    MPSA USPSA Match 5/19/2018

    Sorry for the late notice.

    That's right we're shooting the same weekend as the Mississippi Classic. This match is for all of us that are to broke, lazy, slow on the keyboard, procrastinators or just didn't care. Match fee for everyone this weekend is $10, juniors shoot for free.

    MPSA will be having a USPSA match Saturday, May 19th, at the Vinegar Bend range. We will be shooting 6 stages including one classifier. If you are going to shoot the match, please register ahead of time using the following link.

    Match Start Time:

    It is a must to get to the range on time so that we can get setup and start on time. Everyone should be signed in by 9:15am so that I can get the squadding done and we can have a shooters meeting at 9:20am – 9:25am. Stages should be setup and ready by 9:20 as well. If we all do our part to get to the range a bit earlier then we can get done shooting at a decent time.

    Who can come: EVERYONE

    Match Fees: $10 for MPSA members, $20 for Guest and $5 for Juniors. If this is your first match as a competitive shooter your match is FREE.

    What do I need to shoot an USPSA match? Eye and Ear Protection (safety glasses and ear muffs or ear plugs) Any brand of Handgun with a caliber larger than .38/9mm. USPSA divisions encompass 9mm, .38 cal, .40 cal and .45 cal. You will need a holster and at least 2 magazines and pouches. Our matches normally consist of 5 stages with 25 to 30 rounds each so having additional magazines is a plus. Bring at least 150 rounds of ammo. Sometimes the stages require more and sometimes less. Pasting, Setting Steel and Scoring:

    If you are not the shooter on deck or reloading after you shoot then you should be helping to set steel and paste targets. This really makes a difference in how long the match takes to complete.

    New Shooters: If you are planning to bring a new shooter please make sure to get them to the range early so that they can go through the new shooter orientation.

    See you at the range

    Also, it looks like it's going to be a small turnout on Saturday, so anyone who can get there early to help setup will be greatly appreciated.

    How is the road to the range? As I remember it, a car would have a challenge getting through the mud holes.

    There is still one hole, but it was nearly bone dry when I went up there a week and a half ago. I'm not sure how much it has rained up there this week, so I don't know the current condition.

    If I shoot a single stack 1911 major power factor, can I shoot limited 10?

    Yep. You can load to 10 and shoot Limited 10, or use regular magazines and load to 8 in Single Stack.
