The results are in for the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) first rifle and pistol League Matches.
The CMP’s League Matches were introduced in early 2022, featuring Outdoor Pistol, Highpower Rifle and CMP Games Rifle events. Participants competed by firing at a host range, with scores submitted and averaged within CMP’s online Competition Tracker system.
Awards are distributed to the top competitors from around the country. To qualify, competitors were required to fire at least three times over the course of the League, with average scores used to determine places first through third. In those events with a total of four participants, only the overall winner was awarded.
The Outdoor Pistol League Matches ran from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2022, and included 900 Pistol Aggregate matches and 30 Shot National Match Course (NMC) events.
