Could be because ARs and the like had nothing to do with D-Day?

Unfortunately it can be a bit hit or miss at the store during big events since so many people are there. They'll likely have that stuff, but even last fall at the 600 I wanted to look at gloves and there were no left hand gloves. Just my opinion, but I have never been disappointed in any piece of Creedmoor Sports gear, from gloves to jackets to mats to stools, etc. And a lot of it is made right there in Anniston.

It was already mentioned the gear at the park is "hit or miss". True words. What you could do is get there early enough to drop by Creedmoor in Aniston. Call and talk to Brent beforehand and he will fix you up. If you are in a jam you would surprised at how many people will offer to lend you gear.

Either way, hope there is a big turnout. We always have fun at these matches!

If my son or a friend tag along, is it allowed for shooters to share rifles? I don't know other folks locally that have mil-surp rifles, so I was just wondering if I would need to fly solo or if, for instance, my son wanted to come along if he could shoot in a different relay with my rifle(s).

Yes, you may share rifles. Just make a note when you register or email Christina at competitions@thecmp.org to let her know so she can make sure you are squadded on separate relays.

I had mine all filled out but had to cancel at the last minute due to family events that came up.
I contacted Christina and there is no Modern Military and you can only sign up for 3 GSV matches plus what others events you May choose.

For those who have never been to Talladega Marksmanship Park,or Anniston CMP store.
Give yourself some additional days to see some of the other places of interest.
Creedmoor sports,Berman Museum,Talledaga Raceway.
Good places to eat all over.Top of the River,Mellow Mushroom,Logan’s Roadhouse,and some good BBQ places.
So who’s going?

Shooters share rifles all the time. No big deal. I have lent rifles to people to shoot who were in a jam. Guys I didn't even know. It's easy to do because I have seen it done at matches every since I have started shooting CMP matches.

Like someone else mentioned ....just make sure you and your son are on different relays (preferably the same firing point).

Hope ya'll can make it!
