USAMU mentor match

US Army Marksmanship Unit to Host Unique, First-of-a Kind Mentor Match at ORSA

DATES:  Wednesday, April 30, 2014, and Wednesday, June 4, 2014

TIME: 8am ORSA Clubhouse to register. First Shot 9AM

 Prospective and Experienced Highpower Rifle Shooters will be able to shoot alongside the prestigious US Army Marksmanship Unit, or AMU in a Mentor Match to be held prior to the Big Ed’s Memorial and the NRA Regional Matches. It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced shooter or have never held an AR-15 before and would like to give highpower marksmanship a try.  The AMU will provide a rifle, ammo, and magazines if you don’t have a rifle of your own. The course of fire will be the 50 Shot National Match Course fired with sighters at 200, 300, and 600 yards in a relaxed and congenial environment.  No scores will be turned in – No pressure.  This will be an opportunity for the experienced shooters to hone skills and receive coaching on the finer points of your techniques, and for newer shooters to learn the game and fall in with our highpower club.  Plan on staying most of the day, so pack drinks and a light lunch, and bring weather-appropriate clothing, and eye, and ear protection.  ORSA always requires EYE and EAR PROTECTION on all our ranges.   Also, bring a notebook and pen for taking notes to retain and to study.  Cost is free of charge.  We look forward to seeing you!

Please RSVP to Michael Glasman,, 865-671-2698 and indicate if you will be needing rifle and ammo.  SPACES ARE LIMITED. Please respond as soon as possible if you wish to secure a spot.  In your RSVP response, to make it possible to plan for your maximum benefit, follow the following format:


1. Experience: State your NRA Classification or if you have ever shot an AR-15 highpower rifle competition.  

2. Equipment:  AR-15 with 20 inch barrel, Iron Sights, Cotton Web Sling, or M-1907 Pattern Leather/Synthetic Sling.  If you don’t have rifle and sling, this will be provided by the AMU.   If you compete, and have your own gear, bring it.

3. Duration: Make sure you are able to the entire day.  You will need to score as many shots for your fellow shooters as you fired. There will also be valuable discussion after the match to go over your experience and lessons learned.  Hopefully we will be complete by around 3pm.
