March 16, 2018 Leave a comment

My apologies if this is a duplicate notification, but I have received notice that not everyone received the email I sent earlier today.  Due to the prodigious amount of rain both received today and expected tomorrow, the Brothers N Arms USPSA March Pistol match is cancelled.  We look forward to seeing you at the inaugural Steel Challenge match that will be held on the 5th Saturday this month and at the USPSA match next month.

Brothers N Arms March Match Update

March 13, 2018 Leave a comment

Well folks, I just came up for air and realized that our match had run out of room.  A good problem to have, to be sure!  I have opened up more slots so if you know anyone that tried to register today and couldn’t, please let them know that they should try again.

On another topic, the weather forecast for Friday is something slightly less than ominous regarding the chance of rain.  Know that we are watching this closely and will let everyone know our intentions for the match as soon as practical.

February 2018 GC3G 3-Gun match at MCTA

February 24, 2018 Leave a comment

It was a far cry from last month, when rain disturbed the bays ahead of time and threatened to wash the match away all morning. Today was a pleasant, if not unseasonably warm, South Mississippi WINTER day. With no threat of rain, the stage designers cut loose this month and turned it up to 11 (or whatever the shooting equivalent of 11 is). With only three stages to contend with, it made for a challenging but manageable day from a time standpoint. For just the second match for the Gulf Coast 3 Gun club, things are looking pretty good. There are still a few details to work on, but they’ll get there.

The match offered a plethora of different divisions to entice virtually any shooter and the stage difficulty was just about right. The distances stepped out considerably from the first match (last month) and required some rifle shots out to 80 yards or greater with the hindrance of a barricade with small shooting ports to just make it not too easy. There were required reloads that managed to trip up more than a few shooters, and dirt colored steel targets for the shotgun that blended in with the terrain. Such is the life of a 3-gun shooter…

When the smoke cleared, there were a few clear winners. Read more…

February Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

February 18, 2018 2 comments

I’ll have to look back to make sure, but I do believe we set an attendance record at yesterday’s match!  At one point, we had 78 shooters registered.  Once hammers fell at 9:00, we had 66 competitors take to the field on what turned out to one of the nicest days we have had around here in awhile.  While the classifier, Take Your Choice, appeared quite simple and straightforward, the combination of a barricade and a reload proved to be more challenging than many expected.  Five squads worked their way through the other five challenging stages designed and built by our very own Justin Green, one of the owners of the Brothers N Arms Range.  Thanks for the great work, Justin, I’ve had a lot of positive comments!

We had a great turn out from new shooters and were very pleased to have them.  One reminder, though.  If you were a new shooter and did not have your USPSA member number in time for the match yesterday, you will need to send it to me once you do have it.  I can then re-submit the scores to USPSA so that yesterday’s classifier will count towards your classification.

At the end of the day one shooter stood above the rest both overall and in the Open division. Read more…
