    OK troops.

    Time to clean the cosmoline off of that old Springfield and show everyone how it's done. April's mail in match will feature surplus military rifles. 20 shots standing, with no support at a 50-yard downsized hostile enemy combatant. The shameless little dictator from Takrit, Iraq has volunteered to serve as this month's bullet catcher. Each shot that breaks the outline counts as "1" and shots breaking the X-ring count for tie-breakers.

    Stock class will be as-issued, NON-CURRENT military weapons. This class will include service-grade Garands, Springfield 1903/03A3, 30/40 Krag, FN/FAL, Enfield, Mauser, Schmidt Rubin, AK variants, SKS, etc. Heck, you can even use your old Brown Bess if you like.

    Improved class will include military weapons with ANY improvements from the service weapon as-issued. This class will also include current military weapons and clones -- including M-16/AR-15s and M1A/M14s.

    Scoped class will include any scoped military weapon, whether it's an as-issued sniper rifle or a bubba-ed up 1903.

    The Open class is for those who haven't yet figured out that you can get a sweet-shooting Swiss K31 for less than $100.

    April's target will be available here

    Safe shooting and good luck!

    P.S. Thank you to our troops doing the real fighting in Iraq! Please do all you can to support them and their families and let them know that most of the USA supports them wholeheartedly!

    Oh -- and be careful, if you use an MAS, Mosin-Nagant or Mauser it may decide to mis-fire at a critical moment.

    50 yds. The muzzle blast from my Mosin Nagant will burn the target. LOL! :what:

    I would like to make the motion that anyone using an old Turk Mauser or Mosin Nagant should have to shoot at 51 yards, because, in reality, they are actually only 35 yards away as it is.:D

    I would like to recommend that we reduce the number of shots fired. Actually, nevermind. It seemed to be ok shooting 20 times using the .22 target at 50 yards. I just know shooting the March match at 10 yards with those big 9mm and .45 ACP rounds made it hard to distinguish if it was two shots in a hole or three. I highly recommend that everyone print out their targets on card stock.

    Now is this a enter what ever rifles you have match? AKA can I shoot my K-31 and submit that score and shoot my 1903 and submit that score too? Let me figure out how many targets I have to print out if that is the case...hmmmm....still thinking....

    14 targets!

    What a busy month this is going to be. :D

    My Mosin is a carbine, however I am still concerned about the muzzle blast burning the target.

    Aw now you're ruined it.

    I shot all the rest of the matches in my backyard. I have an antigun neighbor. He has learned to tolerate the 38 and 45. He gets unhappy if I bring out a .357. He'll positively come unglued if I unleash my Garand. That means I have to drive all the way out to the range.
    Oh wait a minute, I might actually be able to get to an IDPA match this month. I'll take the stuff with me.
    NOW IF I COULD JUST HAVE ACCESS TO THIS MONTHS TARGET...

    What class would an 03/A3 that's simply had it's stock 'sporterized'? No sights, trigger, or any other mechanical modifications. Oh, and it wasn't re-bedded...

    Both of those long yahoo links give me "Can't be displayed" messages. My version of acrobat failed to initialize properly.
    However, I was able to get to it from my comfuser at work so I'm ready for ya. Be still my beating heart.

    You need Adobe Acrobat version 5.0. Available free at

    www.adobe.com

    Also -- printing it on soft "manila" paper is pretty close to target paper and makes scoring easier.

    I'd say that's a stock class. You can get a non-firing 03A3 at www.odcmp.com if you want to try to replace that stock with an original.

    No way, I love the stock.. it's just been cleaned up.. shortened under the barrel and the barrel 'topper' removed. My dad did the work a long time ago, and did quite a nice job..

    ROTR - None of the Yahoo links seem to be working. The target link Cordex supplied did work though.

    Just downloaded and printed the target, not sure I can even see the little wiener at 50yrds. This could get interesting.

    I just keep thinking that 20 rounds is a lot of rounds to try and fit in that guy. Plus that is a lot of practiving. For those of us made of steel, how are you going to count 20 holes on the paper if they are all in that little man? Can we reduce it to ten?

    If you've got a ragged hole around te "X" and no fliers, I'll assume shots went through previous holes -- just like shooting NRA Bullseye. The shooter gets the benefit of the doubt.

    But remember - this is offhand, not benchrest shooting. That dictator is pretty little out at 50 yards:)

    Although 20 shots may be difficult to score, please score your shooting yourself. Be sure to keep it honest but also give yourself the benefit of the doubt.

    This is for fun, so be sure to get out there and shoot!

    Boy I need this month to make up for last. I am disappointed in myself. Any word on if we are supposed to enter just one military rifle? I would think we are supposed to enter just one rifle for each catagory right? Or can we enter multiples and then have them listed by caliber and gun? I would imagine one gun per class in order to save the organizers from having to score the usual 13 participants times their 12 surplus rifles each.

    Now I wish I would have know about the open class in the first match. I am behind!

    I'll allow THREE different types of rifles total per contestant - regardless of class. They must be different types of rifles (great excuse to get one of those Yugo SKSs). A note of caution - your LOWEST score is added to your yearly cumulative total.
