    This is our Battle of the Bulge shoot. So named due to the usually very cold weather.

    All shooters will work the pits(pull targets, & score).

    Here is a link to last years thread on the shoot.

    http://forum.pafoa.org/competitions-...ot-200-yd.html

    Here is the link to this years thread in the "competition forum"

    http://forum.pafoa.org/competitions-...stol-club.html

    As far as "legal firearms";

    Any WWII Rifle;
    US M1 Garand
    M1 Carbine
    M1903
    M1917
    German K98
    K/G 41
    K/G 43
    Russian Mosin-Nagant 91/30
    Mosin-Nagant 91
    M44
    British Enfield all variations

    Japanese Arisaka

    Italian Carcano

    Hopefully you get the picture...
    All rifles must have "AS ISSUED SIGHTS"

    The Club has a limited number of M1 Garands which can be loaned for the shoot.
    Ammo for the Club Garands must be purchased from the club, unless the Match Director approves your ammo.
    Cost should still be $ 0.50/rd.

    If you have any more questions I'll be keeping an eye on the threads.

    Pete

    Pete, thank you for your response. The closest to a "military issue" rifle would be my ar15 with iron sights. When funds allow I will be purchasing a Garand. But I don't see that happening by the time of the shoot. It really sounds like fun.

    You can come on out & watch, it'll give you an Idea of how our NRA Service Rifle matches run.
    We have them once a month from April to Oct.
    Your Ar 15 is welcome there.

    There are also Club Garands that can be borrowed for the shoot.

    The match starts at 1:00 P.M.

    Sign in at Noon.

    Tomorrow's forcast is partly sunny, with a high of 25degF.

    DRESS FOR THE COLD!

    There will be hot coffee, and bean soup available.

    Bring a shooting mat, or something to lay on, there is snow on the firing line.

    See you there,

    Yes, it is.

    I'll post the date when I get the 2014 calendar finalized.

    It's usually the last Sunday in Jan.
