AndyMessina is bringing his daughter to shoot with us for the first time. She needs a belt. Size 32-34 if anyone has one she can use. ...

Happy New Year! ...

2018 Battle at the Boondocks was wet and cold and that might be an understatement but our guys and girls made it through. Four awards and two guns are coming home to Louisiana. Kris Walley got 1st place CDP MM, Nick Geeck got 1st SSP MM (and received a bump to SS), Cory Johnson got 3rd place SSP MM, and Tyler Levins, in his first sanctioned match, got 3rd SSP NV. Great job guys!! Phillip Ellis and Cory Johnson are bringing home some nice guns off the price table. It was a good day for SLIDPA. We had a lot of people that showed up and shot their first sanctioned match even though the weather was less than desirable. Congrats y’all, if y’all can make it through this then your next one will be a breeze! Over all, a good time was had by all. Time to get ready for Battle on the Bayou!! ...
