Mattaponi Sundowners: match results

Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well, what a great day for shooting!!  Was glad to see all of y’all there and hope you had a good time. Thanks for all of the help setting up and tearing down.  We must have had a challenging match, even the author (Flatboat) got a “P”.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as overall match winner.  Congrats to our only CAD shooter, Will Sonnet.

Sorry for the “poop” smell, it did get over powering, but we had no control over the farmers.

I know you’ve heard of Christmas in July but have you heard of SNOW in August?  Please look at the picture attached.  Yes, that’s Cockroach picking up brass!

Pungo and Cavalier will be shooting next weekend.  For those of us going to the Virginia State match; travel safe and we will see you there.

Mattaponi Sundowners stages for Saturday

Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Attached are the stages for Saturday’s Mattaponi Sundowners match.  The stages are written by Flatboat Bob.  The gates will open at 0800, safety meeting at 0930 and shooting starts at 1000. 

We will have fans and tents as needed.  The weather is looking good so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they don’t lie again.  We know the stages will be fun and exciting and with good weather we surely hope to see ya there.  This is the next to last match before Virginia State match with Peppermill shooting on Sunday being the final match before then.

See y’all Saturday.

Howdy All,

THIS IS A CHANGE: the match for tomorrow is CANCELLED.

We are sorry to do this but the weather forecast isn’t good; 60% rain at 0900 and by 2 the forecast is 80%.

We hope to see y’all next Saturday.

West Point Double Action Match Aug 9, 2018

The West Point Gun Club will be having their monthly Double Action match this Thursday, Aug 9th. The gates open at 8:00 AM, setup starts at 8:30 AM, sign up starts at 8:30 AM and shooting starts at 10:00 AM. In addition to our 6 stage Double Action match, we will be having the following:

    – 20 round J-Frame (5 shot, short barrel) stage
    – 28 round 1911 stage using Wild Bunch Rules (smaller frame carry 1911’s are OK to use)
    – We will also be shooting a 29 round stage (24 with normal DA Firearm then 5 rounds with a J-Frame) this will be one of the 6 DA stages.

Also if there is time after the normal stages have been completed we may have another 1911 stage so you may want to bring extra ammo for the 1911.

As normal all stages are shot using adult caliber firearms (center fire) and no lasers, red dot or other optics are allowed.

We had a great day of shooting albeit a little muggy.  There was the occasional breeze that made it tolerable.  The competion was hot and heavy too.  Congrats to Nutmegger and Beartooth for winning their respective classes (Open and Cowboy); they also came in last in those categories.  Brian Hood took top honors for the Limited Class.  Congrats!

Thank you, Kidd for keeping score.

The next match will be on WED, 05 SEP.  See you all then!

Looks like the forecast is for chance of showers in the morning with afternoon thunderstorms.  Sounds like the forecast for today.  So I’m going to take a chance and say, “lets shoot” for tomorrow.  We’ll set up the tents and hope for the best.  See you all in the morning.
