Ladies and Gents,

We will be holding our annual classifier match in January. All shooters must complete a classifier once every twelve months or have successfully completed a Sanctioned match within the previous twelve months. Our Battle on the Bayou back in March does not count!!

More info will be passed along after our match this weekend.

We will be performing an equipment check at the classifier match. It will take approximately 30 seconds per shooter and will cover the basics of what is commonly expected to be checked at a Sanctioned match.

This is also where we'll be able to ensure that you are in the appropriate division.

See you this Sunday!!

If anyone is interested, I have 12 lbs or 38spl brass I do not need. I would like to trade it for some 45acp brass. ...
