    The class will start at 9:00 AM, Sign in starts at 8:30 AM. Clinic participants will need to bring a lunch and whatever drinks they desire. We will not have time to break for lunch and go into town to get anything. All participants, while shooting and not shooting, will be required to wear eye and hearing protection when on the range. Bring a ground cloth, (i.e.: Tarp, blanket, quilt or shooting mat).


    Use of the M1 rifles and ammunition will be included in the Clinic Fee of $45.00. Participants under 18 years old pay $10.00 for Junior membership in the gun club but they will not be eligible to purchase the M1 Rifle. All participants should apply by US Mail, we will phone you to confirm your application. People showing up at the range may participate, if there is range space available.



    NOTICE: We will accept cancellations if made 7 days before the Clinic Date. Any participant that does not show the day of the event (without prior notice as indicated) forfeits the Clinic Fee.


    Hope to see you at the range,

    Y'all sign up, I'll force the Leutnant zur See to demonstrate how to properly use the sling, position shooting, etc. Not that he'll mind. "Will work for ammunition for the Rifle, Caliber .30, M1" is one of his mottos. :rolleyes:

    He's done this for quite a while.

    He can even teach:

    And of course he's always happy to actually do something besides carry the rifle around all day, eat with it, sleep with it. He is more than happy to have any opportunity to actually fire the M1:
