CMP Competition Rulebooks that will govern all CMP sponsored and sanctioned competitions in 2019 have now been approved by the CMP Board’s Rules Committee and posted on the CMP website. Significant changes in this year’s rulebooks include dividing the former Service Rifle and Pistol Rulebook into two separate rulebooks, the establishment of a new program to give persons with disabilities an opportunity to earn Distinguished Badges and the creation of separate unlimited classes for Modern Military Rifles and Rimfire Sporter Rifles. 2019 CMP Competition Rulebooks are effective immediately and can be downloaded from the CMP website by using the following links:
- Highpower Rifle Competition Rules, governs Service Rifle and Long Range Rifle;
- Pistol Competition Rules, governs Service Pistol and 22 Rimfire Pistol;
- CMP Games Competition Rules, governs As-Issued Military Rifle, Modern Military Rifle, Vintage Sniper Rifle Team Match, Rimfire Sporter Rifle and As-Issued Pistol;
- Smallbore Rifle Competition Rules, governs CMP traditional Smallbore Rifle Position and Prone.
The 2019 Modern Military rule changes have brought about a lot of questions so our staff put together an informational sheet. It may be viewed at http://thecmp.org/wp-content/uploads/MM-Explanation-2019.pdf.
