This match will be held following the completion of the Varmint for Score Match that takes place on the third Sunday morning of every month. The approximate start time of this match should be around 10:30-11:00 A.M. and will also be held on the 200 yard range.
The competition will consist of 10 shots fired for score at a single 100 yard target from benchrest. The target used will have approximately a 12 inch bullseye and there will be a 15 minute time limit.
Any rifle that was a standard issue military battle rifle of any nation 1954 or earlier may be used. For example, if you have a 43 Spanish model 1879 Argentine Rolling Block rifle, a 45-70 Springfield trapdoor rifle, a 30-40 Krag, any Mauser type, or even a M1 Garand or M1 carbine, it may be used as they were all standard issue battle rifles. However, the rifle must still be in its original military condition/configuration. The rifle must have its original battle open/iron sights. For example, a 1903 Springfield with target globe front sight and a Lyman micrometer rear peep sight could not be used. No scoped rifles are allowed. Also, no aftermarket triggers may be installed.
Presently there is a $5.00 fee to compete in one of our shooting competitions. If you participate in the Varmint for Score Match, it’s $5.00 fee will also allow you to participate in the Surplus Rifle Match at no extra charge.
Mr. Vern- Things ARE getting better all the time. You have a different group of Directors that want to run the club for the benefit of the MEMBERS. This is causing more members to get involved. We ( the Directors ) can't take all the credit for this stuff happening either, active members are just as responsible for these new fun events.
We listen to the membership and if there are other types of events wanted we welcome any member to bring us a plan. We will be happy to look at it with an open mind. BUT! Be prepared to be a large part of implementation and administration of it. That's usually where things fall apart. People want something but don't want any part of the work involved.
Dave- 15 minutes will be an ETERNITY for YOU to fire 10 rounds.......better bring a book or something! What ya' gonna shoot? I think I'm gonna go with an 03A3 myself.
I know what you mean about seeing the targets. I have some 12” around here but @ 100 yards they look like a ping pong ball with a big Afro. I can’t tell for sure where the edges are. Getting older really sucks but then it sure beats the alternative.
