I have shot the D day matches for the last couple of years and even managed a couple of gold medal scores. It is a lot of fun. Did notice that the number of entries has declined each year since the original massive turnout. Only shooting my 03A3 with reduced loads now, due to a serious recoil related eye injury (retinal tear). What are the chances that CMP could add vintage military bolt guns to the D day matches? I figure that the M1's have the advantage during rapid fire and the bolt guns are probably a little more accurate during slow fire. That makes everybody pretty much even.
