Texas Carbine is the newest 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.
In preparation for our Pirates of Texas Carbine Championship on the 15th, Texas Carbine will be having a "range cleanup day" this Saturday, February 7th at Starry. We plan to be at the range about 9am and pick up any trash in the bays, empty the trash cans, mow and trim the areas that need it, and get the Starry pavilion ready for the match.
So, if any of our local shooters would like to lend a hand, it would be greatly appreciated. Be sure and bring a pair of work gloves, bug spray and if you can, your trimmer (aka weedeater,) pruning shears, chain saws, rakes, brooms, etc., and that too will be very much appreciated.
Then the next day, Sunday the 8th, we will have a "target painting" day where we will paint all the match targets and organize them in bags for both Saturday shooters, and two sets for Sunday shooters. As of this writing, we're not sure if we will do this at the range or at Casa Nightmare, but if you're interested in giving us a hand, email us at:
01FEB - Holy smoke it was a nice day! I think we all got a little early sunburn, too. Nonetheless, it was definitely a wonderful day for shooting and speaking of which..
We had 38 people bring 44 guns to the match today and considering it was Super Bowl Sunday, we think that's doing mighty good.
The testing of our Pirates pseudo stages went very well also with lots of good comments on HAL9000's stage. We also learned that painting the plate racks black doesn't go well with the afternoon sun and a dirt berm background so we'll probably go back to white on those. However, everyone seemed to like the orange and black combo on all the other steel so we think we'll stick with that for those.
A really big thanks to those individuals who found the time to join us for set up on Saturday. With one entirely new stage and a few others that were quite involved to set up, we sure needed the help and we appreciate the volunteers who gave us a hand.
Also a big thanks to those who came early today to help us with final prep and of course, a big, big thanks to the large number of shooters who hung around to help us tear down the stages and stow the props.
OK, just two weeks until our Pirates match and we only have a handful of slots left so if you think you'd like to join us, definitely go to the match website, Piratesoftexasmatch.com, and download the application. Then, fill it out but before you mail it, call HAL9000 at 774-7317 so you can give him your name, division, etc., which will allow him to get you in the database quicker for meal calculations and label printing. Then, run don't walk, to the Post Office and get your app and check in the mail VERY soon.
We hope you all enjoyed the match today and, we hope to see a whole lot of you at Pirates in two weeks. I (Nightmare) think it may be our best Pirates match to date and that's saying something.

We're going to leave this shot of Jen and Spider up for awhile because it's such a great photo and we miss our good buddy every day.
