AEDC Vintage Match:

Anyone interested in the AEDC Match on Nov. 15th, contact me on j.moses1@comcast.net and I will forward the program. James Moses.

Range Rules:

I have a report that some members are MISTAKENLY under the impression that I told them that the 200 yard range operates independently of the other ranges.  This is INCORRECT.  Anyone with questions concerning range rules can contact me on 256 534 7968. James Moses

2016 100 yd High Power:

I do not plan on running the monthly 100 yard High Power matches in 2016.  Ken Miholits is willing to run these if he can get some back-up.  Contact Ken on 256 873 7444 or kemordnance@knology.net if you are willing to help him. James Moses

1000 yd Champ:

Club member Danny Biggs won the 2015 Combined AL/TN 1000 yard Championship held in Sept. at the AEDC Range near Tullahoma TN. Congratulations!   Ken Miholits is willing to run these if he can get some back-up.  Contact Ken on 256 873 7444 or kemordnance@knology.net if you are willing to help him.

Alabama High Power Championship:

The B&G sponsored the 2015 Alabama High Power Championship Oct. 17th at the new CMP range near Talladega. 30 competitors participated. Things went well until the 600 yard match. At this point the electronic targets began to miss some shots. It was decided to drop the 600 yard scores and base the Championship on the 200 and 300 yard scores. The CMP is working to correct the problem, however, the High Power range at the CMP facility will be closed until the problem has been fixed.

Want Ads:

I have some once fired brass, .308 & 30.06, and some 173 gr bullets for sale. Brass and bullets $30.00/100. I might be talked into parting with a H&R M1 (almost 100 %) or an IHC M1 (almost 100 %). M1's $1200 each. Jimmy Haywood 256 723 2245

Work Party:

The Range is in pretty good shape right now, therefore the work party originally scheduled for Oct. 31 has been CANCELLED. Anyone needing to get in some work time can empty trash barrels, which is an on-going task. Be sure there is NO FIRE in any barrel being emptied. Contact the Range Maintenance Coordinator to determine the work credit per barrel emptied.

Retro Smallbore:

Retro Rimfire Rifle Match: This match will be Oct 10 starting at 0830. It will be run as a 120 rounds for record conventional prone rimfire match. Match winner will receive a Retro Rifle Trophy. This match is to encourage those with the older match 22LR’s. 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.
