NATIONAL CMP GAMES EVENTS
In 1998, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) inaugurated the John C. Garand Match and, with it, an exciting new concept in target competition. The Garand Match is a unique competition where shooters fire older “as-issued” military rifles over a course of fire that makes target shooting attractive to the average shooter. The availability of surplus M1 and other older military rifle make target shooting accessible to thousands of shooters, many of whom do not participate in traditional target competitions. The Garand Match allows shooters to reenact military and marksmanship history and features camaraderie and a relaxed, fun-filled, yet challenging experience.
In response to the growing popularity of the Garand Match, the CMP established other competitions of the same type that now include the Springfield Rifle Match, Vintage Military Rifle Match, Rimfire Sporter Match, M1 Carbine Match, Vintage Sniper Rifle Team Match and Modern Military Rifle Match. Together, these matches have come to be known as “CMP Games Matches.”
