Another shooting season has come to a close with the last match of the year shot on October 19th, the steel match. The weather was perfect for shooting and the match drew 34 shooters. The turnouts for these later matches are always a bit lower due to hunting seasons, school commitments and other activites going on. This year had some of the highest numbers of competitors we have seen in recent years which speaks well for the health of the sport. Start working on stages for next year and get them submitted early. Have a good fall and winter, we will see you all next season!
This year's single stack match was well attended on a great day at the range. From all reports the stages were fun and challenging. That darn Texas Star caused some frustration on "Barrels of Fun" but that is the fun of shooting, right? Think of it as good practice on your reloads ;-). Next month will be a USPSA Special Classifier. See you then.
Another great turnout for the MT Glock Match! This seems to be the new normal, in excess of 70 shooters which is great. It was a perfect weather day and hopefully you all had a good time if not a good match. Please note one schedule change on the Match Dates page: the steel match that was scheduled for August 24 has been re-scheduled for October 19. The next event is the annual GSSF match which is for Glock pistols only, to be held June 28-29. This is always a popular match for beginners as well as experienced shooters so don't miss it. See you on the range.
Paul and Gary have put together an article that covers the basics of getting started in practical shooting with the BSPSC. I have put a link in the "For More Information" module in the left hand column of the website. This article will help new shooters understand what equipment is required and how to get involved with the club. Each year we try to reach out to as many new shooters as possible, and this is another way that we can answer some of the common questions that arise.
