    I hope this article doesn't draw negative attention to their program.

    I wish i could pull up some local paper articles for you, but they are long gone off the internet.

    I read a story where a young girl from Dahlonega had beaten a record or something like that with her rifle. And White County HS has a good shotgunning team.

    Theres a USMC Gunny that coaches a Navy JROTC marksman team at Lithonia HS. I saw where they competed at Fort Benning last year.

    actually it is more common than I thought. check out the Civilian Marksmanship Program, established by Congress. You can also buy surplus rifles from them, if you are a member of a shooting club.

    I shot varsity rifle team for my school back in high school.

    I've been to Cedar Shoal for a Raider competition...they have a really nice course.

    Most of the JROTC programs [at least in the Atlanta/north metro/suburbs] have a rifle team.

    I think it is absolutely fantastic that such programs exist. However, I can't believe the left-wingers haven't put the smack-down on it.

    COMPLETELY OFF TOPIC but since I started this thread, I can hi-jack it. I was in Clyde yesterday and they were unloading and checking in a shipment of stuff. Included in this shipment was a huge $8,000 Barrett. Holy Crap!!! I don't know the first thing about these weapons but dang it looked mean.

    Also noticed used Glocks were $100 off. They had a few second gen G22s and G17s and maybe some others for $349-399 minus $100. They had some wear but I am sure would make a great first or backup weapon for the cash strapped. Used Sigs were $50, prices varied. Again, they had some wear and were not CPOs. At this point I had a new G21SF in my hand. I had been thinking of selling/trading my second gen G22 to get one. After seeing those prices I figured out really quickly that was not going to be an option. My G22 is in much better condition and has new Trijs but I still would never get enough to be worth the difference. It will remain a keeper for now.

    All rifle team mean for my JROTC was taking some beat-up demilled garands around the parking lot and doing exhibition drill.

    I would have killed to do something like this in JROTC.

    We got the "rifle team" ribbon for participation on it. Drill team for us didn't involve guns.

    Of course I was in Air Force JROTC, I'm guessing you were in Army JROTC?

    I think that just absolutely rocks!

    Rifle teams in HS. Wow... :woohoo:


    And speaking of hijacking a thread... :offtopic:


    If people who belong to a "gun club" can buy from the CMP, what would it take to get GCO certified as a "gun club" allowing said purchases?



    Some of those surplus beauties are really sweet.....!


    :wink:
