    wow are we off track. You guys are shooters! Some serious credentials there guy's! I have no doubt seen you both at camp perry. It is a small world.

    I only shot the garand shoot a couple of times in the early 1970's. If i remember correctly, they had just started the program. I did qualify. I weighed about 130 pounds soaking wet. That big 30 ought six kicked me like a mule. So glad it was an automatic. I was lucky enough to have a friend whose dad was a bench rest-er. He made his own rifles. Big heavy 30-06 springfield actions and mauser m98's. He bought the m1 through the cmp program and entered me in the civilian shoot! I think he thought i had natural talent. Now i am sure i looked hilarious and he wanted a good laugh.

    And pelago now i know who you are! I always look forward to my rifleman mag reporting on the shoots. I know i had to read your name in 2008. I am going to my back issues now. 91 and 1 standing with an m1 garand! Are you kidding me!!! I can think of very few young men who can hold a loaded m1 at shoulder long enough to do that.
    do you remember in 2015 when the shooter got medeviaced off of vialle??? Some old guy had a piece of shrapnel come out and take a artery with it?? Yeah that was my dumb *** getting loaded into the chopper

    Once i took my grand dads 03 match to the range at butner, using his dope on a 3X5 card still in his handwriting i loaded a round and first shot in over fifty years was a 10 just out of the X ring at 1000 yards and i used a lyman sight to do it, that was so neat using his rifle that he shot at perry in 1938

    Happy Fathers Day to all dads!

    pelago, WOW! No doubt all that recoil shaking up your veins. I am sure glad you made it through that.

    I am stoked about your Grand Fathers rifle shoot. Man using his data first shot! That makes my hair stand up. If anyone doubts he was standing right there with you, they are of very little faith. The shear difficulty of a 1000 yard shot, the data must be perfect to even get a hit. A X first shot, that is unreal. I am going to say you did that with a 70+ year old gun? At least the action. I am guessing it was a Springfield 1903?

    To get back on track... what was it like shooting a mounted gun on a rolling Jeep? I know you know!

    03;s match.jpg 03 target rifles
    three of them, top one is 03 match grand dads, second one is a m1922 set up for prone, shoots sub minute at 100 yards with 22 match ammo
    the other one is a standard m1922, it is unfair to squirrils

    also i have unertly scopes for both match rifles

    shot the first team sniper match and only got the silver, shot a perfect round but my partner shot two 9's used a original model 1941USMC sniper rifle made from a 1929 national match, done in philly in 1942 has a 8power unertl scope on it holds i minute at 600 with sling

    Dawgs and cats seem to name themselves after we get to know them.

    Jake is a great name, along with a great movie.

    Wow... classic beautiful rifles. I love the scopes.

    I can't see Jake! Something about "call Admin bad attachment"
