    I fulfilled that CMP requirement by taking a firearm safety course that required a 50 round course of fire. I checked with the staff at CMP to verify that it would satisfy the requirement-they had me send them a course description, and told me it was ok. Check with CMP (they have a WONDERFUL staff!) to see if there is any course or match you can easily and conveniently complete (or maybe have already completed?) that would meet the requirement. Also, I believe the CMP will provide to you a list of affiliated clubs in your area that conduct sanctioned matches.

    BTW, I love my CMP Garand!

    Check http://www.odcmp.com/Clubs/List.htm for a list of CMP affiliated clubs. USPSA and Garand Collectors Association are both affiliated.

    I believe that they are very liberal as to what qualifies as a "match." This is from the application form:

    Have participated in a marksmanship activity where
    at least 50 rounds of range firing were completed.
    You must provide a copy of a results bulletin from a
    competition or clinic completed with-in the last five
    years or other proof you fired at least 50 rounds or participated
    in other CMP approved marksmanship activities.
    Providing proof of military or law enforcement service
    or proof of Distinguished, Instructor or Coach status
    will satisfy this requirement. This requirement is waived if
    your proof of age shows you to be at least 60 years of
    age. Proof of marksmanship not required for purchase of
    drill rifles.

    It looks to me like shooting any competition, even IDPA type stuff, qualifies for the shooting requirement. You still have to belong to an affiliated club, but I do not believe that there is any linkage there.

    Lytle Creek is a bit more than 20 miles away, but they have CMP matches every month. You could probably give them a ring for details.

    You might also call the Armory of Orange, who specializes in C&R rifles and has some RKIs on board. I want to say that the Lytle Creek CMP matches are in some way affiliated with them.

    If you're in Santa Clara County, there's a club in San Jose according to that list. Did you check it?

    Don, he's in beautiful downtown Burbank, like where Johnny Carson used to work. That would make it Los Angeles County. He probably lives just north of the Disney studios, off the 210/134.

    The Angeles Range might be the closest of all, but I've never been there, so I can't comment on what they do/don't do there.

    As for afiliated clubs, the California Rifle and Pisol Club (CRPA) is a good one. With membership, they send you "The Firing Line" which covers what's going on in the CA legislature (if you're in need of depressing news).
