Does anyone know how the match is going to work Sat. ? How many rounds, stages? Are we shooting both at once?

It will actually just be a USPSA match. The steel combo idea was dropped due to this being the last match there before the Mississippi Classic in May. The plan is to shoot 5 stages, but when I talked to John earlier, he didn't have any picked out yet. If anyone has any ideas or something they want to see, try and get it to him as soon as possible. As for round count, I'd hazard a guess of somewhere between 100-125 rounds like usual.

I want to say a big thank you to John for letting me shoot.

Thank you!!!!!


I showed up late due to working all night and being up all day before. I grabbed my score sheets and jumped right in and started shooting. Got some things that need work but every thing felt ok.

Had a good time thanks to all who made this a sat match. I look forward to shooting the classic in may.

Was good to meet and put faces with screen names.

What time did ya'll start shooting. Had all my stuff by the door and when I got up it was coming a flood in Florence. Looked at the weather channel and it didn't look like it'd quit soon.

What is do ya'll do on days like today? Ya'll shot but when? Just show up and wait out the rain?

XD, what do you do, show up on time, call a number or look on the site? Spent the night before loading mags and such but since this is my second shoot, didn't know what to do with the hard rain at 5:30 and the weather channel saying it wouldn't let up soon.
Any guidance would be appreciated, I'd don't want to miss another one and didn't want to call guys at that time.
thanks.

Well sid if in doubt show up. Sorry you weren't able to make it. I didn't get off work till 1030 so I called to make sure I could still get in and John graciously allowed me to shoot.

I don't know about how to get the word out maybe a thread on here? .

Sid, sorry you missed it. If it is an obvious rain out, John (or someone) will send out an email to the TeamMagnolia mailing list as soon as the call has been made, whether it is the night before or early on the morning of the match, so make sure you are on the mailing list and check your email as late as you can if the weather is questionable. (For those not on the mailing list, you can sign up at http://teammagnolia.com/mailman/listinfo/shooters_teammagnolia.com). If no email has gone out be 6:45 am on the morning of the match, you can assume that, as John put it, "at least one dumb soul is heading down to the range to try and put on some sort of a match."

I had watched the weather and saw what 'Neck mentioned above, i.e. that there would be rain for a few hours during the night. When I got up Saturday morning, www.weather.com showed rain until 7 or 8 on their hourly forecast and then nice weather after that, so I loaded the car and headed out. I have to admit when I was driving through heavy rain under a dark sky between Magee and Mendenhall, I began to wonder what in the heck I was doing, but I kept going anyway. When I got there I found that setup had been postponed a bit due to the rain but that the match would go on. Not sure what time we started shooting, but it was a little later than normal. I think that was why it was so easy for Xd357 to shoot getting there as late as he did, because he wasn't THAT far behind the rest of us.

Garett, it was good to meet you and Jonathan, good to see you again (sorry, it's apparently been a while...). Hope to see y'all both at a match again in the near future, and maybe we can squad together sometime.

Bryant, I found your buisness card you gave me a few years ago, i remembered emailing you about some brass or bullets or something. I had just gotten my XD Service model and shot in my first match.
Got really busy at work and i didnt have the time to shoot so i stockpiled stuff. Now i got a new job and i been blasting away.

My pleasure, anytime. I'm looking forward to the Classic as well. If the weather is good, it should be one of the best ever. There is a small chance I may have to miss it due to a trial in WV, but I am hopeful that won't be the case. [Ha, pun intended!] I haven't missed a Classic since I started shooting in 2000.

I will PM you with my new information, as I changed jobs myself in 2008 and the info you have may not be right anymore! LOL. I know how it is when life gets in the way; glad you came out again. I see you've been getting in to several different types of competition. I may have to hit you and the other rifle reloading experts on the forum up for some assistance at some point. I've loaded somewhere around 65-70K pistol rounds, but I've never reloaded a rifle round...

XD (or Garett as I'll start calling you) and Bryant, thanks for the info. I live about 10 miles from the range and it was coming down hard at 5:30-6:00 so I looked at the weather channel and it didn't look like it was going to give up soon. You guys are like us Nascar fans, just wait it out, it'll quit before dark.

From the tone John's email...I'm kinda glad I could not make it. Among other things, The "qualifier" was messed up...and a lot of folks had left before they discovered it to correct it...Those that were around were allowed a re-shoot after the stage was corrected

I might be in U class till I'm 60 :lol4:
