UPDATE:
The start times of the matches are being pushed back 30 minutes do to the Local VFW/American Legion performing a Flag Rasing ceremony. Here is what we have lined up so far:
9:00am - Signal cannon sounds (Yes we will be firing a black powder cannon!)
Color Guard from the local VFW and American Legion perform a flag rasing ceremony.
The National Anthem will be played over a portable sound system. Or we may have it sung by two members from VFW/American Legion that sing professionally.
There will also be a display of M1's put on by a club member.
We are also trying to line up enough volunteers to pull targets and score. So really all a person would have to do is show up and shoot! Be prepared however to pull targets and score in case we don’t have enough volunteers to go around.
FREE BBQ Lunch will be provided
Hope to see you there!

Sounds like she's gonna be a fun one!!!! Hopefully the friggen rain stays away this time. I'd like to actually shoot my M1 in this one but she's still having some issues cycling reliably. I'll bring it with this time and one of the experts can go through it, possibly even with a few rounds DR and see what my problem is.

Sure we should be able to figure it out. Couple things to check before hand is to grease the snot out of the op rod spring. If it makes any noise when you open the bolt it needs more grease!

Another thing to check is that the gas port of the rifle is in line with the hole in the gas cyclinder. Take the gas cyclinder plug and lock off and you should be able to see the port in the window of the gas cyclinder. I know one person who shall remain nameless didn't have this lined up and I had to operate his oprod for him. This was during the Nationals by the way.

Anyway bring it along and we'll get it running.

See you there!

Tom

Just a bump for this thread and to let everyone know we had a great time at the matches on Saturday. Unfortunately, I could not be there in time to catch the M1 for Vets match, but it appears that the turnout was good and that everyone had a great time.

Thanks again to Tom and all the members of GRRC for hosting and operating all the CMP shoots and a very special thanks to the guys who spent Saturday in the pits for us. The service was great and, knowing how hot it was on the line, I'm sure it was probably even worse down there. I greatly appreciate it.

We're looking forward to seeing all of our newly made friends next year and will hopefully see even more new faces then, as well.

Thanks again,

John (and Bill)

Great Job G.R.R.C. very well run event and the food was awesome! I will be back!

This was the first time I have shot my (or any) Garand other than sighting it in the day before and I had a great time! Shot a great score on the first match but I made a real "M1 rookie" mistake in the 2nd match rapid prone and didn't have my 8 round clip loaded correctly - one round wasn't seated. Now I know better!

Hearty thanks to the GRRC crew and the cook. Was a great time. I shot well, would have posted better scores but for an exploding 6,5mm bullet and a reloading fumble in my trusty K-31 (my fault). I definately need a different job that gives me more time to practice offhand. Was nice finally getting to shoot the sniper course.

Felt much more handicapped by my inexperience reading the goofy wind at GRRC than by the 3.5x scope and gritty trigger on my SVM. I think the rifle and scope are up to the task, I was easliy able to put the aiming point precisely where I wanted and use the front sight hood shadow to keep parallax consistent. I shot a nice eliptical group from 600 spanning the 7 ring from 9 to 3 oclock! My 300yd score improved significantly from last time. Now If I can figure out the Kentucky, those'll be 10's.
