I have an M1, empty chamber flag, sling, and am working on getting a spotting scope and ammo of course. I'm only 18 so money is a little tight but I might just make due with binoculars or something for the time being, but is that allowed? Thanks alot everyone!
Feel free to come out to the matches. There will be plenty of folks ready to help you out. If you cannot get zeros, before you come out, feel free to use the different match stages to get that data.
We like to encourage new competitors. We are all continuously learning more about the sport.
Regarding equipment we do not mandate jackets or gloves or mats. Feel free to send me a PM if you have questions.
