NM MILSURPS http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/vie...p?f=10&t=24322
August Shoot (August 24,2008) will be on the theme of "Guns of August" ... Rifles of the First World War (WWI). This will be a 500 meter shoot at a human torso steel target.
The weapons that we would like to see there will be of original WWI configuration and calibers but if you do not have one of these any other legitamate military surplus rifle may be used. I know not everyone has a weapon from the Great War. Points will be based upon the number of hits on the target and type of weapon used. We will be shooting from the prone, sitting or standing position as either an Allied or Central Power soldier and as a team.
Make you plans now to attend and shoot in this "Guns of August" match.

This listing is of the Main Battle Rifles as used by each of the major participants of The Great War ... This list does not include any of the secondary weapons used. I also have included the dates that each country declared war.
