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…

January 2019 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

As I sit down to write this, the Sun is shining, the temperature is moderate and it appears to be a very nice afternoon. My only question is, where the heck was this weather this morning?! We should be thankful it wasn’t raining, and it wasn’t below freezing, but for the entire match, it was very cool and overcast and it wasn’t one of those days you relish being outside. It tried to warm up during the match, but it never quite got there. The Sun tried to break through, but it never did. I suppose it could have been worse, so I’ll quit complaining now.

It was a fun match today, with relative low round count stages and an inversely high level of difficulty. How hard, you ask? Well, the overall match winner was the only one to shoot the match clean (no Mikes or No-shoots). If fact, only two shooters had no Mikes for the whole match. There were no scores showing a hit factor of 10 or higher, and most were significantly below that mark (i.e. no hoser stages today) . It was a lot of shoot, move, shoot, move, and so on. The stages were challenging without being gimmicky and tough without being unfair. Oh, yeah, and interesting as well.

This was one of those matches where you felt that without your careless mistakes, you might have done pretty well. I certainly felt that way. And while the overall winner is thinking he was slow here or there, he shot with fewer mistakes than any of the wanna-be’s and took home the title once again. Congratulations to  Read more…

December 2018 Biloxi (DSSA) pistol match results

December 23, 2018 Leave a comment

For the last match of the year and just two days before Christmas, we had a great turnout. A total of 46 shooters closed out the first full year for the Deep South Shooters Association with a bang, both figuratively and literally. The five stages pushed everyone to and sometimes beyond their capabilities. A couple of regulars stepped out of their comfort zone and strapped on a different division, just for a change. And we found out that it doesn’t matter a whole lot which gun you shoot for the good ones. The weather was also just about perfect with mostly overcast skies, and very mild temperatures the entire morning.

The top spot on the podium wasn’t much in doubt throughout the day, so it comes with little surprise that  Read more…
