February 2023 SDPS Match

David Rice, as our intrepid match director, designed a very challenging course of fire that kept us on our toes. Many thanks to all those who helped set up the stage and to David for putting all the thought and planning to make this happen. Next month’s match director is Kevin Ballment and April is Ryan Harrigan. Fred Mowrey announced the May Western Regional which he promised will be 17 stages with lots of shooting. Sign up now as the match will fill up quickly.

Randy Owen has been shooting SDPS for five years. He now shoots an HK semi auto as a MM in SSP, Randy recently retired after 28 years with the US Postal Service as a maintenance worker doing carpentry all over California for the USPS. Randy enjoys retirement with his wife, 2 children, 10 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren (whew!). Randy is good friends with Jim Norris, another SDPS shooter. They have been motorcycle enthusiasts for many years with Randy riding Harleys, of course.  Randy is another one of our military veterans who served 20+ years in the US Army including a three-year stint in Germany. He still remembers enough German that he could try it out on us during setup last Saturday.
