Thanks to all who came out today.

Father’s Day Mattaponi Sundowners

Howdy All,

There were some interesting stages but fun to shoot.  It was warm today and you have never known it but we had trouble keeping the tents grounded from the wind. There was no need for fans, Mother Nature took care of that and I for one was very glad she did.  Thanks to One Eyed Jane, who helped us all out by having us start with stages 3-6.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall Match winner and to Kuba Kid as the ONLY CAD.

We missed many of our regular shooters but we hope that you all were out making some nice memories with your Dad’s or with your kids, if you’re really lucky you got to do both.

Smoke on The Mattaponi will be next Saturday.  It’s not too late to sign up, just has to be in an established category.  Go to the website of for the application.  Hope to see y’all next Saturday.

West Point Gun Club Double Match June 13th 2019

The West Point Gun Club will be having their monthly Double Action match this Thursday, June 13th. The gates open at 8:30 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
    – 24 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.

Mattaponi Sundowners Sunday match

Howdy all Cowboys and Cowgirls,

The Mattaponi Sundowners will be holding their Sunday match, June 16.  This will be Father’s Day but the match will go as planned.  The gates will open at 1030, safety meeting at 1200 and shooting starts at 1230.

Looks to be a great match written by Cody Maverick but have plenty of shotgun shells ready.

We hope to see all of y’all there.  The weather is looking like high 80’s but no rain.  If you can’t be there for family obligations we understand and hope that you have a Happy Father’s Day!
