ALL MATCHES for BLACKWATER PRACTICAL SHOOTERS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Sorry to keep everyone waiting on our shooting season. After the wait, the news is NOT good. Blackwater Practical Shooters have been asked that we discontinue future matches at Academi due to the fact they can’t continue to operate with us in the current conditions. They are looking out for the future of their company and employees. I’m not going to mention any dollar figures that could mislead anyone to bad rumors, decisions or remarks about Academi or Blackwater Practical Shooters.
We had a good long run being able to shoot at a top notch facility since as far back as 2001. We are at a point that was coming one day it was just sooner rather than later. I do want you to thank their company for the use of their facility all these years and I hope that you consider supporting any of the shooting sports that they decide to hold in the future at Academi.
As for BPS and our future, we will still support matches at the other clubs out there. We are still going to make the other matches it’s just that we are now short a match in that line up so we have to look for a replacement to fill the gap. We have not gone away just yet either. We are still looking to put our matches out there where there might be an opening. We are actively seeking other shooting ranges that might want to consider supporting our USPSA/Multi gun/Steel Challenge matches. There are a few offers but we are still working on it at the moment. Keep hoping for us that’s for sure! As we keep looking for a future place to hold our matches, I do hope you shooters keep in mind that there are other shooting clubs and matches out there. We will help find that information and put it out there on our web and facebook pages so you won’t miss out on the fun.
In closing, Thanks for all the great support that you gave us in the past! We’re hoping to find that new place and continue what we do! It is always a pleasure shooting with all of you and we look forward to doing it more in the future! Thanks again everyone!
Terry Bailado and the staff of Blackwater Practical Shooters
