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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

March 11 2017 Match Results


We have a great deal to be thankful for today – ahead of predicted nasty weather.  As always, first, thank you to 84 shooters (many of you new to competition) for spending your day with us.  Thanks, as always tied for first to the SOs, Amp – Match Director, and score-keepers for all the hard work. A lot of new went into today’s match: new score-sheets, new bay, newly rebuilt berms/backstops/side-stops, new signs, new safety markers and ropes… Thanks to Chris K. […]

We are extremely thankful for everyone who came out today and made our first “100+” shooter match (101 to be exact) a success. We are also thankful for the “record” weather for today’s “record” match.  Last year the February match had to be cancelled due to ice!   Thanks also – everyone – for helping Girl Scout Troop 56 (Dunn) get a lot closer to their cookie sales goals and for all of the contributions to Operation Cookie Drop. Reminder: The Gun […]
