Good won’t get you to the Olympics, but an exceptional shooter might. It takes a considerable amount of talent and practice to qualify for the Olympic Games, but it is possible. Typically new shooters start in the sporter category and move into precision air rifle as they grow. If they are talented and dedicated to their sport, 3-P Air competitors can qualify for college scholarships and even compete in international competitions and the Olympics. It is not uncommon to shoot alongside Olympic medalists at certain CMP 3-P Air events at our Camp Perry and Anniston, Alabama marksmanship centers.
