September 29, 2012 –
The next NOAAWIVA “NRA Rules” practice high power rifle match of the 2012 season will be held This Saturday Sept 29 at T’s Corner. The NOAAWIVA range is 300 yards due east from Rt. 13 on Chincoteague Road. (Look for a turnoff into the woods on the right.) Adult match fee is $6. Juniors 14 and up may participate if accompanied by parents/guardians. Juniors 16 and under do not pay a match fee.
Non-NOAAWIVA members may participate; our usual range fee is waived for these matches, so all you pay is $6. Bring a friend and introduce him or her to this great sport! Training begins promptly at 12 noon; match begins 1 PM. If you’re unfamiliar with what’s involved in an NRA/CMP match, you MUST attend the training hour before competing.
Rifles must be centerfire types "equipped with metallic sights, should be capable of holding at least 5 rounds of ammunition and should be adapted to rapid reloading...Front sights should be of either the post or aperture type." This includes many sporters as well as ex-military rifles. No riflescopes; iron sights only. The training will explain procedures and positions. Course of fire:
2 sighter rounds, then 10 rds slow fire prone at 100 yards.
10 rds rapid fire prone (70 seconds) at 100 yards.
2 sighters, then 10 rds rapid fire sitting (60 seconds) at 100 yards.
2 sighters, then 10 rds slow fire offhand at 100 yards.
Total: 46 rounds.
Club .223 and 30-06 ammo will be on sale. Bring a scrap of carpet to lie on for prone if you do not have a mat. We will have slings, mags, eye protection, & ear protection for sale. Will be held rain or shine.
This would be a great opportunity to practice for the GARAND MATCH next month. John C Garand match is coming up on us Oct 27. Break out that old M1 and get some practice in!
