    Talking Garand Match in Colorado today...

    Went to a John C. Garand rifle match at the Colorado Rifle Club near Byers today. Perfect weather (80 degrees and sunny skies) and a pretty good turn-out of 31 shooters.

    These matches are always a great deal of fun, and the organization and safety ethics make it an all-around enjoyable experience.

    I got to shoot today with another Combat Carry forum member: .45forme. He was shooting a Springfield 03-A3 bolt rifle, and I had my favorite M1 Garand. We both shot at 200 yards.

    Thats me on the left...

    This was the last match of the year, but I would encourage any other Colorado members of CC to consider attending a match next year. The Colorado State Shooters Assn. provides loaner rifles, and shooting a match will earn a certificate that entitles you to purchase an M1 rifle or Springfield 03 from the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

    Scores don't matter for the certificate, and it's always a good time anytime you can get out and shoot!

    Sounds great Rick - all the better for a beaut' day

    My long range rifle days are long past but I do still get the urge now and again, tho prone shooting now is very tricky for back reasons.

    Glad you both enjoyed.

    Talk about a small world.I got to meet a member from this forum,From the MANY that are here from all over.Shoot with him and shoot the bull.We even do the same thing for a living(High pressure steam boilers).The front row of targets are the 100 yard line.The targets WAY back there are the 200s. The Grand Matches let you qualify for Civilian Marksmanship Program weapons. The best part about the match is they supply the ammo. Hope to see some of you out there next year. The fee is small. You can look for the schedule on the matches at Colorado Rifle Club. (just search CRC you will find it.) on line. And you dont have to be a member.
