Retro Rimfire Rifle Match: 

This match will be Oct 11 starting at 0830. It will be run as a 120 rounds for record conventional prone rimfire match. Match winner will receive trophy and award points. This match is to encourage those with the older match 22LR’s . For those who need match ammunition, I will bring for sale 500 round bricks of SK Match. The period Standard Rifle had a flat buttplate and fixed combs/cheek pieces. The butt plate could slide up and down, but it was basically flat: no undershoulder hook was allowed. Stocks were wood. Standard Rifles purchased from the CMP include Kimber M82, Rem 40X, H&R M12, Rem 513, Rem 514, Rem 541, Mossberg, Springfield M1 or M2 , Stevens M416, and Win M52A/B/C/D models. Other vintage rifles include Rem 37, Win M75, and BSA Martini. For unlisted very old models: if in original configuration and used in NRA competition, or used by the military in WW2/Korea as a training rifle, it is retro.  Shooters can use irons or scope. German rifles, vintage actions fitted on modernistic stocks of fiberglass, plastic, metal stocks, tube gun stocks may be used in competition but the shooter will not be eligible for awards.

We will have a complimentary cookout after the match, our Chef, Jimmy Haywood, will be cooking burgers, hotdogs, etc, for the shooters and Potshots.  Other Club Members are welcome to attend the cookout.       Brian

2014 HIGH POWER MATCHES:

There has been a serious decline in participation in the High Power Matches over the past year or two. In 2014 we plan to hold the John C. Garand matches and the work parties on the first Saturday of the month. The other dates will be practice matches with a $5.00 charge to cover the cost of targets. If participation picks up we will resume NRA Approved matches. The Retro, M1 and Old Bolt Gun matches will be conducted as previously.
