Service Rifle Match Results 14 July 2012

 

The return of the Airfield Shooting Club Military Matches is now official and the "As Issued" Military Rifle Match fired this past Saturday on July 14th was a total success. There were 6 shooters on site testing their skills with battle rifles from a bygone era, proving these rifles are still able to deliver the goods in the 21st century. Vintage U.S. Military rifles were by far the most popular rifles present, but there were 2 Mosin Nagants on the line and it was great to see these old warhorses come to life!

 

Service Rifle Match Results January 2011

The day proved to be a very good day for a match.  There was no glare from the sun and no wind.  The temperature was a little on the cold side, but not uncomfortable.  Four shooters participated and everyone had fun.  There was a rather unique rifle that was used during this match, a fully restored Fusil Automatique Léger (FAL) or when translated from Dutch is ‘light automatic rifle’.  This was the service rifle used by the British Army until 1994 and other nations of the United Kingdom
