These rifles can include M1903, M1903A3, Enfields, Mosin-Nagants, Garands, M1 Carbines, AR 15’s.

We will shoot the normal CMP M-1 Garand course of fire which is 10 rounds slow fire prone, 10 rounds rapid fire prone and 10 rounds slow fire offhand. If you can’t shoot some of these positions, no problem. shoot however you like. We will shoot some sighters.

The Club has 4 Garand’s available for your use. You can buy the 30-06 M1 ammunition from the Club at $25 per 35 rounds. Please do not bring commercial 30-06 ammunition for these rifles.

The fee is $5 for members, $10 for non- members. You can shoot more than one rifle type as we expect relays will be needed. The fee includes targets and one relay, If you wish to shoot additional relays you will need to pay the fee for each relay. Registration, rifle inspection, and squading will begin at 8:30 am.

Prior to the shoot a brief moment of silence will be observed for those who lost their lives. Even if you don’t want to shoot bring the family and come anyway, see and handle the rifles that were used in the wars.
