Smile Hello from Georgia


Greetings from the Peach State! I’m new to the forum but not new to CMP. Been shooting at Talladega Park since it opened, I own a few Garands, 1903’s, an 03a3, and an M1 carbine. I also love to collect and shoot USGI Springfield rifles from the flintlocks through the M14.

Hi 6string,


It first glance I thought I saw " G string" not 6 string like on a guitar!

Welcome to the forum it a GREAT place to learn & pass your knowledge on to other people.

I'm in Augusta GA & shoot at Ft. Gordon & other ranges in the area.

Enjoy every day,
broom

Hello 6 String,

Where abouts in GA are you located?
I belong to River Bend Gun Club in Dawsonville, it's a great club.

We have a number of CMP sanctioned events every year. As a matter of fact I am running a M1 Carbine match on 8/31/19. If your interested P.M. and I'll get you the details or visit our website calendar.

Hey 6string:

The more Dawg's in the pound the better. Welcome to the forum, but what took you so long? You have all the right firearms and know about the CMP/TMP, but you have been missing the best part! Lots of knowledge, resources and a great community here so enjoy.

Like TJN22 said, you should definitely check out Riverbend Gun Club if you haven't already. I made it there for the first time in May for the CMP Riflemans Match. Hotter than heck, but well done and they have a ton of events on the calendar. Was thinking of attending the 100 Yd. Match/Clinic they hold every month, but will have to consider the Carbine Match that TJN22 mentioned. Thanks for the bringing the match to our attention Tim and hope you do not mind me sharing the links:

Let us know if you in the neighborhood 6stirng and hope to see ya on one of the line's soon.
Go Dawgs!

And thanks for the plug. I shoot the Reduced match a lot, it's a fun, easy, no pressure kind of match. No kidding Riflemen"s Weekend was hot.
