Hope to see you at the range,

Doug Bowser

Y'all should make this one if you can! Even if you know the "Rifle, Cal. .30, M1" pretty well, you can learn something from Papa Doug. And the companionship of fellow Riflemen is always worth the trip to SW Gun Club for these events!

If I’m not out of town for work that weekend, I’ll be there. Will be my second time at this event. The first one was very instructional. Was also my first hands on experience with the M1 rifle. I didn’t shoot very well that day, but I’ve had some practice since and hope to do better this time around. The clubs rifles are also very nice and most of them are very accurate.

Hope y'all can make it, we've had to cancel the last few for lack of interest.

Still waiting to see how many sign up I guess. But the young Meister will probably show up with me if the clinic makes.

Doug dated the Clinic post for Dec 9. I have few things happening, but plan on sending in my sign up.
Enjoyed the last one, looking forward to this.

Forwarded the announcement to BayouShooter to see if we can get some LA folks to attend. The last clinic had to be cancelled due to lack of interest.

How long does the class usually last? 9:00-5:00?
The last one went from about 8:30 - 12. Depends on the number of participants. We only had 6 shooters at the last one, and more than enough club M1’s to go around.

Should we bring our own or do you prefer to use the clubs?
You may bring your own with safe ammunition. Generally speaking, "unsafe" ammunition would be the Korean stuff, which frankly haven't seen in a while, or if you're shooting commercial hunting .30-06 ammunition for which your M1 is not designed. If you have any questions ask and we will examine what you have. Douglas will render expert advice.

Sent in my application and fee today. Looking forward to this event. Hate I'm going to miss the Trap Shoot this Saturday, but I'll make it up at the M1 Match.
