Service Rifle Match Results 13 April 2013

The April Military "As Issued" match had a larger than usual turnout with 9 shooters showing up for the event. The weather was beautiful for shooting and there was a very wide variety of rifles to observe being fired. The M1 Garand was the most prolific rifle out there with no less than 5 shooters firing them. There was also a US M1903A3, an M1A (US M14 type rifle), a Swedish 6.5x55 Carl Gustavs  Mauser, and a US M1898 Springfield (Krag). An M1 Carbine has not been fired for score in the club Military Matches for years, and it was good to see that a shooter did use one in the April match.


If you have a Military rifle and want to get started in this type of shooting, but want to get some more information before you start, it's fine to come out just to watch and see what's going on. If you have questions, go ahead and ask away-there are plenty of knowledgeable people that are glad to help!
