ANNISTON, Ala. – Registration is now open for the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) 13th annual Anniston Dixie Doubles Air Rifle and Air Pistol Competition, set to fire Nov. 3-5, 2022, at the South Competition Center in Alabama.
The event is fired on the state-of-the-art electronic targets housed within the facility and features two days of 60 Shot international air rifle and air pistol competitions for adults and juniors, along with a final to end each day. Additionally, a two-person (adult and junior pair) aggregate team event is held concurrently with the open shooting competition. Overall competitors are awarded each individual day as well as from the combined, two-day aggregate scores.
Hosting a variety of individuals from around the country, including Olympians and national-level athletes, the Anniston Dixie Doubles serves as a learning opportunity for new, upcoming competitors and is also a worthwhile challenge for experienced marksmen and women.
Returning to the Dixie Doubles in 2022 after a short hiatus is the exciting Target Sprint competition! Firing on Saturday, Nov. 4, participants in the Target Sprint run along a marked path, occasionally stopping to fire air rifles at five 10-meter falling targets – knocking all over before continuing the race. The first to cross the finish line wins! This fun event is open to all competitors and non-competitors, ages 10 and up, who have completed a basic rifle safety class. Sign up now for one of the South’s most popular air gun competitions! For more information about the Anniston Dixie Doubles and to register, visit https://thecmp.org/cmp-matches/dixie-double/.
