Shoot your M1 Rifle at Camp Perry 2012 :
For 2012 the GCA will again sponsor members shooting their M1 rifles at the National Rifle Matches at Camp Perry (Port Clinton) Ohio.
It is the goal of the GCA Board of Directors to have more people who already have some kind of a zero for their M1 rifles to shoot them as members of the GCA teams in the CMP team matches at Camp Perry this year.
Jim Adell has put together an article regarding the 2012 event.
