Default Clubs/Matches around San Antonio?

I'm looking for any club around San Antonio that does CMP rifle matches. Anyone have info? The search function did not help.

Thanks,
John

Check the Competition Tracker. I found GSM matches at Clubs in Lyons and Franklin TX.

Lyons is closer at about 160 miles. I drive 150 miles each way to my club in Florida for monthly CMP GSM matches, it's not bad

Thanks! I also found http://www.southtexasshooting.org/faq.html. They may have matches too. I'm looking to find a local community, hopefully.

I hear ya. But sometimes you have to go to where the fun is!
I don't mind the drive once a month to get to shoot at a great range with great folks and compete in sanctioned CMP matches at 200 yards. Just grab the coffee, crank the classic rock tunes and cruise up I 95 at 5 00 am when there's light traffic on a Saturday morning.
Good luck and have fun

I live very close to the Lyons match. It is a reduced course (100 yards) with a small but absolutely fantastic group of people that attend. I didn’t know anything about highpower/service rifle, I was just looking for a place to shoot my newly acquired M1 Garand with some people that new something about them (I had never shot one before, and figured that would be a good place to find some “experience””). Even though I was the only one with a Garand, everyone there was super friendly, encouraging, and welcomed me into the sport. They had extra equipment that they outfitted me with, fixed problems that I had, and coached me through the positions.

I cannot speak highly enough of the people that attend the Lyons match at Brazos Valley Service Rifle. If every club was like this, the world of shooting sports would be GREATLY improved.

Anyways, I know it would be a long drive from San Antonio… especially for a reduced course… but the people are top notch.

These guys... http://southtexasshooting.org/

matches are in New Braunfels.
I used to make it to a lot of their matches but work changed that. I hear they did a HUGE remodel of their range, Haven't seen it yet. Maybe this month
