Just started shooting pistols about a year ago. I went to a 1500 ppc match in Homer, La. at the David Wade Correctional facility and did poorly, but am I in love with THE MATCH. I shoot a Les Baer Premier II in .45. Probably not the best caliber, but an accurate pistol. I would like to go th Pearl and shoot. I understand the next match is on March 22, 2005. Does anyone have any information on the match? I'm basically at the 1380 level, and wondering if there is a cutoff scorewise for being allowed to participate. I hope not. If I get off work after dark, I go to our local range, turn the car lights on the target, and shoot in the dark. That's addiction. RandyWelcome to the sport of PPC. I live in NJ and usual posting during the day 8am-4pm. I am also disappointed that noone uses this sight. If you have questions make a post or just to chat about things also.
If you are a Doctor and work at the Sheriff's Office, I met you at the Wade match. I was the Probation and Parole Officer. There are no requirements to shoot except you have to join the Mississippi Police Marksman Association. The cost of the match is $10 and $5 to join the association. Matches start at 9 am. Matches are held at the Mississippi Law Enforcemant Training Academy in Pearl, MS. Call me at the Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office and I'll get you directions (318) 435-4505.
IT IS AMAZING HOW MUCH FUN IT IS TO SHOOT A GOOD GUN! I'M NOT A HIGH-MASTER AND MAYBE SHOULDN'T GIVE ADVICE BUT MY NECK HOLD AT 50 IS JUST AS YOU DESCRIBED. I ALSO USE A NECK HOLD AT 25. BOTH SEEM TO BE HELPFUL TO ME.
I FOUND THAT GUY'S # IN BATON ROUGE WHO HAS THE 5" PPC 9 FOR SALE. THE GUN AND 10 MAGS FOR $1000. IT'S A PRETTY SWEET DEAL, I JUST DON'T HAVE AN EXTRA "GRAND" LAYING AROUND. SEE YOU ON THE 21ST.
