CMP 2021 Monthly Airgun Match Dates Released
The Civilian Marksmanship Program has released its 2021 Monthly Airgun Match dates and looks forward to welcoming competitors at its indoor airgun ranges. A full line-up of air rifle and air pistol events is scheduled for the coming year.
These 2021 Monthly Airgun Match events are open to the public and designed for all ages and experience levels.
CMP Monthly Matches are held at both CMP Competition Centers (located in Anniston, Alabama, and at the Camp Perry National Guard Training Facility in Port Clinton, Ohio). Both facilities are equipped with 80 electronic targets which allow competitors to view their shots instantly on the monitor at their firing point. The range is 10 Meters and you always can be assured of some outstanding shooting!
Since spectators are limited at this time (one coach/parent allowed for each competitor), the CMP’s innovative technology allows anyone to view targets in real time on our website (https://thecmp.org/competitions/live-targets/).
Monthly Matches currently scheduled for the 2021 season include:
Feb. 6, 2021
March 20, 2021
April 10, 2021
May 8, 2021
Sept. 18, 2021

During the Monthly Matches, competitors have the opportunity to be ranked amongst match participants from around the nation as competitions fire simultaneously in Alabama and Ohio. Staple events of the Monthly Matches include a Junior 3×20, Junior 3×10, 60 Shot Air Rifle Standing and 60 Shot Air Pistol. Top scorers at each range are presented special Monthly Match medals.
A Monthly Match League that combines the scores of repeat competitors adds even more competitive fun and the chance to cultivate match experience on the firing line. Prizes are awarded to the overall winners from both Ohio and Alabama during the 2021 season.
Eligible events for the 2021 Monthly Airgun Match League include: Pistol 60 Shots (No PPP), Rifle 60 Shots, Sporter 3×20 and Precision 3×20.
Along with cash prizes based on League participation, the first three places in each category will receive a CMP plaque. Additional prizes will be given to fourth and fifth place overall winners, along with recognition of the High Junior in Pistol and Rifle and the Most Improved competitors.
Although it is CMP’s hope to hold these upcoming events, please keep in mind that there may be cancellations due to COVID-19 issues. For those events that do take place, the CMP will follow the appropriate state’s guidelines and recommendations. The CMP continues to monitor the venue states’ guidelines and adjusts its procedures based on those guidelines and common sense.
As always – says the CMP – the safety of its customers and employees is top priority.
