Military Rifle (CMP) League

The RSC Military Rifle Matches have been conducted monthly for the past four 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” (40 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” 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 now 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: www.odcmp.com).
