You need not be a member of the NRA, the CMP, or the Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club.  The matches are held the second Sunday of the month November through April.  All competitors must have a notarized “Eligibility Affidavit and Liability Agreement” on file at Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club or present at registration.  

Shooters in this match may use As-Issued M1 Garands, As-Issued M1903 Springfields, As-Issued M1 Carbines, As-Issued Model 1917’s, and As-Issued Foreign Military Rifles.  All as-issued foreign military rifles must be manually operated bolt-action or straight-pull rifles.

CMP has added more categories to encourage greater participation.  We will all shoot together, but there will be the following separate classes: 

  1. Garands (this includes M1 Carbines)
  2. Springfields
  3. Vintage Rifles (this includes M1917's and foreign military bolt actions)
  4. Unlimited Garands (match conditioned Garands, NM Match sights,etc.)
  5. Modern Military Rifles (AR's, M1A's, foreign semi-automatic rifles)

The intent is to do less coaching during the match.  So if you are a new shooter, or if you are bringing a friend who is a new shooter, please contact a match director.  With a newly trained "CMP GSM Master Instructor" at the Club a short clinic for new match shooters can be done on the Saturday after the Silhouette Match.  While the full CMP Clinic is about two hours of classroom followed by an hour of dry firing on the range the most important parts of the course in about two hours total.

JC GARAND MATCH COURSE OF FIRE AT LOS ALAMOS WILL BE AT 200 YARDS.

This Match/Competition is open to any eligible competitor.  You need not be a member of the NRA, the CMP, or the Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club. 

Registration at Los Alamos starts at 8:00am followed by range set-up and practice with the match starting at 9:30am. Entry fees for the Los Alamos matches will be $3.00.  The matches are held the second Saturday of the month all year.  

Any firearm that is chambered for the .22 caliber short, long or long rifle rimfire cartridges is eligible for use.  Hot loads, such as “Stingers”, are not permitted and cannot be used at the match.  

Four courses of fire are at varying sizes of steel plate silhouettes at varying distances. Firing is performed from a standing position.  The Stage that the competitor starts with can vary due to the number of shooters and relays. Eye and hearing protection are MANDATORY. 

 

.22 Silhouette Match Course of Fire is over 4 Stages:

  • Chickens - approx. 5 inches across at 40 meters
  • Pigs - approx. 10 inches across at 50 meters
  • Turkeys - approx. 9 inches across at 75 meters
  • Rams - approx. 16 inches across at 100 meters

Each course of fire is two strings of five silhouettes each.  Each string is a 30 second preparation period followed with two minutes for five shots followed by a 30 second break and then a second string of fire.  This occurs at each of the four stages.  After each stage firearms are racked or cased before going down range to reset and paint targets.
