January 2020 Poplarville USPSA Pistol match **CANCELLED**

The monthly USPSA Pistol match scheduled for Sunday, January 12, 2020 has been cancelled due to the rain on Saturday. Ironically, the entire road at the range was fixed just this week, but now vulnerable to significant damage if we were to drive on it while wet tomorrow morning. Hopefully, the hunters will stay off it as well and let it dry in its newly, flattened state.

‘Round about Friday, it wasn’t looking good for the match. With two solid days of rain, my phone was buzzing with shooters wanting to know if we were going to be able to shoot. I was skeptical about the road being usable, but it turned out to be as *good* as it has been for the past few months. I guess the severe ruts are acting as channels to drain away the water. It only took a 2WD vehicle to get in although a truck made it a bit easier. Anyway, we got to shoot.

The weather was great, after it finally warmed up. When I got to the range to put up the targets, it was a crisp 32 degrees. Thankfully, by 9 it was warm enough for short sleeves. The rest of the day was perfect with clear skies, mild temps and a slight breeze. Not too bad for early January.

We had a respectable 18 shooters with us today, and it made for decent size squads. There were enough folks to get things reset but not so big as to be slow. There was some discussion in my squad about creating a new division called “Leonhardt.” The only requirement to shoot that division is your last name. If you aren’t a Leonhardt, you have to shoot in the “Participation Trophy” division. It will come as no surprise that your match winner, regardless of division, was Read more…

December 2019 Poplarville pistol match results

Dawson PrecisionIt was yet another great weather day in Poplarville, but the action was as hot as Summer. There were six challenging stages that pushed the 33 shooters for much of the morning. The match was paced perfectly as the three squads moved at their own pace with no one waiting on the squad in front of them.

This was the last match of the year for us and it seemed to be well received. I got several compliments on the stages. The Open people were treated to an unusual day of reloading where every single stage required a reload for one reason or another. We’re not used to that but it’s always good to get the live practice-under-pressure in.

The stages seemed to favor one person today, and he took advantage of it. The overall winner was Read more…

Because the first Sunday in December actually is at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, we are cancelling the match. Neither Wayne nor myself will be able to set up or be there on match day, so we will see you next year!

Dawson PrecisionThe weather could not have been more perfect today if we had pre-ordered it. This meant there were no excuses for not having a good time. We saw 30 shooters make the trip and enjoy 6 stages that made you shoot, move, aim and just do all those core USPSA skills that we do so well! The road is still in bad shape but we should have that fixed before next month.

With 6 stages and 3 squads, I don’t think anyone had to wait on a stage. My group didn’t and it was pretty nice. The stages seemed well balanced with a couple of fairly low round count ones with challenging shooting and manipulations in the mix. The field courses were also challenging without being mean, and also required the core skill set to be used.

There were some changes in the air with the locals today, and they were all for the good. Jason Welch has found a new division in Limited after success in Production and PCC. The Henn Brothers (actually father and son) returned from a long shooting hiatus while they opened their wonderful new fish store in Biloxi (https://www.facebook.com/justfishbiloxi/) this summer. For the second or third month in a row, George Hemstad brought out some brand new shooters, and that deserves a huge thank you! Things are going well. So, let’s see who won today.

Marking his triumphant return to Poplarville with an overall and Open division win is Read more…
