Only two Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) air gun matches remain in 2016. The CMP competition centers will undergo modernizing renovations in the fall. Due to the renovations, the final competition originally scheduled for November has been cancelled. Additionally, new events are available at the Talladega Marksmanship Park, beginning in October. The last two air gun Monthly Matches will be held September 17, and October 8, 2016.

During the Monthly Matches, new and experienced marksmen of all ages have the opportunity to be ranked among other competitors from across the country. Matches are held simultaneously at the South Competition Center in Anniston, AL, and the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Camp Perry, OH. Events fired include a Junior 3x20, Junior 3x10, Novice Prone, 60 Shot Air Rifle Standing and 60 Shot Air Pistol.

A Monthly Match League, combining the scores of frequent competitors for an overall aggregate competition adds even more fun to the mix. Prizes are awarded to the overall winners from both North and South during the 2016 season. Eligible events for the Monthly Match League include: Pistol 60 Shots (No PPP), Rifle 60 Shots, Sporter 3x20 and Precision 3x20.

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

Additional Rifle and Pistol Events: The CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama will be holding events in conjunction with the Monthly Matches beginning in October. These outdoor matches will include a 60 Shot Prone plus 3x40, Sport Pistol and Free Pistol events. The $25 entry cost will include the USA Shooting fee for the PTO.

The CMP Competition Centers are equipped with 80 electronic targets. The targets allow scores to be instantly displayed on small monitors beside each shooter as well as on large television screens for spectators to observe.
