MSGO/Magnolia R&P Club - FUN SHOOT - Camp McCain!!

Ralph Hall, a friend from the Magnolia R&P Club, and I have been working on an opportunity to shoot the official US Army pop-up rifle qualification range located at Camp McCain. Camp McCain is just south of Grenada off I-55. Both Ralph and I have spoken with the range officer from Camp McCain and they have consented to let us have the range on Saturday, September 18th. There is a $350 cost associated with use of the range. We would have the range ALL day.

I have notified them that we would like to shoot military service weapons such as the AR-15, Garand, M1 Carbine, M1903, and M1917. I am not sure if they are going to permit anything besides the ARs, but we are giving it a try.

Due to the cost involved in securing the range, it would be helpful to know just what the interest is for such an outing. The more the interest - the less the cost per person. Please give me some feedback regarding interest. I would love to see 20+ shooters involved.

This will be FUN – I guarantee it!! You will engage pop-up silhouette targets at ranges from 25M to 300M. Since we will have the range ALL day, you will surely have the opportunity to shoot as much as you desire!! Do not worry if you do not have a "suitable" rifle. There will be extra ARs there and if they permit, extra Garands, M1 Carbines, 1903s, and M1917. For those of you who have not shot a military qualification course, this will give you an opportunity to see what is involved.

Are you FRIGGIN' CRAZY....? HELL YEAH, count me in ! ! !

I don't care if we can only shoot BB guns, getting to shoot on a US Military range is something you DON'T pass up.............

OK folks.... This is the time you DON'T "sit on the fence", get wishy-washy, "oh, I don't know", will my wife let me?.... or you will MISS OUT ! ! ! This is a ONE-TIME chance (at least for now).

You don't have to be a Hi-Power shooter to ENJOY this opportunity. This is NOT a match.... This will be JUST PLAIN FUN....................................

Just bring ammo if you don't have any of the mentioned firearms. I and other are HAPPY to SHARE. Heck, I will even share some of my ammo.....

NOTE: I don't know what will be involved, but I sure look forward to finding out..................

................ Hmmm, no carbines? The little guys like to play too
, not that I have one...yet.
I would think that if the range area is "cleared" for 30-06, that the "Little 30 Carbine" should not be a problem. However, Captain must verify with the Range Master......................

.................. However, we will publish the protocol after our site visit.
When is the Site Visit....? I would like to attend if possible............

I too think Option #1 is best for our first trip there. With all the traveling and fees, the more shooting the better. We can use that trip to scout/feel out more options for future trips.

Shoe, borrowing an AR will NOT be a problem.
