I shot a Garand match at the Colorado Rife Club near Byers, CO today. As always, it was a total HOOT!
If you are at all interested in shooting high-power rifle matches, Garand matches are THE way to break into the game. All the ones I've shot have been no pressure/all fun, and everyone there is willing to help newcomers learn the ropes. They even loan M1 rifles to those unfortunate enough not to own one of the finest firearms ever made
The wind was a bit of a challenge today...gusting to 50 mph in the afternoon. I didn't realize how much the wind could move your rifle, even shooting from the prone position supported with a sling!
I managed to score a 269 with 1 X-ring shot (out of a possible 300)...not my best effort, but good enough for 6th place with 56 shooters.
