Sign Up Now For The 2018 CMP Monthly Matches For Air Rifle and Air Pistol

The Civilian Marksmanship Program has announced the return of its annual airgun challenge – the 2018 CMP Monthly Matches.

The 2018 CMP Monthly Matches feature a series of air rifle and air pistol events for all ages and experience levels. They offer safe, fun and thrilling competition in multiple airgun target shooting disciplines.

Each match will be held at the South CMP Competition Center in Anniston, Ala., and up north at the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry, Ohio. Both locations offer 80-point ranges filled with CMP’s own electronic targets.

2018 CMP Monthly Matches are scheduled for the following dates:

• March 10, 2018
• April 21, 2018
• May 19, 2018
• Sept. 15, 2018
• Oct. 13, 2018
• Nov. 17, 2018

During the CMP Monthly Matches, competitors have the opportunity to be ranked against other match participants from across the country. This is because the competitions are held simultaneously at our ranges in both Alabama and Ohio.

Staple events fired include a Junior 3×20, Junior 3×10, 60 Shot Air Rifle Standing and 60 Shot Air Pistol.

Please note that the Novice Prone event, fired in past years, has been removed from the 2018 schedule.

There will also be a Monthly Match League. This combines the scores of frequent competitors for an overall aggregate competition. It adds even more fun to the mix!

Prizes are awarded to the overall winners from both North and South during the 2018 season. Eligible events for the Monthly 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 of the 2018 CMP Monthly Matches will receive a CMP plaque. Additional prizes will be given to fourth and fifth place overall winners.

Awards will also be presented to the High Junior in Pistol and Rifle and the Most Improved competitor.
