Perry Bound???

With the price of gas slowly rising to 5 bucks a gallon, how many guys are driving to Camp Perry? I have driven from California for the past 4 years but I am having second thoughts and this may well be my last year. Any comments?

Re: Perry Bound???

Are you driving out for the National Matches, or just to go to the store?

I have fired in 4 matches for the past 5 years. Commerical row is fun, too. But the price of gas is making me re-consider this trip.

Re: Perry Bound???

I'm very lucky (but not as lucky as JAS) as I only live 138 miles from the North Store and try to make it up there a lease 4 times a year. I do order ammo from the e-store now at 18 bucks to ship, and have received two very nice carbines by mail.

But my view is if you can swing it, make the trip. It's probably for your own good health if you enjoy it.....

Re: Perry Bound???

I may get there once during the matches , I too enjoy commercial row and a stop by the store . Since my back injury I don't compete anymore but I did love the Garand match .
With escalating costs , I will more than likely stay local and start using up a few cases of surplus eight m/m and 7.62 Russian rimmed .

Re: Perry Bound???

I'll be attending The Nationals for the 5th time. I'm only 2 1/2 hours away in Michigan so I guess that I am lucky? I do a bit of shopping too and shoot the CMP Games along with the M1's for Vets Team. This year I've added the Hearst Doubles to the adjenda and might sign up for the NTI when I get there. Gas ain't cheap but staying a week on base shooting with good friends, it's still worth the price! Just ask the Supreme Court!

We are thinking about grilling some hamburgs and hot dogs the night before the matches. That and the pop is on me. Might be fun to meet some of you guys.

Re: Perry Bound???

I'll arrive at Camp Perry Monday afternoon of CMP Week and will be lodged somewhere in the huts. Look for the Linden Sportsmen Club flag and the M1's for Vets team. Look forward to meeting you.
