Our next IDPA match is scheduled for this Sunday.  Since the outer gate is still under construction, please remove the "Road Closed" sign to go in, then put it back before driving in to the range.

Arrive at 7:00 to help with set up, and between 8:15 and 8:45 for signup.  Shooters meeting will be at 9:00 with first shots shortly thereafter.

You may want to wear boots, as range conditions are a little rough and slightly damp. Print out your Membership Form and we will accept it on match day.  Unpaid members will pay 25.00 match fee, as always.

Stage designers are Mark Barr, Charlie, Craig Wilder, & Tony Reis

Important!!  There will be a stage requiring each shooter to have a paper grocery bag. Check it out!  Please bring one or two to the match.  I will have a few extras, for those who forget theirs...

As always, check here after 6:00 pm on Saturday, to verify the match is a GO.

I'd also like to thank MARK BARR for his work as Match Director!

Stage #2 is built... and you

Stage #2 is built... and you wrong-sided shooters will probably like it. :-p . As Brian says, ya prob oughta wear boots as the frost thaws quick and it gets a little muddy. Not deep, but a little gooey on top of sand.

Leave it to Tony Reis to make

Leave it to Tony Reis to make the "Bag over the head" stage his very own.  I finally got such a stage approved, with the shooter standing 8 feet from a target with a paper bag placed over the head, turning off a light switch and shooting 6 shots to slide lock.

I think everyone enjoyed it, but none more than Tony.  Here is the photographic proof.  Way to go Tony! (photo: Phill Osbourn)

Mark,   I think we all had a

Mark,

 

I think we all had a fun day. It was great to see all the new and new young shoots. I already put the word in for good weather, just like yesterday for the next match.

Are we really going to be shooting out of a rowboat at the next match?

  Our January match is in the

 

Our January match is in the books.  Congrats to Mark Barr for his match win! yes

 

While the changes to the range have presented some challenges, we made the best of it and had a great match.  Long, but great!  I'd like to thank everyone and I mean everyone for the work they did to keep the match moving.  The SO's were on top of having their shooters ready and everyone was out, taping and brassing!  Thank you!

We also had a few new shooters, including a couple junior shooters.  I had the pleasure of running them both through stage 1 (Mark's Bag Stage) and I was very impressed by their safe gun handling!!   Always great to see more young people getting involved in our sport!

We are a couple months away from a new center berm, however a few Board Members have been working on ideas to speed things up some.  We will have a way to shoot 2 shooter/stages at the same time, we will also temporarily make some limits to stage designs.  We expect to be done earlier next month and still have a fun and challenging match!

 

Thanks again to everyone!

Sorry everyone!  I was the one sitting on the scores because I didn't get them out of the scoring computer and into an internet-connected computer until today.  Ty posted them like mere minutes after I finally emailed them!

Wes,  Pull a stunt like that

Wes,  Pull a stunt like that again and we may cut your pay in half!

But seriously, thanks for all your work Sunday. Tabulating results is a tedious job. You did it well.  In fact, you have my expressed permission to tabulate any time you like!  wink

Wow!! I looked at the scores

Wow!! I looked at the scores and I see one person that stood out to me more than anyone. Marie, absolutely spanked her husband on stage one. Way to go Marie. I see you were in ESP, new gun or error.

Inquiring minds want to know. Were you shooting your usual real mans bullet the .45ACP or were you shooting Tim's powder puffs loads?

If Marie keeps this up, Tim's times will start to look like mine did the previous weekend against my wife. crying

Well, my lovely wife has

Well, my lovely wife has decided that she can get better second shot time by shooting a 9 mm rather than a 45. So we had a Springer trigger job done on the XD and the difference is clear. She shot ESP Unclassified with factory ammo and did indeed spank me.  And that is why I love her. Now to invest in the 9 mm stuff for my 550.......

Fellow IDPA friends, We may

Fellow IDPA friends,

We may be overdue for a wheelchair stage. You know each one of us has the potential to end up in a wheelchair at any time. It could be from a car accident, a slip and fall at the grocery store, or something mild as a sprain from bowling. Are you prepared to defend yourself while you confined to a wheelchair? Are you simply going to leave your gun at home because you have a boo boo on your leg and cant walk? Really? Are you prepared to fend off an attacker with your bare hands while sitting in a wheelchair? Is it your plan to just spit on an assailant? Do you expect to rise to this occasion? Are you some sort of super human? I say not!

Since we all know you will never rise to the occasion, you will only fall back on your training NOW is the time for wheelchair IDPA scenarios. The life you save may one day be your own.

What do you say Craig? Time for some payback from all those duck and cover, get down, get up, proned out 100 degree summer stages? cheeky

Sure, that sounds like a good idea for a stage. I've never shot a wheelchair stage before.

Great idea Ty. I have just

Great idea Ty. I have just the guy to show use how if I can talk him into it. His name is Mark M. and I have shot cowboy action with him many times. He is a great shooter and with a great sense of humor. He also has a FFL.  and charges a modest price for transfers.  Mark has to have a wheel chair to get around. He would be a real asset to the club.   Jack R.
