In case you haven't seen it.

If you don't have a M1 or AR-15 they will lend you one for the course. The course also qualifies to buy an M1 from the CMP.

If you are coming from out of town you might be able to stay at Camp Smith. Call now if that's your plan.

They have ones to loan out it seems. Having a rifle is not necessary.

Since it's service rifle it's going to be iron sights too, i believe.

I plan to go to Peekskill this year.

i looked at the page and that pdf. however it says something about fees for loaner rifles or something along those lines. its not very clear.

are you able to use a 16" carbine or does it have to be a 20inch? how much is it for loaners, and can you bring your own ammo if you borrow?

There is no fee for a loaner rifle but you cannot use you own ammo. You must purchase ammo from them.

You need to ask about whether you can use a 16" rifle. I think you can but I'm not positive.


RIFLES USED FOR THE SAFS AND FOR LOAN

• This training is limited to the U.S. Service Rifles, M1, M14 (M1A), M16 (AR-15) or their
commercial equivalents. Service Grade M1 rifles are available for loan to students at no charge.
A limited number of AR-15s will be available for loan with priority given to juniors and ladies.

• Students borrowing rifles are required to purchase caliber .30 M2 ball or .223 ammunition which
will be sold for $0.20 a round or $10.00 for 50 rounds. No other ammunition will be fired from
borrowed rifles. Students are encouraged to bring their own service rifles both days.

• Personal firearms must not be brought into the classroom. Personal rifles should be brought to
the afternoon dry fire training.

You would probably be better off using one of the loaner rifles.

This training is money well spent. You will be instructed by some of the best service rifle shooters in the country.

Where is this place? How close is it in relation to say... Albany?
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 5:16:45 AM EST
Camp Smith is in northern Westchester County approx 90 miles south of Albany. You may be able to stay over if there is still room available. You would to contact them soon if your thinking about doing that. All the contact info is in the application.

I went to the course at Camp Smith last year and it was well worth the travel and early mornings. The NYSHPR guys run a good show.

My only disappointment was that the 2nd day we shot from the 200 yd. line and not 300.

Highly recommended.
Link Posted: 3/16/2005 9:02:17 AM EST
I'm really interested in doing this, but not sure with the M1 or the AR. I'd love to have some introduction to high-power and instruction.

I shoot my AR more though, and I'd be coming up there from NYC so obviously couldn't bring my own. Do the loaner ARs run out quick since they say they prefer to lend them to women etc?
