Outdoorsmen to have Pearl Harbor match

VW County Outdoorsmen information

The Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Association will be hosting its annual Pearl Harbor Commemorative Match, which is a CMP-sanctioned match, to remember America’s heroes, both past and present.

The match will be held Saturday, December 6, at the Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Club, 9065 Ringwald Road. The safety briefing will be held at 9:30 a.m. and the match will start at 10 that morning.

For area residents who have wanted to shoot an M-1 Garand rifle, this is the match to attend. Those who shoot in the match will be eligible to purchase an M-1 Garand rifle from the CMP.

For those who do not have a rifle, the club has M-1 rifles to loan out to the public to use in this match; however, any military rifle may be used. The cost to participate is $3, which is a target fee. For those who need to purchase ammo, the club has 30.06 ammo at $20 for 40 rounds.

For those who have never participated in a match, there will be a clinic starting at 11 a.m., which will include how an M-1 operates and match protocols.

The club also has a National Match AR-15 for those who might want to try it out.

For more information, check out the club’s website at, or call 419.203.5234.
