Many of you may have vintage military firearms that you have collected, or may have been handed down from family. Our goal is to provide an outlet for you to share them with others, and to compete with them in a friendly, low stress atmosphere. We have a good time, and our regular competitors are a good group of guys, with an occasional lady or two. These matches give club members a chance to get together, as well as improve our shooting skills by shooting at bullseye and military silhouette staged multiple targets.

We are affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program. If you have any interest in the M1 Garand, or M1 Carbine, there is no better place to purchase one than through CMP. The people at the CMP are a joy to deal with. Even though they advertise “AS IS,” if you receive a rifle that has issues, they always make good on them. The club can fulfill the affiliate and marksmanship requirements for hassle-free purchase. Feel free to contact me for any questions regarding the CMP, as I am the CMP contact for DSA.

We have four classes of rifles that we currently shoot. [See below for new classes just added!] They are in Military, or National Match configuration, we try to emphasize “Iron Sights” to keep the playing field level.
You may have something not mentioned, but feel free to contact us, we’ll see if we can fit you in.
