About the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center:

The Gary Anderson Competition Center range consists of 80 firing points – each equipped with new electronic targets, installed in November 2016. The high-tech Kongsberg Target System (KTS) targets are powered by OpticScore technology, which are scored optically by internal LED lights. Monitors at each firing point instantly display scores, and button functions with an LED lighted screen allow ease of use for individuals of all ages and experience levels. Large overhead LED screens keep spectators in on the action.

The Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center houses display cases filled with items from the astounding career of Gary Anderson – a two-time Olympic gold medalist. Among the many items are outfits worn by Anderson at the 1964 and 1968 Olympics, the Olympic torch he carried and handed to Muhammad Ali to light the main torch at the 1996 Games and the Olympic Order (the highest honor) awarded to Anderson by the International Olympic Committee in 2012.

The facility also contains memorabilia from the career of decorated American marksman and CMP Emeritus, Gary Anderson. A two-time gold medalist, the collection includes authentic Olympic items, a medal from President John F. Kennedy and even a piece of the Berlin wall. All are welcome to tour the facility, free of charge.
