I just called in and reserved my barracks bed for August 6-8 (6143366214 if anyone needs to do so...reservations just opened up this morning at 8am, so there should still be plenty of openings.)

I’m registered for Vintage/Springfield/Garand/M1A and Vintage Sniper...no Modern Military because I figure I’d definitely be ‘out-gunned’ and I’m not really caring enough at this point to purpose build a <7.5lb free-float AR just to meet the ever changing rules of the cucks at CMP.

I’m still really put off by their decision to cancel last years events, but what can we do, I guess? I’ve never been to a large scale CMP match, so it’ll be interesting to see what it’s like if nothing else.

I’m admittedly kind of ‘forcing’ myself to go...I lost a lot of motivation/momentum last year. I was ready to rock with a good service rifle (flat top) upper from White Oak Armory that @dw617 steered me toward as well as a full basic/budget gear setup, and LOTS of practice with my iron sight NM AR going into the season. I’ve since built myself another lower with a weighted A2 stock and a Geisselle Hi-Speed NM set at precisely 4.5lbs break, but I haven’t even sighted it in with the budget Helos BTR 4.5x yet.

For some reason this year I barely even want to go to the range. I’m just hoping I get out of this slump soon and start getting out on the firing line again so I don’t embarrass myself when it comes time to compete. I do luckily have some ‘local(ish)’ High Power matches at my range out here in Indiana with a few guys that frequent Camp Perry, so hopefully that will be enough to at least get me ready...the shooters aren’t quite to the level of OCSA CMP competitors (Pembroke, MA), but they’re in the ball park and somewhat challenging to compete against.

So is anyone else gearing up to head to Camp Perry this year? What matches are you planning on competing in? Where are you planning on staying? Most importantly, what are you doing to get ready?

Good luck and I hope you have fun, I will be back to finish getting my points with bullseye pistol, it just wont be this year.

The CMP has gone pretty retarded with all this china flu crap.

The Update You’ve Been Waiting For: CMP’S 2021 National Matches

In summary:
- No First Shot Ceremony
- Socially-distanced check-in, with limited numbers in the building
- Squadding at half-capacity with competitors placed every-other firing point
- No Awards Ceremony

IMO the awards ceremony is the best part.

Holy mackerel...that’s a lot of baggage. I was wondering why the relays were selling out so fast!

I was pretty hesitant to even sign up due to the nonsensical garbage they pulled last year. I’m just lucky I held off signing up because I had a funny feeling they were going to pull the matches.

Thank you for the link and the well-wishes. I’ll update here with any progress/equipment updates for feedback from those of you that have been there before.

I'll be there from Saturday 31JUL leaving Sunday 8AUG. Staying off base. GF is coming with me and she'll be shooting too.

Monday Presidents 100
Tuesday NTI
Wednesday Hearst Doubles
Thursday, day off
Friday, hoping to shoot rattle battle with my club. Also signed up for one of the games matches later in the day.
Saturday, 2 Games matches. For the Games I'm bringing my Garand, 03A3 and Colt SP1.

@76Too, why aren't you shooting the high power matches earlier in the week?

Prep, shoot as much as you can locally. Take good notes and show up to perry with good dope. Make sure you have a good cart too. You do not want to be hauling a days worth of stuff on your back.

Hopefully this covid BS winds down by July/August.

@76Too, why aren't you shooting the high power matches earlier...

Mainly lack of confidence/experience...I don’t feel like I’m anywhere near ready to play with you and the big boys!

I haven’t shot a single match since last summer because life has thrown me a few curve balls (as it did to everyone last year). I’m trying to put a boot in my own ass, but my leg doesn’t bend that way! Hopefully I get out of this funk here soon and get back on the horse.

I REALLY need some trigger time behing the WOA service rifle flat top with the Helos because I’m barely proficient with ANY optic other than an ACOG. I’m still using 24gr of Varget behind 77gr HPBT Nosler CC’s and they seem to be doing the trick, so thank you for the recipe!

I’m going to try and get out to my club range in the next few weeks and do some sighting in/practice of the Helos at 200 and 300. If it goes well and there’s still a few spots left at Perry for the EIC match, I’ll certainly consider signing up at that point and just make it a ‘day trip’...drive up the night prior and stay in my VW Vanagon at a campground or rest area...shoot the match the next morning and drive home (3.5hrs for me, so not too bad).

IDK, I mean get out there and have fun. If you do come out earlier in the week, shoot the P100 and the NTI. You can use the P100 as a practice run for the NTI. Not just for shooting, you'll see how the pits and relays work too.

P100 is a 30 round course of fire: 10 rounds standing @ 200; 10 round rapid fire prone string @ 300; 10 round slow fire string @ 600. No sitting .

NTI is the normal 50 round national match course. 10 standing / 10 rapid sitting @ 200, 10 rapid prone @ 3, 20 slow fire @ 600.

knock that shit off, shut up and shoot and you better post good scores.... OCSA trained you well.
Some will be living vicariously through you!

Eat a F ucking Crayon and get out there!
223/24g varget = any bullet 50-77 gns should do better than we can hold.
