TALLADEGA, Ala.-(Ammoland.com)- The Annual John C. Garand D-Day Anniversary event will be held June 8-10, 2018, at the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama. The event will honor the Allied Forces landing at Normandy Beach in France back in 1944 through a series of vintage rifle and pistol competition.

A Service Rifle EIC and .22 Rimfire Pistol EIC Match will kick off the first day of competition, followed by a day of M1 Garand rifle and Carbine events and a cookout on Saturday. The weekend will close out with a Vintage Sniper match on Sunday.

For shotgun enthusiasts, the facility also contains a trap field, two 5-stand fields and a 15-station sporting clays field with automated trap machines, all open for use throughout the weekend, though not directly involved with the D-Day events.

The 500-acre Talladega Marksmanship Park is loaded with a 600-yard rifle range, a 100-yard multi-purpose range and a 50-yard pistol range, each equipped with Kongsberg electronic targets and scoring monitors that allow shooters on the firing line to review shots in a matter of seconds.

The intricate electronic targets have the ability to be reused, so there is no pit duty required at Talladega. For even more convenience, competitors unable to transport their equipment through the hilly terrain of Talladega Marksmanship Park will be provided with transportation to and from the ranges. All firing lines are covered, so competitor and guests will stay dry and in the shade throughout the matches.

Talladega Marksmanship Park is crowned by 13,000 square feet of the Park Club House overlooking Alabama’s mountain views. Inside is the CMP Pro Shop, guests are given the opportunity to purchase firearms, ammunition and other shooting supplies, as well as CMP memorabilia. Big TV screens located throughout the Club House display shots fired on the John C. Garand Range (600 yd range) throughout the day.

    1. Pictures don’t quite convey how fantastic this range/facility is. I have been able to attend each “D-day” match since it opened in 2015 and hope to do so for several more years. My physical abilities do not allow me to make use of all the options available; they are numerous. I can assure you any visit to this range will be memorable.

      Respectfully for the event this match commemorates,
