Announcing the 2016 SAFS
If you have an interest, in high power competition, then this course will serve you well. Upon completion, you will be able to safely enter and compete in any high power match, nationwide. This will be the 27th year we are providing this course. You will receive “hands on” instruction, from volunteer competitor coaches, throughout the weekend. This program is approved by the CMP and you will receive a certificate, from them, upon completion. All lead instructors are either current or past members on the NYS Service Rifle Team and are CMP Distinguished Riflemen.
Many of you are aware that, for 2016, the CMP has reclassified the “Service Rifle,” to now include M-4 configurations, in addition to A-4 configurations. The CMP has, also, included the use of scopes, in competitions, up to 4½ power. This particular course will still be conducted, only on the AR-15 A-2 platform, with as-issued, iron sights. The reason for this is that it is a fundamental course and we want everyone on the same platform, for uniformity in instruction. Our host, The Peconic River Sportsman’s Club, has AR-15 A-2s, for loan. The high power league, which I run, is NRA approved. As the CMP has changed their rules, for 2016, you are invited to participate in our regular league matches, after completing the course, with scoped rifles, if you so choose. If you do so, you are not eligible for an NRA high power classification, as the NRA still requires the use of iron sights, in competition.
The course is open to the first 66 entries received. It usually sells out early; so, register, ASAP. The attached PDF is the registration application.
