Texas Carbine is a new shooting club in Corpus Christi and we offer monthly Tactical Carbine and Pistol matches as well as regular 3GN style Shotgun and MultiGun matches at the Starry range. Our goals are to provide a safe and challenging shooting experience and do our best to ensure that everyone has a good time.
12MAY - Next Sunday's match will mark Texas Carbine's two-year anniversary. Hard to believe that much time has passed but for sure we've come a long way since that first match.
Anyway, we wanted to do something for our loyal shooters to celebrate the anniversary and for starters, we're just going to cover our range costs so everyone will get to shoot for a mere ten bucks! To add to that, Maytag wants to use our way cool electric mover on one of the stages and to help get you readers excited, here's a little "mover promo" video I put together (thanks to Shane B's video from the Pirates match..hope you don't mind me using a clip, Shane!)
Let's hope we have good weather and that many of you can make it next Sunday. Thankfully, our match wasn't TODAY with all this rain.
Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers..
05MAY - Well, what a great day for blasting five original, all-steel courses of fire, with one surprise stage that 99 percent of the folks enjoyed. Thirty-one guns came out to shoot with us today and all seemed to have a really good time.
Welcome to our three new shooters: Koulton Mansilla, Michael Bartek, and Greg Laves. Thanks for joining us and for your interest in Texas Carbine. It was also great to see Betsy P. again.
The new steel worked great, look for more all-steel matches in the future.
Got to hand it to Maytag for his surprise stage. Each shooter went into the stage not knowing where any of the targets were located, with a few sneaky ones thrown in for good measure to make it more interesting. It’s a good bet we’ll see more surprise stages in the future.
Scores were up by 5pm which is pretty good after a long social gathering lunch at Sparrow’s Landing.
Thanks to everyone who joined us today. We realize ammo is tight and having thirty-one guns at the match today tells us you all really want to shoot and, it confirms for us that we’re doing the right things.
Hope to see you all at the carbine match on the 19th.
