Default mcmiller iron 50 chicago kenosha racine milwaukee areas

for those of you in the southeast wisconsin north east illinoise area mcmiller sports center is holding the second mcmiller iron 50 shoot. you need an original battle rifle 50 years old at least (no modern replicas like the springfield m1a) and it must use iron sights no optics.

july 22 is the shoot date. last year i took 2nd place with an m1 garand

i will be out there!! going to use my 1903a3 this year

Hmmm 2 hours away.... I might try and make it. The only thing I can shoot will be my 91/30, but I might be able to borrow a friends Enfield. For $20 I might just enter and try not to embarrass myself too badly.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.
