February 2020 Poplarville pistol match results

February 9, 2020 Leave a comment

Dawson PrecisionAfter a difficult few months of crappy weather for the South Mississippi matches, we managed to get one in at Poplarville today. The turnout was a bit sparse, and it was reported that at least one pre-registered shooter had come down with the Corona virus (not the Chinese one…). However, there were 26 shooters who got to enjoy some really fun stages today. When people want to shoot your stages again after the match just to see what the best way to do something is, then you have done well. This happened with two of them today.

The five stages didn’t offer particularly huge round counts, but they presented some interesting shooting problems to solve. The exercise known as Formal Portrait really pushed the shooter to demonstrate the fundamentals that are so important to this sport. Some did and some stumbled. The all-steel stage known as Wait For It was probably the one where you really had to shoot it both ways to see which was better. As we all know, consistency beats a smokin’ hot run followed by a spectacular melt-down any day. It came down to being best in speed and accuracy, as Read more…

What more could you have asked for today? Great weather (really great), great stages (by popular vote), great competitors (just ask ’em), and most of all, a great time being with your friends in the great outdoors. Yep, it was great.

Twenty shooters came to Poplarville today to test themselves and they responded. Not everyone could be a winner today, but I think everyone came away with the feeling that watching the Super Bowl later on tonight would only be a letdown, compared to what they took home from today’s match.

Of course, someone always wins, and today, it was that someone we have come to 1) fear as a competitor, 2) respect as a shooter, and 3) appreciate as a friend. Once again, the match belongs to Read more…

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…
