The 6th Annual Dixie Double Air Rifle and Pistol
Competition will be fired November 21-23 at the world-class CMP
South Range in Anniston, Ala. The match is open to both men and
women, as well as junior competitors. With regular participation
from the Army Marksmanship Unit, the Dixie Double is an
opportunity to stand on the firing line amongst some of the best
marksmen in the country.
The match is a two-day event, where competitors compare 60-shot
standing scores. A two-man aggregate team event is also held
concurrently with the open shooting competition. During the
event, a final is held each day to determine daily winners,
while an award ceremony on the last day of competition
recognizes the combined, two-day, overall score leaders. The
team award is also presented to the two-man teams with the
highest aggregate scores.
A new, fun addition to the match this year is the
competition, to be held November 22. The Target Sprint is open
to all competitors and non-competitors, ages 10 and up, who have
completed a basic rifle safety class. During the competition,
participants run along a path, occasionally stopping to fire air
rifles at five 10-meter falling targets – knocking all over
before continuing on. The first to cross the finish line wins!
The 20,000 sq. ft. South Range is located within the CMP
Anniston Competition Center and consists of 80, 10-meter firing
points. Each is equipped with state-of-the-art MEGAlink
electronic targets, which allow instant shot displays to both
competitors and spectators.
