Question???
What kind of info will be covered. Will a shooter with prior military experience (USMC Expert X 4 yrs) benefit from the class??? I have shot at MRPC many times for USPSA and think it is a great club.

Thanks

I don't know what will be covered, as I have never attended one. I am a self taught highpower shooter.

I suspect that if you qualified expert in the Marines several times, then you know how to use a sling, how to run targets, how to assume a stable prone, standing, sitting, and kneeling position, how to zero your rifle, and how to adjust your sights for windage and elevation, which is most of what I think will be covered.

I was going to volunteer as an instructor, but I'll be at Camp Perry at the state service rifle championship.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been looking for a Garand Clinic on this side of the state.

IIRC Garand clinics are about 5 or 6 hours long and cover basic safety, operation of the Garand, and an opportunity to fire 50-60 rounds. Quick way to fufill the requirements of buying from the CMP.

This is actually a service rifle clinic. Same thing you have described as a Garand Clinic, but the emphasis is on today's service rifle. Still, if you want to bring a Garand or M14 clone, you are welcome.

If someone there can get my oprod off my M1A, I'd show up for that reason alone.

Does your rifle work? Then shoot it!

I bet someone there knows how to get that off.

Oh, it works alright. I just can't stand the fact I can't break the rifle down far enough to make simple repairs or replacements. Especially with all the hubub about M1A's needing replacements with USGI parts.
