Mexico Military Surplus Rifle Pistol Shooters or simply called NM
MILSURPS was formed by three members, Rob Summerhill, Ron Duncan, Sr.
and Patrick Hernandez back in 2005 after meeting at a shooting match
in mid-2004 where we competed with our military surplus rifles. What
we discussed at the time was what are these weapons capable of doing
at long distances beyond 200 yards and how accurate can they be at
longer distances. It was decided that we should form a shooting club
where we could get like minded individuals such as ourselves to set
up a competitive shooting club using these weapons at longer ranges.
We now have 25 members in the club that actively shoot with us.
The basic rule we formed for the club is that the weapons we use in the competition must be original configured as-issued surplus military weapons such as the Springfield 1903, Mauser, Mosin-Nagant, Lee-Enfield, SKS, M1 Garand, FN FAL, CETME, Colt 1911 and many others that were issued to ordinary soldier who used these weapons in the various armies in both the past and present. The iron sights must be the original as-issued style used on the weapons with no aftermarket, target or match or micrometer adjustable sights allowed as these were not issued to the ordinary soldier. Scoped ‘sniper ‘rifles are allowed to be used but must be the period as issued scopes and mounts or cloned copies of such, again with no aftermarket type scopes or mounts allowed.
We were able to secure the 4th Sunday of every month with the Albuquerque Shooting Range Park located on the West-side of the city for our matches at the 50 – 500 Meter / 300 – 1,000 Yard Range where we shoot at different types of targets (steel or paper) at various ranges from anywhere 10 meters to 500 meters or 300 yards to 1000 yards depending on the type of shoot we are going to have for that month. We have had quite a few different types of shoots ranging from stationary, pop-up and moving type targets and from different shooting disciplines; off-hand, sitting, knelling and prone supported or un-supported. Some of the different types of shoots we have had are a moving steel round 30 inch target that runs the length of one of the shooting banks at a walking pace at different ranges; Carbine and Pistol combination match; Combination Match of shooting at 200, 300, 385 and 500 meters; .22 LR Military Training Rifle Match; Russo-Finnish Winter War (1940) Match and our yearly favorite match ‘The Guns of August’ in which the shooter uses weapons that were used by the various belligerents during The Great War (WWI).
One of our primary purposes is to promote the safe shooting of all nations’ surplus military rifles, pistols and shotguns as well as learn about the weapons that we use in these matches. At every match we will encourage someone teach the other members about the weapons they have brought especially the history of them like, which nation made them, which wars or battles were they used in, how long were they in service or still in service, etc..
Quite a few of our members are very knowledgeable on most of these type of weapons and are glad to help you learn more about your weapons, how to shoot them accurately, help in repairs and reloading your own cartridges for them.
