November 11 2017 Really Long Match Results and Notes Post

Our Thanks-giving month begins with thanks to 77 shooters in yesterday’s 2nd Saturday IDPA (on Veterans’ Day) match – many of them Veterans themselves.  Especially when Amp & the SOs set everything up while it was below freezing in the bays and we “went hot” at right around 40-degrees-F, what can we say: Thank You! And, an all caps version to our “old hands” (look up veteran), you warm our hearts so our cold hands can play this game… The […]

October 28 2017 IDPA Classifier as a Match Results

Thank You goes out to 19 shooters in our Annual IDPA Classifier as a Match.  Three earned “promotions” and quite a few got “that close.”  As usual we’ve got some notes and scheduling things.  Ready kids… here we go!

Oct 14 2017 Match Results and Notes

Thank you everyone for joining us (now yesterday, sorry, this is late again).  There is much to do here. So, without any further… We “welcome home” our favorite Karate Kid (Brad H). So glad you could join us! (picture lower) Tough Stuff.  “K” and “RZ” both couldn’t join us because of health things.  We miss you guys and are hoping, praying and loving “at” you and “with” you.  “K” – (we don’t know the words) – does “Inspirational Leader” make […]

Sept 30 2017 Match Results and Notes

As always a giant thank you to everyone who came out to shoot the Mega-BUG match with us.  The weather was absolutely beautiful. Congrats again to our Range Daughters on their marriages: Holly & Brett (9/23) and Bre & Devin (10/7). A hard reminder occurred at the match. No “physical injury” – but “hurt” none-the-less. EVERYONE: when you are finished shooting the clock has stopped.  You MUST wait for the [R]SO to issue each “unload and show clear” command.  WAIT.  No ‘racing’ to the […]

Dear Jon No. 1 – Improving Performance

Dear Jon: This series of ‘posts’ will be the home-school ‘classroom’ portion of what will lead to a feet-on-the-range ‘practical’ series of exercises condensed into a clinic format. You asked: “Can you do something, a class maybe, on improving performance?” Coincidentally, near the time of your asking the following video was published. Only one ‘note of critique’ before: age is a number, unless you make it something else.  13 of the top 20 “overall” at the last IDPA match here […]

What an amazing day at the range!  Thank you for spending it with us. Sorry for the ‘late’ (next day) post: web-dude had to get to the ’48th Annual Coharie Pow-Wow’.

Special thanks to Sean S. and Dustin T. for getting some match videos out in the […]
