Pearl Harbor Commemorative Match

The Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Association will be hosting its annual Pearl Harbor Commemorative Match to remember our heroes both past and present. This match will be held on December 3, at the Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Club located at 9093 Ringwald Road. The safety briefing will be held at 9:00A.M. and the match will start at 9:45A.M. If you ever wanted to shoot an M-1 Garand, this is the match to attend. Once you shoot in the match, you will be eligible to purchase an M-1 from the CMP. If you do not have a rifle, the club has M-1 rifles to loan out to the public to use in this match. However, any military rifle may be used. The cost to participate is $5.00, which is the target fee. If you need to purchase ammo, the club has 30.06 ammo at $23.00 for thirty-five rounds.
If you have never participated in a match, there will be a clinic starting at 9:00A.M. The clinic will include how an M-1 operates as well as match protocols. The club also has a National Match AR 15 for participants who might wish to try it out.
