Default M1 Carbine Match?

I am curious if there are any M1 Carbine matches in Texas this year?

Superdave-

You didn't say where you are located! If you're near the Dallas/Ft. Worth area there are two clubs that shoot CMP GSV matches that I know of. Haltom City is near Ft. Worth, and the Terrell club is near Terrell, TX east of Dallas. The Terrell Club has a 200 yd range, and the matches are usually the 30 round NM course. The Terrell club is having a match this Saturday June 25th starting at 9:00 am. Here are the links:

The other option would be to shoot at Panola County, which everyone calls "Carthage" since its near the town of Carthage, TX close to the Louisiana border. I've not shot there but it is a full distance range with 200, 300, & 600 yd HP matches. The Texas State Rifle Championships are held there every year. Here is the link:

But if you can, come to Terrell this weekend. Its a fun match, and they don't get real technical about the rules or rifles. Line goes hot around 9:00 am. Its a 200 yd range, and you score & paste your own target between stages. We're usually done firing about noon with an average of about 15 shooters. We shoot the 30 round National Match course with at least 5 "sighters", so bring at least 35 rounds.

Forgot to mention that the firing line is covered so you won't be cooked in the Texas sun.
