Military Rifle (CMP) League

The RSC Military Rifle Matches have been conducted monthly for the past six years, providing RSC members and non-members the opportunity to exercise their military-style rifles in a safe and friendly competition. The RSC rifle range has six firing positions on a covered concrete pad with safety eyebrows, with targets set at 100 and 200 yards against twenty-foot high berms for safety. A heated and air-conditioned shoot building is proximate to the range for registration and target scoring. The RSC Military Rifle program is based on the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), and predominately employs NRA and CMP rules and practices for “as-issued” military rifles. RSC’s Military Rifle Matches incorporate both “Course A” (30 rds @ 100 yds, SR-1 targets) and “Course B” (30 rds @ 200 yds, SR targets) courses of fire. Shooters may participate in individual matches, or sign up for the summer or winter leagues, which have awards given for various classes and courses of fire.
The leagues often conclude with an awards banquet or BBQ. RSC has also conducted “fun” matches, including “Sniper” and “Call to Battle”, “Prairie Dog Shoots”, and “Playing Card” matches. A wide range of rifles are commonly used, from modern and vintage semi-automatics such as AR-15′s, and FN-FAL’s, M1-A1′s, SKS’s, AK-47′s, M1 Garands and M1 Carbines to US and Foreign Bolt Action rifles including Springfields, Enfields, Mausers, Moisin-Nagants, Arisakas, and others.
RSC is a CMP-Affliated Club. Although it’s monthly matches are not CMP-Registered, future plans include CMP-Registered matches, which will be identified as such. Participation in one or more matches entitles the shooter to purchase firearms, ammo, and other items from CMP (website:

JUNE 20th Match
Saturday saw eight shooters fire eight lines while enjoying? some WARM summer weather.

Steve Gardner led the pack with a 283-5X, again a course “B” personal best. Ken Adkins also shot a personal best, exercising his newly re-barreled AR-15 to shoot a 263-3X, while Paul Austin trailed closely with a 258-4X using his M1 Garand. Dennis Schichtel again joined us, firing a very good 240-2X with his AR-15. Phil Cull gamely overcame age, infirmity, and a balky rifle to post a 191-0X, and remained gentlemanly and gracious throughout.

I will go slightly political here, noting that ALL shooters fired AR-15’s, which many decry and demonize as the “Wicked Black Rifle”. I can happily report that no one was killed, injured, or even threatened by such a presence.

The next match will be Saturday, July 11, from 10-4. A make-up match is scheduled for the following Wednesday, July 15, from 4:00-7:00, for those who need to shoot one or more scores to finish the league.
