July 2018 Poplarville USPSA Pistol match **CANCELLED*

The match in Poplarville has been cancelled, due to heavy rain on Saturday afternoon. The range got heavy rain last night, and was accessible only with 4WD today for setup, but the rain washed that away.

We MAY reschedule the match for next Sunday, but I have to work out a few things first. Sorry…

June 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionIt was HOT, HOT, HOT today but that didn’t stop 43 determined, if slightly crazy, shooters from enjoying one of the more challenging matches in a long time at the range in Poplarville. We were in Summer mode, even through it isn’t officially Summer yet, and that meant no steel, and not too much running. But that didn’t mean it wasn’t hard. As it turned out, every single target in the match today had either a no-shoot partially covering it or a portion of the target painted with hard cover. There weren’t any real hoser stages, much less any hoser targets. You had to at least aim a bit on every target. There were lots of black and white pasters in use today.

We had a tiny problem at the end of the match. The overly aggressive tear-down crew dismantled the classifier before the last squad got to shoot it. Fortunately, it only took a few minutes to set it back up, so everyone got to enjoy a miserable classifier. I’m sorry I picked that one and I won’t do it ever again! The highest score in the match was a decent A class score but it was from a GM Limited shooter. A few did well for their classification, but most didn’t. Hopefully, if you weren’t one of the lucky ones, you tanked it bad enough not to hurt your own classification.

When it comes to the overall scores, we had a return to the top spot for  Read more…

June 2018 Poplarville USPSA Pistol match UPDATE!

June 9, 2018 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionA few quick notes about tomorrow’s match in Poplarville.

  1. It will be hot. We will have some bottled water available, but make sure you stay hydrated. The pop-up tents will be in use.
  2. The stages will not require a great deal of movement (think Mississippi Classic, not).
  3. There will be NO completely open targets, but there will be lots of black and white pasters available in your buckets.
  4. This will be called the Jack Bauer Invitational match. You’ll find out what that means tomorrow.
  5. We expect a big crowd, and those that arrive late should plan on parking up on top of the hill before you enter the pit.
  6. The classifier will be 99-40

There are still slots left in the match so if you just have to find out why Jack Bauer is involved, then sign up and come on out!

May 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

May 13, 2018 2 comments

Dawson PrecisionWe finally caught a break with the rain that plagued the late winter and spring season and were able to shoot on the normal day. For the past two months, we had to delay the Sunday match to the middle of the next week, which cut out quite a few people. The afternoon matches were great and the weather was wonderful, but it was mostly the retired folks who could make it. Today, we had to contend with Mother’s Day, which happens every year. But the match turnout was decent with 32 shooters enjoying the abundant sunshine.

Since the Mississippi Classic makes it’s triumphant return next weekend, we set up stages that were a bit more challenging than normal. Today featured lots of hard cover and a greater than normal no-shoot population. Tough shots put everyone to the test, hopefully getting ready for next week. The Classic stages look great, but none of them look like they will be easy. Good luck to everyone who is shooting.

When the 5 stages were complete, the winner was once again a familiar face to the Poplarville podium. Congratulations to  Read more…
