a CMP Affiliated Club in
THE OSAGE ORANGE SHARPSHOOTERS???
easiest way for you to get involved with the OOS and Highpower
Rifle Shooting is to come to one of our events. Please
feel free to call one of our club officers for definite information
on match fees and times. Also feel free to ask any questions
that you may have about the event.
If you need
to borrow a rifle for your first couple of matches the club has
a few "loaner" M1 Garands and M1 Carbines. PLEASE be
sure that if you need to use a loaner rifle that you make arrangements
with the Match Director in advance of the event. The number of
"loaner rifles" is limited.
If you have your own qualifying rifle that you want to shoot and the other few needed items, that's great. Come on out, meet the guys, and have a ball learning about Highpower Rifle Competition.
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: Anyone is welcome to come out to Osage Orange events at the Andy Dalton Range and shoot one match as a guest of the Club. It is requested that you join the OOS before shooting your second match at the Andy Dalton range, as use of this facility during related Club events is restricted by the MO Conservation Dept. regulations to members of the Club utilizing the range.
At the Springfield Bench Rest Club's facility, anyone, whether a member of OOS and SBRC or not, is welcome to attend and shoot at any and all Highpower events held .

RIFLES. As stated above, a few "loaner" M1 Garands and M1 Carbines are available for new member or guest use. Be sure to notify the Match Director a couple days before the match that you need a "loaner", so he can make sure that one is available on the day you plan to shoot.
