I shot a few High Power matches just out of high school in the early 70's there. How many firing points do they have, I can't remember. All I remember is the excitement of shooting a match with a service rifle after competing in high school with a .22. Have any pictures of the ranges these days?

When we shot there there wasn't any over head structures. You were at the mercy of the weather. I remember one time a tornado went through during a match. that was fun, not. I was shooting with Tom Kiefer and William Showacre, Tom Connelly and a few others from Anne Arundel Fish and Game at the time. We shot Garands, though I drooled over the M1A's. Couldn't afford one then. Guess it's been about 40 years almost now.
