“The Most Advanced Public Marksmanship Facility in the United States”
The CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park, a 500-acre facility located two miles from the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama, is the most advanced public sport shooting facility in the United States. Electronic targets, located on Ranges 1, 2 & 3 relay scores and reports shots instantly to shooter & spectator monitors & CMP database. Covered firing lines protect shooters from the elements and provide shelter for both participants and spectators. Shotgun enthusiasts may take advantage of 5-stand, trap fields and a sporting clays course featuring 15 challenging stations.

December 2nd – IDPA Match
The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real life encounters. One of the unique facets of this sport is that it is geared toward the new or average shooter, yet is fun, challenging and rewarding for the experienced shooter. The founders developed the sport so that practical gear and practical guns may be used competitively. An interested person can spend a minimal amount on equipment and still be competitive. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of the individual, not equipment or gamesmanship.
