February 2018 Poplarville 3-Gun Match **CANCELLED**

Updated 02/04/18:

The match has been cancelled due the overnight rain.

As of 6 PM on Saturday evening, the match is still on. However, a few changes are in order. First, the match will start at 10 AM instead of the normal 9 AM. Second, all registered shooters will receive an email by 7 AM with confirmation of the match status. The email will either say a) the match is on, or b) the match is cancelled. You will definitely get an email in the morning before 7 AM. This will be sent from the range, so will will know what the road condition is at that time. 

The match stages have only one paper target in total as of now. That could change if the rain is gone by match time. There are also lots of longer than normal birdshot targets (both clay and steel) and lots of long rifle shots (out to 400 yards).

This post may or may not be updated in the morning, so if you aren’t registered in Practiscore by 9 PM this evening, you may not get the morning update.

Dawson PrecisionJanuary seems to be the month when the shooter’s resilience to cold is tested. A year ago, the weather was a crisp 22 degrees when the setup staff arrived. Today it was WAY warmer at a balmy 24. Interestingly, we had exactly the same number of shooters today as one year ago. Both matches had great pre-registration, but both suffered from cold-itis. Once again, the January match had 23 shooters, down from 38 at peak registration. Last night, a wise man predicted a 40% bailout rate. I thought that would be excessive. As it turns out, he was right on the money.

In any event, the match went on with 6 quick, but still challenging stages, where only two stages took more than 10 seconds for the fastest shooter, and those were in the mid-11s. With just 108 rounds spread out over the 6 stages and only 3 squads, things moved along as a blistering pace. The first squad was done in just a bit more than 2 hours, with the second squad about 5 minutes behind. Shooting was done by 11:30 or so and the range deserted by Noon.

The top spot on the Poplarville podium saw a new face today. Congratulations to  Read more…

After a week of extremely low (for us) temperature all over South Mississippi, Sunday saw a return to moderation. Although the breeze kept the felt temperature a bit cool, it was actually 60 degrees when the match ended. That sure beats highs of the 30’s earlier in the week.

The much improved weather convinced 18 folks that today would be a good day to get back outside and have fun in the woods of Poplarville. With 4 deceptively challenging stages, plenty of shooters found ways to affect their scores negatively. Only four shooters shot the match clean.

It was a close match today. Coming out on top was  Read more…
