This match is a lot of fun and in a laid back atmosphere. This is a great way to get introduced to the high-power rifle hobby. John Ryan puts the course on and he is a really great person to learn from and run this program. Come on out and have a blast.

My first real match.

Range was a nice facility, grass in front of the benches, 100 yards with a berm behind the targets. Windy, located near the Dixon Airport.

John gave a safety briefing followed by a review of the course of fire, with a demonstration on the positions and the loading sequences. We shot in 2 relays, the group was split between experienced and new to service rifle matches. The experienced group shot first, I was able to watch and pick up some tips. The second group scored and changed targets for the first relay.

Then the less experienced took the line, shooting sighters (not scored) for 5 minutes, any position. The experienced relay offered tips, and called shot locations.
Then Offhand. 10 shots slow fire. John loaned me a single load device for my Garand, made single loading much easier. received feedback during shooting on where the shots were hitting. Challenging in getting the sights lined up and repeating it every time.

Then rapid fire sitting. Loaded 2 rounds, with 8 in the second clip as reload required. My first time shooting sitting, difficult to get elbows and knees all lined up and with good contact. My next position to practice - and many ranges don't allow sitting or prone.

Then rapid fire prone - load 2, then reload with 8. Rapid fire is challenging, but the pressure helps keep you focused on target.

Then 20 single loaded, slow fire prone. The target is further reduced to simulate 300 yards. I did terrible. First shots were ok, looked in spotting scope which proceeded to fall over in the grass (cheap little Konus tripod). I then proceeded to shoot the rest of the shots ok vertical, but all on the right side of the target. Probably was not a good idea to take off my jacket at start of this stage. Started to definitely feel the pounding on my shoulder.

All in all, I had a great time. Everyone was friendly, and the experienced guys were really helpful on suggestions and feedback.

Additional info - There were 12 shooters, 2 Garands, others were shooting a variety of .223 and .308s. Wearing boots definitely helped me in the offhand.
