Default Free Match & Lunch! :)

This is an open call for competitors to fire a practice match at the Talladega Marksmanship Park. Shooters will fire an 800 aggregate on Range 1 on Saturday, January 28th. Volunteers for this test event will be given free range entry and will also be served lunch at the conclusion of the match. You will need to provide your own ammunition. Bring enough for ammo for an 800 agg with sighters. If time permits you may continue shooting, so you may want to bring additional ammo.

The purpose of this is to test new software and test out other changes we’ve made to the target systems. During lunch, we would like to have an open discussion on our target systems. We would like to explain the changes we’ve made and get your feedback on the match. Since we will be providing lunch, walk-ins will not be accepted. Competitors interested in helping should email Sara Rozanski, at [email protected] to register.

All CMP range requirements will still be mandatory. The gates to the park will open at 9:00 am so paperwork can be filled out. Safety briefing will begin at 9:30 am, with firing immediately after at 10a.

Please email Sara with questions or call 256-474-4408 to speak with someone at the Talladega Marksmanship Park

It is a "typical" Highpower rifle match, Do you have an M1, M1A, or AR?.

80 rounds, plus SIGHTERS. 2 magazines, for mag fed, 2 clips, for clip fed, reload required in rapid fire. Sucks to show up with only 1 mag, don't ask how I know this.

Everyone has had to come to their first, but only once. Come and have fun!

Good that you took the plunge! I see this is your first match. DON'T hesitate to ask questions, ask for pointers, help solving a problem, etc. I'd say 98% of these shooters will go out of they're way to help you.

There will be several of us there tomorrow. Stop by and say Howdy!
