Why Not Join The CMP Aces Postal Airgun Competition?

The Aces Postal is a satellite match run by the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). It offers all junior and adult air rifle and air pistol shooters a program designed to encourage participation in the sport and test marksmanship skills nationally with their peers.

The CMP Aces Postal program consists of Air Rifle, Air Pistol, and Para-Air Rifle/Air Pistol events. These are 10 M target competitions. Rifle event participants can compete using either Precision or Sporter models.

There’s several competition opportunities over the course of four quarters (Q1: January-March; Q2: April-June; Q3: July-September; Q4: October-December).

Aces Postal competitors fire at their home ranges on CMP-provided Orion paper targets or electronic targets before being returned to CMP for recording.

Events include the 3×20 Sporter Junior, 3×20 Precision Junior, 3×20 Adult Sporter, 3×20 Adult Sporter, 60 Shot Rifle and 60 Shot Pistol matches. Para-athletes are also welcome to compete, with SH1 Standing, SH1 Prone, SH2 Prone and SH2 Standing competitions available.

Participants who fire in the Aces Postal earn a uniquely designed poker chip. A new chip is given each quarter, offering the possibility of earning up to four collectable CMP chips!

For inspiration, below are the results of the 2019 CMP Aces Postal competitions. The top scorer of each quarter is listed, according to event. The best average score of the event over the four quarters is also recognized.
