2018 59th Annual High Desert Rifle Matches at MCAGCC Twentynine Palms

The following message is from Jeff Lovat, the event coordinator. This is not an SMGC event. The information and match programs are being provided here for convenience. All official and up-to-date information should be obtained from the event coordinator.

The matches are a go and the Marines want A LOT of shooters there and besides us civilians they are recruiting more Marines to actively shoot it.

Come shoot for a day, or two days, or three days or all four days. And enjoy the thrill of being on an active Marine Corps Base and who knows what you will see and hear. Tanks on the move, Amtracs crawling along, the sweet sound of machine guns firing and bombs being dropped or shot out of cannon’s….

Remember, free camping behind the 600 yard line berms and FREE PIT SERVICE included.
$5 BBQ provided by the Marines after the matches.

To the shooters who sign up I will send directions how to get on base, a detailed map how to get to the base, and exact directions to get you to the rifle and pistol ranges.

Feel free to forward any and all of this to other shooters.

This is the tweaked Version 5 92718 match program.
It supersedes all prior programs.

QUESTIONS most asked already and the answers:

  • Is there 1000 yard practice Wednesday November 28?
