Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

National Vintage Military Rifle Match 4-5 August 2018

#1 Post by Cattus Borealis » Tue May 01, 2018 3:46 pm

Hello Everyone,

Anyone here shooting at any CMP Matches this year?

I am training to shoot for Vintage Military Rifle Match on 4 and 5 August at Camp Perry Ohio. This is my first trip to Camp Perry.

Any advice on traveling to Camp Perry or shooting at these matches? I intend to shoot my Turkish Gew 88/05/35.

Any cool stuff to see in the area? My wife and I will be staying with a friend in Southern Michigan.

Here is the info on the match from the CMP webpage:

SPRINGFIELD & VINTAGE MILITARY RIFLE MATCHES – SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, 4-5 AUGUST 2018
The National Springfield Rifle Match is a CMP Games event where all competitors must fire “as-issued” M1903 or M1903A3 rifles that comply with CMP rules for as-issued military rifles. As a CMP Games event, the Springfield Match stresses participation, camaraderie and history and offers an ambience that makes Springfield Match Day a truly enjoyable experience for competitors. Competitors can fire in both the Springfield and Vintage Military Rifle Matches.

The National Vintage Military Rifle Match is a CMP Games event where competitors must fire “as-issued” U. S. Krag or M1917 rifles or manually operated foreign military rifles. The Vintage Military Rifle Match encourages recreation-oriented target shooters to use these fascinating military rifles in target shooting events that strive to preserve military marksmanship traditions. Competitors can fire in both the Springfield and Vintage Military Rifle Matches.

I think there are two categories in this match....

1903 rifles

1917 and everything else.

I think the 1917 is the better fighting rifle but thats just me.

I plan to just use a rifle and a sling. No goofy vests or jackets for me!
