business, it was up to the team to fill in. We had several guest stage designers today. Special thanks goes to David Pape and Steve Tannetta for stage 5, and Jason Welch and John Nguyen for stage 4 (both design and setup were done by those duos, with setup help from others). Bryce Dupuy also designed stage 3 for us today. If you enjoyed their work, please let them know. If you didn’t, well, then come on out next month and set up what you like to shoot! We are happy to have designs from anyone.

The rather light turnout didn’t keep the competition from being the usual fierce battle for supremacy, but when everything was tallied up, there was a clear winner. By a margin of about 6.5%, Read more…

July 2019 Biloxi USPSA pistol match – CANCELLED

July 21, 2019 Leave a comment

The July 2019 edition of the Deep South Shooters Association USPSA pistol match (scheduled for July 28, 2019) has been cancelled. Gerwin and Roger are opening a new store and will be unavailable to set up and run the match this coming weekend. Several other members of the regular setup crew are still on the IR list, so the Henns have cancelled.

If you are still interested in shooting something, there will be a Steel Challenge match at the range in Biloxi on the Sunday that would normally be USPSA pistol. You can register for that match here.

Why do we shoot in the Summer? Well, that was the question of the day. It was so hot… (Fill in your own punch line). Yes, it was hot, real hot, damn hot, all kinds of hot. But most of us survived. The match had some “deceptively hard” stages and there were lots of Mikes and No-shoots tallied today by almost everyone.

The turnout was down from our normal numbers, maybe due to the heat, or possibly the last day of the Mississippi CQB match in Hattiesburg. But it mattered not. Those that did make it were treated to some serious Henn Zen. Gerwin and Roger came up with some great stages and they impressed pretty much everyone. Tough, challenging, humbling, take your pick. These were not your ordinary hose-em up stages. In the end, the scores were all over the place.

But rising to the top was a familiar name, who resisted (mostly) the temptation to just grip it and rip it. Your Open division winner and high overall shooter was none other than Read more…
