Escape the Heat of July with the CMP’s National Match
Air Gun Events

CAMP PERRY, Ohio – Competitors looking for additional pistol or rifle opportunities during the National Rifle and Pistol Matches, as well as an escape from the heat of summer, are urged to consider the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) series of air rifle and air pistol events throughout the month of July in our air-conditioned, world-class Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center.

Events set within the CMP air range include 30 and 60 Shot Air Pistol, 30 and 60 Shot Air Rifle, 20 Shot Standing and 20 Shot Novice Prone. Top Center Shot cash prizes will be awarded during the 20 Shot Standing, 30 Shot Air Pistol and 30 Shot Air Rifle competitions. Additionally, an AiR-15 Challenge and Top 20 Shoulder-to-Shoulder competition will also be held with our CMP National Match AR-15 style air rifles. Rental rifles and pellets are available at the Competition Center for a minimal fee.


The National Match Air Gun events will consist of air rifle as well as air pistol matches. Air pistol competitions will include a 30 Shot match and a 60 Shot match.

All are encouraged to visit the newly-constructed Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center to participate in the National Match air events, as well as to explore the authentic Olympic memorabilia from two-time gold medalist and range namesake, Gary Anderson. An official Open House for the facility will be held on July 7 at 11:00AM (following the First Shot Ceremony) for a more in-depth look at the latest innovative installment to the CMP lineup. The CMP will also host two open houses during the National Matches on Tuesday, July 8, 5:00 – 7:00PM, and Thursday, July 17, 5:00 – 8:00PM.


An AiR-15 Challenge and a Top 20 Shoulder-to-Shoulder match will be fired with the CMP National Match AR-15 style air rifles. All National Match Air Gun events will be held in the newly renovated Gary Anderson Competition Center.

The world-class Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center range consists of 80 firing points – each equipped with state-of-the-art electronic targets. Spectators are able to observe each competitor’s shot via 90-inch hanging monitors. Live target images will also be available online through the CMP website for those following the action from home.

More information about the National Match Air Gun events, including match regulations and a full schedule, can be found at http://thecmp.org/NM/AirGunEvents.htm.
