The first Tarheel USPSA match took place yesterday at Woody’s Hunt and Rifle Club in New Hill, NC and I went to check it out. I’ve been talking with the match director for the past couple months during the lead up to this match getting started, and I’ve been really excited about it.
This match uses pre-registration through the Tarheel3gun.com website, and this is the first match that I’ve ever shot that also has the shooter pre-pay online during registration. It worked well, and they ended up having something like 85 shooters for their first USPSA match, which is amazing.
Stages were really good. Challenging, but good, and really made you aware of your front sight. We had a couple shooters on my squad that got hung up on different spots trying to shoot a piece of steel, and actually ran out of ammo and couldn’t finish the stage. Low ports, small steel, far steel, and some partials all made for a fantastic match, especially since it was the first one. I’ll be back next month.
