JANUARY HIGHPOWER RIFLE MATCH
I have gotten a number of messages from shooters already saying they are concerned about the falling temperatures
and shooting in the cold might not be really fun. So we are canceling the January rifle match.
Hopefully we will see you first Saturday in February.
With warm regards,
P.S. Feel free to invite non-members. This match is open to the public as well.
The CMP will sponsor the "Eastern CMP Games" a full week of competition at The National Guard facility in Butner, NC in May. Our match is a great way to get tuned up.
Seven shooters braved the thick overcast and threat of rain to attend the first RCGC Highpower event on Saturday 4, November. The Civilian Marksmanship Program, National M1 Match course of fire was used to help the guys who had attended the M1 Clinic but had never fired in competition before get acclimated to the discipline.
Congratulations guys I was impressed by some of the scores shot by first timers!
Our next match will be Saturday December, 2nd. Sign-up will begin at 0900 with the safety briefing at 0930 and first shot downrange at 10:00 AM sharp. This match is open to the public as well as RCGC members. The range fee is $10.00 for members and $15 for non-members. I have not figured out a way to safely convene the match while allowing other shooters to use the rifle range so for the time being the range will be confined to the highpower match from 10:00 AM until noon.
100 yards - any modern military service rifle is allowed - bolt action or semi-auto.
M1, M1A, AR15, M1 carbine, 03/03A3, Mosin Nagant, 6.5 Swedish etc. I’m sure almost all of you have one so make plans to join us.
There is a mandatory magazine change in the rapid fire stage with 2 then 8 rounds or 5 and 5 in a bolt action rifle.
We will shoot the CMP Trophy Match as found here:
