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!
