The Second 2012 Illinois State Muster will be held on 30 September 2012 at the Good Guys Posse Dry Gulch Ranch located near Rockford, Illinois. In the morning we will shoot five stages that will follow the theme: The Springfield Trapdoor Rifle .

We will have lunch and in the afternoon shoot three “Wild Bunch” Stages, bring your 1911’s, pistol caliber lever action rifles and ’97 shotguns.

If you have questions get a hold of me at shamrockgannon@live.com or 815/206-3534
Gun carts will be allowed at this muster because there are no provisions for stacking firearms. Hearing protection and side shields/wrap around safety glasses are required for anyone on the range. SASS safety rules will apply. The muster is shot with a rifle and one pistol. Pistol will be shot “dualist.” Bring a second pistol for one stage. Uniforms not required, but encouraged. Categories based on GAF Battle rifle standards.

Pre-registration isn’t required but appreciated by Mrs. Shamrock so she can determine the amount of food she needs for the noon mess(lunch).

Registration at 0800 – Safety Meeting at 0845 – Muster begins at 0900 – Lunch at 1230 – Wild Bunch Stages at 1300

No way I could possibly make this one. Not sure about Grand Muster, either.

It is done. We will have an after action report from Lt. Col. Gannon soon but I thought I would chime in here. It was so much fun. The Col. outdid himself ain running a fun and safe match.

We had at least four shooters who have never shot a GAF match and two of them were in full uniform for their first GAF match! I'd call that a success unto itself.

Many thanks go to Shamrock for running another fun and safe match. The stages were excellent and the food was great. A good time was had by all. I wouldn't miss one of these events for the world!

Also thanks go to Sgt. Strong for giving us an excellent History lesson on the Springfield Trapdoor prior to the match start. The Sgt. also had  his awesome collection of Trapdoor's on display.
