December Brothers N Arms USPSA Match Results

December 15, 2018 Leave a comment

Dammit boy, this was a wet year!  Hopefully, 2019 will have a little more sunshine on the weekends.  A year ago, with the rain that we had this week, today’s match would have had to be cancelled.  Thanks to the constant work and maintenance of our range owners, such was not the case today.  Thirty-four shooters were able to enjoy moderate temps under overcast skies and it was only muddy in the paces where it was wet.  😀  Joking aside, the Green family has worked very hard to try to continuously improve their facilities and those efforts are really starting to pay dividends.

As you know this is a volunteer sport and I continue to be impressed with our local competitors in this regard.  We had tons of help with final setup this morning ( you have no idea how much this appreciated) and tear down today was incredibly fast.  A special shout out to Squad Three.  They finished first and not only broke down their last stage, but the the stage next to them as well.  This kind of effort is invaluable when you have six stages but only four squads.  Thank you!

The top five spots were dominated by Open and Limited shooters, but the top dog today was Read more…

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…
