M-1 Garand match planned for April 26

The Okanogan Wildlife Council is sponsoring an M-1 Garand Match April 26 at its Lower Rifle Range next to the landfill off of B&O Road.

Registration starts at 8:15 a.m. A safety briefing follows at 8:45 a.m. and firing at 9 a.m.

The match is open to shooters using M-1 Garands, M-1 Carbines, M-1A (M-14), AR-15s, ‘03 and ‘03-A3 Springfield, Model 1917 Enfield and 30-40 Craig Rifles, spokesman Ralph Malone said.

The rifles must be in their military configuration and not “sporterized,” Malone said.

The match is open to anyone, but requires that the Okanogan Wildlife Club have a notarized Civilian Marksmanship Program Eligibility Affidavit on file for each shooter.

“If you have not fired in a Garand Match at the Okanogan Wildlife Council before, we will have the forms, and a notary available during the registration period,” Malone said.
