JOE MANN Commemorative Shoot.

November 25, 2023

Red Cliffs Rifle & Pistol Range D-4

Pfc. Joe Mann was a paratrooper in the 502nd Parachute infantry, 101st Airborne Division who jumped into Best, Netherlands in mid September of 1944.  His Company (H) was deployed to hold a bridge and road in preparation for the (failed) British planned "Operation Market Garden".  Joe single handedly destroyed an enemy emplacement and rained fire on German troops with his M1 rifle despite being wounded 5 times from an exposed position.  Even though gravely wounded, 22 year old Mann insisted on serving guard duty that evening.  The next morning, during a counter attack, a German grenade was thrown in his pit. Unable to get out Pfc. Mann smothered the blast with his body saving his brother troops.  For this action he received 5 purple hearts and the Medal of Honor.

This shoot is for M1 rifles only.  No optics. All steel.  Best time.

From a sandbagged bunker you will engage 4 steel plates at roughly 140 yards.  No misses should require only 1 reload so accuracy pays off!  Targets will be engaged left to right only and repeated 4 times for minimum of 16 shots.

First run is your timed run, but if time permits you can run more just for fun. Cost is $10.00.  We will run starting at 10am till close.
