CMP: Small Arms Firing School

Fairfax seal Feb 21, 2019 - CMP: Small Arms Fire School

UPDATE: CMP informs me that the minimum age of 16 stated in their announcement is wrong.  The minimum age is actually 12.  Updated in the content below.

 

Shooters,

Save the date and stand by for more info!

The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) will be conducting a Small Arms Firing School (SAFS) at Fairfax Rod and Gun Club on Jun 22 and 23, 2019 !

SAFS is designed to introduce the shooter to the exciting discipline of high power rifle shooting. It

gives the competitor the basic tools to operate the service rifle safely and effectively in a

competitive environment. Attendees are instructed in safety, course of fire, zeroing the rifle, sight

alignment/sight picture, trigger manipulation, in short all the skills to begin competition.

Who can attend:

– must be at least 16 12 years old

– must have zero points toward the Distinguished Rifleman badge

Who would benefit from attending:

– shooters interested in competing in matches conducted under NRA and CMP rules for High

Power Rifle (FXRGC conducts at least one of this type match a month).

SAFS is a two day course:

– Saturday morning will be classroom instruction conducted by a member of the CMP staff.

Students will receive an electronic copy of the presentation.

– Saturday afternoon will be range firing. Competitors will be coached through a zeroing

exercise and practice firing.

– Sunday is an Excellence In Competition match.

The top ten percent of shooters in Sunday's match will be awarded 4 points toward the

30 points needed for the prestigious Distinguished Rifleman (DR) badge.

CMP will provide rifles (AR15 A2/A4) and ammunition. NO PRIVATELY OWNED RIFLES

OR AMMO WILL BE ALLOWED. CMP rifles are equipped with non-optical sights (aperture

rear, post front). All firing will be done on electronic targets. Each firing point will be equipped

with a video monitor to instantaneously display the location of the shot on the target and its value.

Cost will be $95 per shooter. Registration will be done through the CMP web site. An

announcement will be sent later (mid-March) providing the opening date of registration and the

URL. If you're likely to attend please so state in an email to the match director. This will help us in

our planning process.

Questions can be directed to the High Power Match Director, Dan Gray, dtgray@verizon.net

Anyone know what range this was?


The Year – 1960. Eugene Copeland, who was 16 years old at the time, is pictured here shooting a .357 magnum with his brother Lloyd and Dad, Robert Copeland at the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club. Eugene would have been 75 tomorrow – thanks to his daughter Kat Morris Hicks for sending this in.
