Going to my First CMP "Garand" Match. Any Advice?
I going to my first competition on Sunday.. Its a CMP sanctioned "Garand" Match.
I plain on using my M1903, its strictly a military rifles competition. All the rifles have to be in "As issued" condition without a scope.. (Awww... cant cheat with my PU.. :p )
Any advice for me? What should I expect? I think the range is 250 yards...
Never been to one. Let us know how it goes.
is your gun sighted in yet?
bring a shooting glove. if you cant get one...bring the thickest winter glove you got to sling in with.
you do know how to sling in...right?
bring a mat to lay on.
got a spotting scope?
got sight black?
bring a strong bag to carry all your stuff in.
bring rain gear and a good hat with a long brim to cover your peep when you shoot.
buy a can of sticky glue for your buttplate.
im assuming youll be off hand, sit and prone?
do you have a shooting jacket?
250 yds? 30.06? if you dont put them on black, theres something wrong.
usn shooting team. 93-97.
Take along some Birchwood sight black, and spray the front sight. Gives a better sight picture to hold to. Be sure to wear a shooting shirt that you can button the collar so no hot shells can drop down your neck.
