Its a national match that's held by the CMP and they do a service rifle and a service pistol match every year and the top 100 scorers get permanent orders to wear the presidents hundred tab on their uniform that's all I know trying to find out all i can so i can wear that tab

If you are in the military you need to contact your Unit Marksmanship Coordinator. If you are National Guard your unit may not have a designated UMC, so you can try to contact the State Marksmanship Coordinator. You then need to join up with your Battalion or Brigade level marksmanship team, and then compete to earn a spot on your Division, State, or Regional team. Then you can start working towards the President's Hundred and/or Governor's Twenty.

If you are civilian, I have no idea.

Shot and missed the cut off by one point. Such is life.

The President's 100 rifle match is 10 shots at 200 yards, slow fire standing, 10 shots 300 yards prone rapid fire, and 10 shots 600 yards prone slow fire.

The targets used at 200/300/600 are the standard NRA decimal target.

You do not get sighters, you need to know the zero of your rifle and be able to adjust your sights for the wind conditions.

It will take a couple of Camp Perry's before you get confident in your wind calls.

It will be quite the feat, especially with a Garand.

It may be more feasible to get a Ranger tab, if you just want a tab.

You haven't a snowball's chance in hell of winning a President's 100 tab unless you participate with a marksmanship unit, either active service or National Guard or Reserves. Only there can you have access to the equipment, coaching, and practice that would give you a shot at cracking the 100.

I wasn't going to say it, but yeah. Some things are best learned by experience.

Plus it would have been interesting to see someone show up on the service rifle firing line toting a rack grade Garand.
