Given the latest changes in the Corona virus county rules, It does not appear appropriate to hold an indoor meeting. The best approach is to postpone the meeting until Sunday, January 3, 2021.
The meeting will be held at 11:00 am outdoors next to the old club house. This will give everyone ample space to social distance. We are hopeful that by starting in the morning the weather will cooperate. We will be able to space people out and handle the election in a safer manner, which will allow all members to attend without limiting the number of people who can attend. These are difficult times which require adjustments
I realize this is short notice, I was hopeful that we would be able to continue as normal that was not to be.
Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to seeing you in January.
The October MSI Revolver Match saw twelve shooters for the main match, including several first-time participants and our first lady shooter, Beth Sanders. This month’s match included one stage with smaller, more challenging targets and the increased level of difficulty was reflected in the scores. Missed target penalties add up quickly. Only one shooter made it through the course with no misses, new-comer Beth Sanders. Had it not been for a series of ammo glitches, she would have scored very well.
We had eight shooters for the half-match (3 Stages) following the main match, including another first time, lady shooter, Gwen Maciel. Our next match will be on November 21st. Hope to see you all there.
on Sunday, Nov 8th, come on out for some fun and food at our 5th Annual Veterans Day Funshoot. The entry fee is $20 and includes lunch – be sure to bring lots of ammo so that you can participate in all the games! MSI is helping VFW Aux 2922 raise money to sponsor wreaths through Wreaths Across America, these will be placed at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery on Dec 19th!

MSI held it’s second Double Action Revolver Match on September 19th with 13 shooters completing the the initial six stage course. One shooter had do drop out due to equipment problems. Seven shooters participated in a second relay that consisted of three stages, several of them opting to use a different firearm from the first relay.
Many shooters who’s first experience with action shooting was the August match, showed significant improvement.
