Howdy All,

Well today surprised us by getting so hot so quick.  We apologize for not being prepared and having fans out, we will try to do better next month.  Frontier Mick provided an interesting and fun match but I think he might have learned about movement stages in hot weather. Thanks Mick!  First one of many down.

Congrats to Major B S Walker for being appointment “Regulator”.  It was good seeing Ripsaw.  Thanks for nominating B. S. for Regulator.  It was really nice to have Flatboat Bob and Missouri Marshal there for the presentation since they are the only 2 Regulators from our area.  We are a little thin in that area.

We also have 2 observers there today that are interested in getting started in Cowboy Action. We hope to see them back soon.  Don’t know if y’all noticed a couple that came late and only stayed for a couple of stages.  We might be seeing them back next month.  They are our new friends from PA that have moved into the area.  We met them at the PA State Championship.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall match winner.  Congrats to the husband and wife duo for shooting CAD, One Eyed Jane and Prairie City Slim.  We also send them Congrats and well wishes for celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary last week.

Pepper Mill Gang will be shooting tomorrow.

Take care, stay out of the heat and be safe.

Mattaponi Sundowners match for Sunday

Uncategorized Comments Off on Mattaponi Sundowners match for Sunday

Howdy All,

We hate to do this but it looks like it’s going to be too dang hot to shoot Sunday. 

I don’t think it would be safe gun handling or safe for any of us with 99 degrees and humid.  We don’t have enough fans to fight that.

We hope to see y’all next Saturday.

Don’t forget to start getting your applications in for Virginia State Championship.  The application can be found on StarCityShootout.com.

Stay cool and hydrated.

We know that the weather isn’t looking great but with heat at near 99 and humidity, we will have tents and fans to help us through this heat.  We will have a relaxed dress code but no open toe shoes or ball caps though.

If our plans for the match change we will send out an announcement as soon as possible, so keep an eye out for an email from us as early as Friday and as late as Saturday afternoon.

Hope to see y’all there.

Father’s Day Mattaponi Sundowners

Uncategorized Comments Off on 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 westpointgunclub.com for the application.  Hope to see y’all next Saturday.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!

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.
