2020 Western CMP Games & CMP Cup Matches


West_wThe Western CMP Cup & CMP Games Matches, sponsored by the Civilian Marksmanship Program, will be held at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility, Arizona.

The CMP Cup Matches include two CMP 1000 Aggregate Matches followed by a 4-Man Team Match and an EIC Service Rifle Match.  Following the CMP Cup Matches will be the CMP Games Matches.
