May 2020 USPSA pistol match cancelled

The May 10, 2020 USPSA pistol match in Poplarville has been cancelled. The current directive from the Governor is no social or non-essential gatherings of move than 20 people are allowed. The numbers in Mississippi are headed in the wrong way as they are in Louisiana.  So, we’ll try again next month…

Dawson PrecisionToday, everything worked out. The weather cooperated, the range was in good shape, and the stages were fantastic! The 32 shooters who lost an hour to Daylight Saving Time last night gained that and more in a super-fun match. The match pace was good, and even though we started 30 minutes later than normal, due to the change in time, we still finished in less than 3 hours. There wasn’t too much to load back in the truck so we were on the way well before 1 PM.

There were several high hit factor stages up for grabs because sometimes, it’s

just fun to go fast and hose. And hosing we did. Today the title of King Hoser went to Read more…

The only thing wrong with today was the low turnout. The 12 folks who did shoot had a great time and the stages were challenging, but fun. The weather cooperated and it was shirt-sleeve weather most of the day, although it was in the 30’s when I arrived this morning.

One of the more fun aspects today was the return of the mover. We probably haven’t shot that in 5 or 6 years. Think of a zipline with a large plywood board on it that carries a target (or two, sometimes) that moves at terrifying speeds. Most people just shot at it as much as they could and hoped for the best. But it was different and it was fun. Maybe one of the shooters will post their video online…

We knew going in, there would be a new winner today with both Kevin and Morgan at a new 3-gun match in Texas. With almost everyone having a chance, the competition was fierce. But somebody always wins, and today that was Read more…

February 2020 Poplarville pistol match results

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…
