We have a very special American Independence Day tradition here in Arizona: we shoot a rifle match! This rifle match is used as a celebration and a fund raiser, this year for the Phoenix Children's Hospital. Over $2,000 was raised for this charitable cause!
First, let's thank our match hosts, Independence Training:
What's more American than a rifle match on July 4th, you might ask?
InRange's answer to that question? Use an M1 Garand!
So that's just what we, and a select few, opted to do. While most of the participants were using another very American rifle, the AR15, we ran through the 115 degree weather with enbloc clips filled with 30-06 making the venerable M1sing for us on this special holiday.
How'd the old girl do? Stay tuned, because we have 5 stages to show you!
InRange is an online video program dedicated to the study of guns, shooting, gun culture, and history. We dispel the myths, promote the good stuff that hasn't gotten the attention it deserves.
