We will run Thursday evening USPSA matches starting May 26, through end of July, on selected Thursdays. These matches are suitable for anyone that had training in how to draw from open carry, or has a pistol caliber carbine. USPSA membership not required. Limited to 18 shooters. Matches start at 6, you can show up as late as 7. 4-5 stages, 100-ish rounds per match, $25 entry fee. Pre-registration is required. Pay match fee in cash on event day. Stages remain set up after the match for open practice until it gets dark. Highly recommended for DPS-1/2/3 graduates that have never shot competition.

SONG OF THE MONTH
I’ve appeared on the “Free Music Friday” segment of College Station’s KBTX TV several times over the past few years. Recently I was able to get high quality copies of those performances. Lyle Lovett got his start playing at the Mr. Gatti’s pizza place on Texas Avenue (and other venues) in Aggieland, so I cover several of his songs in my solo act. “She’s No Lady” was the first song of his I ever heard, and I think it’s one of his best.
