August 2019 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson Precision For once, the weather not only cooperated but was a big help. After a week of blistering heat and humidity, we dodged two big weather bullets for the match today. This should have been the eighth match of the year, but it was actually just the fourth, and we really needed to shoot.  Although rain wasn’t really in the forecast for today, we managed to miss some serious storms just to the south of the range. We also caught a break with the overcast skies pretty much all morning. It was humid, but the clouds made it much more bearable. I can tell you from personal experience this week setting up that without the clouds, we wouldn’t have wanted to be there.

The match today could be characterized in two words. “New shooters”. We had at least 8 brand new to USPSA shooters and at least a handful more new to us and pretty new to USPSA. And it was great! A huge round of thanks goes to Peter and George for bringing out most of them and helping get them acquainted with the rules. In my squad, everyone got through their first match and seemed to have fun, as well. We all had a first match in our past and sometimes its hard to remember just how scary it was. Thank you to everybody who helped with the new shooters today. I know they appreciated it.

OK, enough of the chit-chat. Let’s see who won. It really wasn’t that close when the dust settled. At the top was Read more…

June 2019 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionWe FINALLY managed to shoot a match at Poplarvillle, after being rained out since February. And, it took a rescheduled match to make this one happen. It was Father’s Day and really hot, so the turnout was down from the normal crowd, but those who did show up got some nice, simple stages (wink, wink).

We were just happy to be back after being gone for so long, but the range is showing the wear from the weather this spring. The road is in pretty bad shape, although the actual shooting bays aren’t too much worse than they were in February. We will need to get a dozer to fix the road, because the ruts from this spring have turned into permanent features. Oh, well…

Although the field was small, it made for a quick day. We were done shooting by 11:30 and out the gate by Noon. We had just 4 stages, including one classifier, but by the end, no one was complaining. You see, it was really hot and humid and it took a toll. I, for one, was done after 4 stages. I think others were too. The excuse was to get home to celebrate Father’s Day, and I’m sticking to that line.

When the dust settled, there was a familiar face at the top. Your overall winner was Read more…
