Military Rifle (CMP) League

The RSC Military Rifle Matches have been conducted monthly for the past eight 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.

RSC also conducts “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, 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: www.odcmp.com).

May 11th MATCH
The third match of the 2024 RSC CMP Spring/Summer league was held on Saturday, 11-May. Twelve shooters fired fifteen lines. Top scores fired were Kevin Cramer with a 275=4x, Ojan Negahban shot a 258-1x, Mike Guis fired a 252-2x, and Lou Skar with a 252-1x. We’re seeing some improved scoring in the last couple of months – maybe we learned a bit from Sgt Clouser in March.

Thanks to everyone for contacting me to reserve a Relay time. I believe that we’ll be able to use Shoot-N-Scoreit for future Relay scheduling, although I don’t have it ready to take reservations yet – I’ll send out a notification when it’s ready, along with a link to open Shoot-N-Scoreit.

The next match is Saturday, 15-June-2024, from 10:00-2:00.

A League membership is not required to take part in a match. All matches are OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, so non-RSC members may participate.
