September 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionEven a “hurricane” earlier in the week couldn’t kill this match and we shot under fair skies and on a dry range. While it was warm (hot, maybe?), there was a breeze most of the morning and it really wasn’t too bad, weather-wise. A total of 44 shooters made it out to be challenged by 5 tough stages, and most found it deceptively difficult. Nothing looked too hard at first glance, but there were only 3 shooters with a no Mike or No-shoot day so that pretty much says it all.

Probably the worst peril we faced today was not the weather, but the love bugs. It’s that time of year again and they were EVERYWHERE! Hopefully, no one inhaled a mating pair while shooting.

OK, so let’s get to the scores. That’s what we all want to know. Since it was John Nguyen’s birthday yesterday, he took the day off today and that left some room at the top for a new face. The overall winner for today came from the Limited ranks, and not the usual Open division. Congratulations to  Read more…

September 2018 Poplarville USPSA Pistol match **UPDATE 2**

When I left the range this afternoon, the road was in decent shape so we should be good to go tomorrow. I have changed the proposed classifier to 06-06. The original planned didn’t fit in the space available.

If you haven’t yet registered, there is still room.

The stages were built today and they look like this: SMPSA 2018-09 match book.

The road was OK this afternoon, but it may have rained there after I left. I will be back tomorrow afternoon to check it out and make a final call by early evening (on Saturday).

If you haven’t yet registered, there is still room.

August 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionWe finally managed to get the July match in, but it took three tries over 5 weeks. The regularly scheduled July match was rained out the afternoon before with a monsoon. We rescheduled the match for the 5th Sunday and the same thing happened, with a frog strangler the afternoon before the match. The range might have been OK, but the road in was out of commission. Today, the rain gods stayed somewhere else and we got to shoot 6 tough stages that were just waiting for us all this time.

The turnout was a bit light due to some late cancellations and a big handful of no-shows this morning, but that just meant the 25 folks that did make it out were able to breeze through the match and be done well before Noon. It was hot at times, but we had a nice breeze most of the morning and when you were under one of the pop-ups, it was almost pleasant.

I was pleased with how the stages turned out today. They proved to be as challenging as I had hoped. Only one shooter shot a clean match today. Way to go, Don Albares! To the rest of you, thanks for playing. Quite a few of us will be representing South Mississippi and Louisiana in the upcoming Nationals, and our local clubs are making a concerted effort to toughen up the local matches in preparation for what we know will be hard stages at the national level. Today’s mix was fair, offered numerous options on most cases, and rewarded those who had a good plan and executed it with the fewest penalties.

Since everyone except one shooter had at least one penalty (Mike, No-Shoot or Procedure), the match came down to consistency. Our match winner today was  Read more…
