Port Clinton, OH -(AmmoLand.com)- The John C. Garand D-Day Anniversary Match is a series of rifle, pistol and shotgun events, scheduled to commemorate the anniversary of the Allied Forces landing at Normandy Beach in France back in 1944.
An EIC Service Rifle Match, .22 Rimfire Pistol Match and a Service Pistol EIC Match are just a few of the events featured during the weekend. For shotgun enthusiasts, a sporting clay field and 5-stand field is also open for use at Talladega Marksmanship Park.
The 500-acre CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park is one of the most advanced outdoor facilities in the world. Boasting the latest technological advances in the realm of marksmanship, it is a must-see destination for firearm supporters across the country. The park is open to the public, year round, offering many opportunities to marksmen of all ages.
The facility includes a 600-yard rifle range, a 100-yard multi-purpose range and a 50-yard pistol range, equipped with Kongsberg electronic targets and scoring monitors that allow shooters on the firing line to review shots in a matter of seconds. Since the intricate targets have the ability to be reused, there is no pit duty required at Talladega.
Talladega Marksmanship Park also contains 15 action pistol bays and a trap field with a 5-stand overlay and a 15-station sporting clay field with automated trap machines. Competitors unable to transport their equipment through the hilly terrain of Talladega Marksmanship Park will be provided with transportation to and from ranges.
