I have mixed feelings on e targets. The pits ard half the. Experience of a highpower match in my opinion . But e matches give shooterx more time e to prepare for shooting. They are also very nice in the rapids.

I'm shooting an XTC match at perry in June. Maybe we will get some intel about the nationals at that time.

I'm with you there. Shooting service rifles and working pits along with military participation is what gave these matches their very unique feel.

Allowing scopes and all sorts of aftermarket doo-dads was bad enough, but the thought of losing the pit experience, particularly at Perry, is a very sad notion to me.

And what's the up-side? Get the match over faster? Why would I want to do that? I'd like the world to slow down a bit. A few long hot days at Perry are often the very medicine the doctor ordered.

Anyhow, no sense lamenting changes that haven't taken place yet. I'll be at Perry for the P100 and the NTI. Can't wait!

I definitely “get” what you mean about working in the pits. There’s bullets going 3 feet over your head, at about 3000 ft./s, and you’re perfectly safe!
Everybody should work the pits at least once! That’s said, the sport is changing and continuing to change. The electronic targets cut the time of the match in half, and I believe, attract More new people to the sport.

Example: at the CMP Eastern games, which has used electronic targets for several years, I have shot five rifle matches, with five different rifles, in two days! Even though these were 30 shot “games matches”, there’s no way I could’ve gotten that many matches in in two days if we were working the pits.

Regarding the use of scopes and other “doodads”: the service rifle has evolved since 1881. Our sport must reflect what Army and Marine infantrymen use currently in warfare. And it does.

Best regards.

Are they still on? I think the CMP should offer weekly updates in case the current idiot-in-chief orders a new covid hoax and we get the rug pulled from under us. If there is no commercial row, no food, half capacity ranges and no scoring of targets because we cannot go near each other it going to be a weird year.

Maybe we wait until 2022?

Everything seems to be a 'go' except camping. Wish that would have opened up as I'd save a ton of money. Wife is coming along so huts / barracks are out and hotel rates are crazy high.

With the election well behind us, I wouldn't expect any state or federal ordered lock-down shenanigans.

Hi All,

lonegunman brings up a GREAT point that has bothered me & others for a few years.

I attended years ago where we could get a nice SIT DOWN meal at a fair price. We attended again in 2019 The only thing open at Camp Perry was one food truck that had no real selection & was usually cold or over cooked & ALWAYS over priced. ( Aug. for the vintage Springfield match's & rattle battle match's)

I understand the massive effort required for a short time need & required clearances to sell food on base. How many shooters have to go off base & waste more time have a good meal in town.
Has anyone on base looked into a drill about the time of the CMP Match's to supply food to local residents in case of a natural disaster? I'm sure the cost of the food would be offset with a profit to the MWR & everyone wins!

Good luck this year,
broomhandle
