INTRO TO CMP SATURDAY APRIL 15, 2017 8:00AM
If you don’t own a qualifying rifle , NSSA has two Bushmaster XM-15 E2S A2 with 20” barrels available for match use, free of charge.
The club also has magazines, slings, empty-chamber indicators, and a ground mat that can be used during the matches. This is an excellent way to give the sport a try for just the cost of ammunition. (Note: Only factory ammunition can be used with the club rifles—no reloads.)

Place: Rifle range at NSSA, 325 Mt Pleasant Road, Warrendale, PA.
Course of fire, 2 stages:
Stage 1: 16 rounds slow fire, 16 minutes, any position, at 200 yards. Proceeded by 3-minute sight-in, up to 5 rounds. Preferred rifle 8mm K98, but any period bolt rifle acceptable. Iron sights only. This replicates the German side.

Again, proceeded by 3-minute sight-in, up to 5 rounds (slow fire). 24 rounds in 3 eight-round clips, one clip in each position. No loading of clips until in next position. This simulates the American side.

- Period military uniforms welcomed.
- Slings, mats and spotting scopes acceptable on all positions.

What to bring: an M1 Garand with 30 rounds and 3 clips, and a military bolt rifle with 20 rounds. Spotting scope, shooting mat, and sling. Check the weather and dress accordingly.
Sight-In Day is cancelled for Sunday, November 20th due to impending high winds (above 25 MPH) and wind-chill factors in the low 20’s. The rifle range will be open for normal activity.
Sorry for any inconvenience. Be sure to visit the website before heading out to next weekend’s Sight-In Days, to check for any unexpected cancellations.
Significant improvements have been made on the Rifle Range. Trees on both sides of the range have been cut back, which will greatly improve the lighting on the 300 yard target racks. And the backstop on the 200 yard range has been completely refurbished.
Come out to the range and experience the improvements for yourself.
Join us Tuesday, May 24th on a trip to Harrisburg for the 11th annual 2nd Amendment Rally. The bus runs directly from the Northside parking lot. The cost is $40. Northside members who ride the bus receive credit for 6 hours of volunteer work, which is worth up to $50 in dues reduction. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is a U.S. government-chartered program that promotes firearm safety training and rifle practice for all qualified U.S. citizens. The CMP operates through a network of affiliated shooting clubs and state associations that cover every state in the U.S. The clubs and associations offer the opportunity for continued firearm practice and competition. Any U.S. citizen who is not legally prohibited from owning a firearm may participate.
The Northside Sportsman’s Association (NSSA) is hosting a CMP informational clinic on April 12, 2016 at 7:00 pm to present an overview of CMP/NRA match procedures and best-practices, discuss this year’s match events and answer questions.
This year’s match events include:
- NRA Rifle Matches
- Springfield/Vintage Rifle Match
- Carbine Match
- Garand Match
- .22 Caliber Match
- F-Class High Power Rifle Matches
Although a basic understanding of firearms and firearm safety is a prerequisite to participating in a match, you don’t even have to own your own rifle. NSSA has two AR-15 rifles to loan to participants, which can be used at the seven NRA Rifle Matches in 2016.
At the meeting, you will be able to ask questions and learn more about the CMP, CMP events, and procedures used during the events (match procedures, qualifying firearms, range commands, etc.). You will also be able to learn about some exciting new provisions for 2016 that allow for a greater number of rifles and participants.
Come to the CMP informational meeting on April 12 to find out more on how to get involved and participate in CMP activities!
