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! It’s that time-time again – already!  The clocks go BACK (3am becomes 2am) in the overnight of Saturday-Sunday, November 4-5.  Match times go FORWARD: registration/orientation from 9am-10am, shooting starts at 10am.  We keep this schedule until the clocks change (again). Our […]

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’. Speaking of range-daughters: time flies, they ‘grow up’, too soon they’re getting married.  Congrats to The Real Range Daughter, Holly -and- one of our first Range-Daughters Breonna: both are getting married in October. Special thanks to Sean S. and Dustin T. for getting some match videos out in the […]

July 29 2017 BUG Match Results and Notes


It was a dark and stormy night errrr, morning. We cannot give enough thanks to Amp (Match Director), Kevin, Craig and Chase, Brian, Duane, Ash, and the others for setting up this match “in between the raindrops.”  Or, while getting rained on – a lot.  Then we have to thank them again for waiting it out, the late start, and working in the steamy-heat to make this match a great success.  Thank you – of course – to 47 of you […]

July 8 2017 Match Results


Thanks everyone for dealing with the (hot hot hot) heat today and making the match a fun and safe success.  We have to give “a little extra” noise to the Match Director Amp and all of the stage designers and Safety Officers who gave “a lot extra” to get the match set up with the quick-but-fun-and-challenging stages; and, for ‘working’ all day. A thank you goes out to Candy Sugarman and her Gun Powder Gals for joining us today.  More […]

Thanks to everyone for coming out today. It was a great match. We’ve got a few ‘items’ today so we’re going to get busy on it.  Thank You, again. Jeff Wms – how are you and that leg? If someone reading this knows him let him know he’s on our minds and we’re hoping for the best for him (or you, if Jeff is reading it).  For you ‘not in the know’ – he suffered a twist or impact or […]
