Mid-Range Prone and GSM

October’s Match is moved to 7-8 October 2017.

For our final match at HCGC this year, we will be hosting a Garand/Springfield/Vintage Military Rifle Match (7-8 Oct). Course of fire will be 3×600 prone slow fire both days.  You now have no reason not to shoot that vintage military rifle you have hiding in the closet.  So get that ammo loaded, come out and have some fun to finish the year.

Attached is the match program. 

This is a Club event and the intent is to have fun!  Put this on your calendar.  Hope to see you there!  Tim, MidSouth Marksmen
