Default Shout out to CMP Clinic

This Sunday I attended my first formal training/clinic for rifles at Ojai Valley Gun Club, the Civilian Marksmanship Program M1 Garand clinic.

It was a gorgeous day, I spent the first half in the target pits, second half shooting, and this was my first and only exposure to the M1 Garand, and the 30-06 AND 200 yards shooting. I managed to take the 2nd highest score, so I may be biassed but I had a great time.

We learned how to use the GI web sling, apparently using the USMC method of sling use for prone, and learned how to do off-hand target shooting using bone structure rather than muscle to hold and steady positions.

$35 bucks let me borrow a club rifle, all of my ammunition, instruction and the results get sent in to CMP (and since I'm about to become a member at OVGC) apparently gets me eligible to buy a Garand from the CMP. If you are a member of the CRPA this is also an affiliate of the CMP and gets you in to purchase.

12 shooters, 4 instructors, and lots of the guys brought up their own Garands some of them brand new from CMP, I think everybody had a great time.

I highly recommend this to anybody who hasn't yet bruised up their collar bone with a 10-pound WWII era service rifle shooting the venerable 30-06!
