Band of Brothers match
« on: October 04, 2019, 10:21AM »
Saturday the 12th. Every year this has been a conflict for me. This year, I can shoot it. Anyone else have a Garand or carbine to compete?

I like it. Home early. I broke out the old girl last night. Went to LIPSA, set up a 10" gong just past 100 yards. Hit it first shot. Reloads should be interesting.

So much fun.

If you donít own an M1Garand you owe it to yourself to own one.  Not only it is the most historically important rifle in recent history but also an engineering marvel and a hoot to shoot

What a great time! It looks so much slower on video! LOL! Honestly, the Garand was a rip to shoot. Not bad for the once a year I break her out. Thanks for the video Bob!

Ah bowling pins.   I was there this evening and saw all the divots in the bank and couldn't make sense of why they'd be like that, so many impact spots so close together. I figured there was a class or an Apple seed type event.

Yeah the pins were a bit too close to each other.  We had one shooter who took an entire road with just 3 shots.

There is no way to shoot the m1 Garand fast and hit the small sized targets we were shooting at.  Believe me I tried  :'(
