Vintage Rifle Match September 4, 2009
The Alaska Rifle Club will hold the 6^th annual Craig Parker Vintage
Rifle Match on Saturday, September 4 at the Birchwood "B" range. Sign up
will be 10 AM. The Match will start a 10:30am Match fee will be $20.00.
*Rifle model and caliber must have been in use before 1945.* According
to Craig: "The guns allowed are any guns that were in production in 1945
or the civilian equivalent. Bring your old gun and shoot it. Tell the
folks that period dress is encouraged." If you have any more questions
email Craig Parker at: <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> To keep in the
spirit of the vintage rifle we will discourage use of target type
rifles, specifically rifles such as Model 70 Winchester. So bring out
your old M-1, lever rifle, Mauser, or the "Safe Queen".
There will be two classes of rifles:
1. Vintage Rifles: Iron sights. Shooting coats allowed, no optical sights.
2. Vintage Sniper Rifles. 1903A4, M1C, M1D etc. Rifles used as sniper
rifles with the period correct optical sight (no modern target scopes).
Remember you have to reload for the rapid fire.
Craig Parker has the final say on what rifles are allowed.
The course of fire is 40 shot plus sighters on the 5V target. We will
be shooting ten shots at each position for a total of 40 rounds for
record. The match will be run as follows. First position will be prone
slow fire where the competitor will get two sighters prior to the ten
rounds from that position for record. Second, without leaving the line
the next string will be prone rapid fire with ten rounds in 70 seconds
from a standing start. Third, will be sitting rapid fire with ten rounds
in 60 seconds. *Rapid fire stages include a reload so bring stripper
clips or 2 magazines. * Fourth will be ten rounds of standing slow fire.
A traveling trophy donated by Craig Parker will be awarded to the winner
and all participants will be invited to The Pizza Man in Eagle River
after the match. When checking targets be careful because your score
card will be the target.
Hope for good weather and come on out for the Vintage Rifle Match.
