    Mac, I can guarantee you wouldn’t be turned away. Most of us are there to have fun and get some trigger time.

    Yeah, the AR platform is over 50 years old since it was developed in the late 50's.

    The match I do monthly is called a Military combined match. Match 1 is 22lr trainers, Match 2 Is military bolt action rifles and match 3, is modern military rifles which is mainly all guys shooting AR-15s. The winner last weekend with his AR group was all in the X ring and it measured .730 on 10 shots. He shot a 200 -17x I believe for his score using a Rock River off the shelf rifle with hand loads. That was impressive. Sometimes they will do special matches for M1s or other things. Most of they guys I have met just want to share the sport and if your gun is correct era will let you shoot. Some clubs even offer loaner rifles at matches to help folks get started.

    Just carve out the time for next month. Mark it on the calendar. Make it known you will be unavailable during that time.

    That's what I did for the first few monthly matches at OKCGC, now it's a regular thing. Mrs will say something like ' Oh, that's the day of the match. We'll need to reschedule....'

    I really do enjoy the match. A gathering of like-minded people just out to have a good time.
