    Last one for the year. They will loan you a M1 rifle, shooting matt and
    spotting scope. And sell you the ball ammo for the match. Usually lots
    of first time shooters. The experienced shooters help coach the new
    shooters. Nice friendly group.:) If you have never shot a M-1 or a
    Highpower Match you need to take the class the night before.:s0019:

    Do you have to be a member of DRRC? Can you bring your own Garand and ammo? Does it have to be 30-06? Are red dots allowed?

    You do not have to be a member. Bring your own rifle and ammo.
    Some will be shooting ARs. You can shoot any centerfire caliber. The
    rifle needs to be able to reload with stripper clip or magazine change
    to shoot the rapid fire strings.
    Never seen a red dot on a M1. But there is a lot I've never seen. They do not
    turn away anyone. Hard to adjust the red dot like 1/2 min. left? Maybe just
    hold left, right, etc. Learn how to use a sling in sitting and prone. The point
    is to get out and shoot. If you need a red dot to shoot so be it.:D
