I just learned of this on a Facebook post by Talladega. Itís supposed to be Saturday, 11-6.

Iím in, pulled a 1944 M1 out of the safe, found a case of 1945 surplus ammo and Iím going for it. Wonít be competitive as Iíve never done this before, but Iíll have a blast trying it.

Hope to see you there, including you Keith.
Ken, Definitely doing EIC and a GSM match. Most likely give the outlaw Garand match a go. I've shot a LOT of Steel Challenge matches but have NEVER done it with a Garand!

Shane told me he’s gonna do it with his Carbine. Also said he forwarded 20+ invites. Two others that I know of, plus you and I are also gonna shoot it.

This event could really be a blast. Just think of the CMP promotes it for the 75th D-Day Anniversary Matches.

IMO,if this match was more like a travel games event,complete with all matches shot at those it may be worth the trip.

My understanding is that this match will be run and gun, like a USPSA carbine match. I'll be running the M1 Carbine. I think there may be other matches going on that day on the rifle ranges, but thats a separate thing. See you there!

The CMP is listening, you just have to talk/write them. They obviously want attendance to improve. I like the idea of having GSMMís at D-Day, perhaps with a perk if one competes in all the D-Day firearms Matches- Garand, Carbine and 1911.

Thanks to all who approve of the D-Day match being a Travel Games event.
Anyone care to make this into a poll?

Did notice that the number of entries has declined each year since the original massive turnout.

Less people coming out.


The first one was THE FIRST ONE! Lots of people came from across the nation. I drove from the PRCA (Party's Republic of California, with a short stop in AZ.) Lots of travel days, lots of miles and lots of money. Not practical for an annual expedition. It will be like Camp Perry; most of the participants will travel less than 500 miles.
