Stop By Our Permanent Air Gun Competition Centers…
The Civilian Marksmanship Program maintains two permanent Air Gun Competition Centers: the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Camp Perry, Ohio, and the CMP Air Gun Competition Center – South in Anniston, Alabama.
Both of these world-class air rifle and air pistol training and competition facilities feature state-of-the-art electronic targets at each of their 80 firing points. All shots are instantly displayed on monitors beside each shooter and on display screens visible to spectators in the center area of the range. The facilities also feature common areas with classrooms, offices, restrooms and a foyer.

In addition to hosting an array of air rifle and air pistol events throughout the year, both centers have Marksmanship Nights every Tuesday evening.
During the National Matches in July and August, the Camp Perry location hosts the National Match Air Gun Events. (To get more information on National Matches and download a schedule, click here.) This range is also open throughout the summer for Air Gun Events and public Marksmanship Training.
Our ranges also feature a Monthly Bench League Match. Click here for more details.
… Or Let Our Mobile Range Come to You!
In an effort to expand its outreach to shooters around the country, CMP has constructed a portable air rifle range with all of the luxuries of a state-of-the-art air gun facility. It’s comprised of 60 electronic MEGAlink targets, all with color monitors next to the shooter so he or she is able to see each shot after it’s fired.
Because of its versatile design, the mobile range can be used as a 60-point range, or broken down into three sets of 20 targets or two sets of 30 targets. Its ability to adapt to different areas of space gives the range the flexibility to be used in a variety of settings.
Additional features include LED targets set up downrange, with a lift system for 3-position shooting, as well as eight 60″ TVs to show the scores, and tables and chairs for spectators. The program is run by a three-computer system constructed in the middle of the range, which operates the targets, lifts, results and TV’s.
