MESSAGE FROM: Commander, Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF)
MISSION: STOP THE ADVANCE OF ENEMY FORCES
RESOURCES: YOUR OWN. WHAT YOUR MEN CAN CARRY WE ESTIMATE 75 CENTERFIRE RIFLE ROUNDS MAX, 20 PISTOL ROUNDS, 30 rounds of .22LR
REQUIREMENTS: PRE-REGISTRTAION (See Below)
RESTRICTIONS: WWII ERA FIREARMS OR VISUALLY SIMILAR REPRODUCTIONS ONLY. You may NOT shoot it with an AR15. Scoped variants of WWII rifles are fine, but you will be presented with smaller targets or more challenging shots if you use one.
All within 251 Stoneyford Rd. Holland PA. (See club website for address & directions).
The LRGC practical rifle, CMP, and action pistol teams have allied forces, and are working to create a series of battlefield style course of fire challenges that pay respect to the soldiers who fought on the real ones they represent. You will be fighting at:
STALINGRAD - Indoors with bolt action .22LR's, work with a team to engage an enemy force of 1" plastic army men inside a constructed village occupied by enemy forces.
STOP THE TANK! - Having disabled an enemy tank with your Bazooka / Panzerfaust, your last resort is to take out the enemy tank crew with a pistol at 25Y. If you don't have a period pistol, we will have some available but you must furnish modern ammunition in either .45acp or 9mm luger. No holster is required.
OMAHA BEACH - Stun the occupants of an enemy bunker with a mock grenade, then charge the bunker with a team mate and eliminate all the enemy forces inside.
BERLIN - Head shots matter. Demoralize the enemy with superior marksmanship skills and your ability to stay cool in a stressful situation.
THE ARDENNES - It's time to stretch that rifle's legs GI! The wooded area of the LRGC 200y range is the perfect backdrop for racking up enemy casualties. This is a duel stage. Shooter vs. Shooter. You'll each fire at a long line of steel targets at 200Y in alternating order. Don't fall behind! The first one to the finish line gets the most points.
THE BULGE - A five shooter event, your object is to remain among the living after a 24 round contest where missing the enemy too many times results in your own downfall.
Please see the regular LRGC PRACTICAL RIFLE page for the appropriate gear. Remember to dress warmly. The event is rain or shine. You don't want to have to look your grandfather in the eye and tell him you couldn't come out and shoot for a few hours while knowing that he spent three days in a freezing ditch in the forest.
Re-enactors are welcome, but remember this is a live-fire event, and there will be no occasion where the pointing of a real or mock firearm at another person is acceptable. If you are part of a WWII re-enactor group, please email us. We'd love to include you.
