September 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Match

September 17, 2017 2 comments

Thirty nine shooters came out for what was technically the last match of the summer at the Brothers N Arms club yesterday.  We got off to a bit of a foggy start, but before long the sun came out and let us know that it is, indeed, still summer, no matter what the calendar might say.  The six stages moved along nicely with a good round count, a fair amount of steel, and lots of movement.  Many thanks to our Match Director, Cliff Gaddis, for the hard work he puts into both the selection and setting up of our stages each month!

Limited was our largest division by a good margin and had four of the top five shooters in it’s ranks, including the top competitor overall, Read more…

BPSA events suspended indefinitely.

September 15, 2017 Leave a comment

Greetings shooters!

Despite numerous attempts and good faith negotiations on my part, I’ve been unable to reach an agreement with our host range (CRPC) to continue operating matches at their facility, and as of now all BPSA events have been suspended indefinitely.

This means tomorrow’s 3gn team event is cancelled, as well as next weekend’s limited state championship.

I’ll be contacting competitors to issue refunds over the weekend.

Thanks to all of you for the many years of support and hard work you’ve given to help make BPSA possible, it has truly been a humbling and very rewarding experience to be a part of, and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

I’d also like to wish CRPC and the newly formed incoming USPSA club the best in moving forward.

Despite our inability to reach an agreement, I certainly hold no animosity and look forward to continuing to participate in CRPC matches as both a member and participant going forward.

There are a lot of great folks in our area and I’m confident they will be able to continue building on the foundation I’ve built there and hopefully bring it to even further heights.

I tell my guys all the time that no one is irreplaceable, including myself. I’m sure CRPC matches will be in good hands.

As for the future of BPSA, this is just as much a shock to me as it is to you, and while I am exploring options with other facilities, as well as potentially opening our own facility, nothing is certain as of yet, nor do I expect anything to happen very soon. As always, I will keep you updated as I find out.

Again, I’d like to thank CRPC for being gracious hosts to BPSA for the past five years, it has been an incredible experience, and I wish everyone the best moving forward.

See you at the next match!

August 2017 Brothers N Arms USPSA Pistol Match

August 19, 2017 Leave a comment

The temperature rose fast and high this morning as 41 shooters came together for the Brothers N Arms Annual Special Classifier Match.  Thankfully, the stages moved quickly and the squads ran smoothly, with most were finishing up before noon.  We were very happy to have a good group of first time shooters take advantage of the classifier match.  Bringing new people to the sport is what keeps it alive and makes it great, so we hope to see all of you at another match very soon.  As always, we can’t thank our volunteers that helped with setup and all of the shooters that helped with take down enough.  We absolutely couldn’t make it happen without you!!

Now, on to the match results.   Read more…

BPSA August 2017 3GN Results!

August 19, 2017 Leave a comment

The BPSA August 2017 3GN match is in the books, and it was a hot one today. Unlike our recent state matches, we got no relief from the rain.

We had 38 shooters turn out across a variety of divisions to test their 1, 2, and 3 gun skills against five quick paced stages. We tried to put an emphasis on variety in the stages this month, and that really showed up as people where running all sorts of different plans and choosing different guns. The shotgun clay bonus targets seemed to be a big hit as well, and we look to do more stages similar to these in the future.

Now on to the action:

In Practical division, Kevin Leonhardt took the win with a final time of 78 seconds, just ahead of Aaron Fitzgerald at 80.85 seconds, and David Martian finished third with a time of 80.97.

Shappley Harris took the win in Two Gun with a final time of 102, ahead of Michael Davis at 140.

Kevin Leonhardt also took the win in Unlimited PCC ahead of David Martian, 63 to 70.

Jon Davis was first in Unlimited with a time of 91.

Factory division was won by Steven Zeringue, just edging out David Giammittorio 109 to 110.

In Heavy Sport, Jon Smith took the win uncontested with a time of 121.

In PCC Only, George Miller took the win with a time of 91, with Dennis Warren second at 110.

In Pistol Only, Michael Brolaski was uncontested with his final time of 113.

Full results can be found here:

Want to thank everyone who came out, especially those that helped setup, RO, and tear down at the end.

See you at the next match!
