August 2018 Poplarville pistol match results

August 12, 2018 1 comment

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…

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…
