TALLADEGA, Ala. – Looking to the fall, the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) event calendar is already full of a wide assortment of rifle and pistol competitions for supporters to enjoy. One event returning in 2021 that has become a staple on the CMP’s annual lineup is the Talladega 600 – set for Nov. 15-21 at CMP’s own Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama.
Known as “A Southern Classic,” the Talladega 600 incorporates an array of opportunities for enthusiasts of all ages, disciplines and experience levels. The Talladega 600 features popular recreation-oriented rifle matches, such as:
- Garand/Springfield/Vintage/Modern Military Rifle (GSMM)
- Carbine Rifle
- .22 Rimfire Sporter
- M1A Rifle
- Vintage Sniper Rifle
- Benchrest Garand and Rimfire Sporter Matches
Versions of prestigious National Trophy Rifle Matches (the Congressional 30 and Dixie Double), team events and Rifle and Pistol Excellence-In-Competition (EIC) matches are also on the agenda. For Pistol, a series of As-Issued 1911, Military & Police, .22/Centerfire/.45 Pistol Aggregates as well as .22 and Service Pistol EIC events will undoubtedly challenge competitors on the firing line.
Those looking for more educational opportunities may sign up for the Rifle and Pistol Marksmanship 101 courses, which combine both classroom and live-fire practice on the range. Additionally, GSM Master Instructor and Range Officer Level II courses will train individuals on hosting and maintaining their own CMP events at their home ranges.
See it all at one of the country’s most advanced facilities, the Talladega Marksmanship Park! Learn more about the Talladega 600 and find registration info through the CMP website at https://thecmp.org/cmp-matches/talladega-600/.
