80% of Open shooters aren’t as good as they think!

October 25, 2018 4 comments

Local shooters George Miller, Roger Henn and I competed at the USPSA Optics Nationals in Florida in the Open division this past weekend (Sat-Mon). We found tough, but fair stages that really tested our fundamental skills. There was a mix of standards courses with lots of reloads (Open shooters aren’t supposed to have to reload that much) and strong and weak hand shooting, medium courses where you needed to move quickly though the targets and be as accurate as possible, and a healthy dose of field courses with significant movement and lots of long distance targets (hence, the OPTICS part…). Targets occasionally sported some sort of cover, of both the hard and no-shoot variety. There were also swingers and bobbers mixed in for good measure. But none of what we saw was brand new.

While I had set my expectations on just shooting my current level of skill, Read more…

October Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

October 20, 2018 Leave a comment

Dense fog gave some of our shooters with longer drives issues, and there was a very slight sprinkle towards the end of the match, but other than that, the day’s weather was relatively mild i.e. warm and doggone humid.  Forty-one competitors took advantage of it and enjoyed five challenging stages plus a classifier that that I think no one hopes shows up again anytime soon.  Kudos once again to Justin Green for some very fun stages that were a great combination of movement and strategy.   As always, thanks for all of the help with set up and breakdown, especially those folks that were there at 7 am.  You know who you are!

The top five spots were closely contested by largely the same 5 competitors, with the day’s top two shooters trading number one on almost every stage like a couple of prize fighters going toe to toe.  When the smoke cleared though, the top dog both overall and in Open, but by only slightly more than two percent, was  Read more…

September Brothers n Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

September 15, 2018 Leave a comment

Fall doesn’t officially start until September 23, and you could certainly tell by the temperature at today’s match!  Forty folks braved heat indexes over 100 degrees to come out to shoot six fun and challenging stages.  Hats off to Justin Green for once again putting together a great mix of stages.  Thanks also to everyone that helped with setup and tear down, none of this would happen without you!  On to the scores.

The Dupuy brothers made their return after a summer off from our match, and did so very impressively.  Both placed decisively in the top five overall, but the day belonged to  Read more…

August Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match Results

August 18, 2018 Leave a comment

Well, like the man said, sometimes you just get lucky.  The morning in Hattiesburg was foggy and over cast.  Thunderstorms in other parts of south Mississippi caused some shooters to withdraw (you know who ya’ll are…I think you just wanted an excuse to stay in bed).  Less than an hour after the match was over, the rain began in Hattiesburg and continues even as I write this.  Today’s special classifier match, however, went off without a hitch from the weather, a rarity this year for the clubs in our area.

We had 45 guns at the range today to shoot six fairly challenging Classifiers.  Things moved quickly, both during the match and with breakdown.  This type of match is quick to shoot, but takes extra effort to set up correctly, so many, many thanks for the help with setup this morning.

When all was said and done, today’s overall winner was very clear. Read more…
