CMP Sends Important Reminder to GSMM Competitors of the 2021 National Matches

The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) would like to remind our 2021 National Match Garand/Springfield/Vintage/Modern Military (GSMM) competitors that they will be able to fire the rifle of their choice on the day (Friday – Sunday) and time of their choice. The GSMM Matches are scheduled for August 6-8.

Although all firing points will now be utilized during the events, competitors may only fire each rifle once – no reentry (firing the same rifle in the same category more than once) will be permitted at the 2021 National Matches.

The GSMM Rifle Matches are part of the CMP Games lineup conducted annually at the National Matches and at several other events throughout the year. During the match, competitors are able to fire a variety of vintage military rifles and service rifles at 200 yards. The course of fire includes slow-fire prone, rapid-fire prone and slow-fire standing portions.
