The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s traveling entry-level rifle marksmanship school, formerly known as the Small Arms Firing School On-the-Road, has been re-branded with a new name: CMP Rifle/Pistol Marksmanship 101.
The course is structured toward teaching new shooters (both adults and youth alike), so no past firearm experience is required, though intermediate and advanced marksmen are also welcome to participate. During the course, students will learn basic instruction and firing practices, competition skills and live range firing, as well as compete in a real M16/M9 EIC Match.
Equipment, including rifles/pistols and ammo, will be provided. Personal equipment, such as a shooting jacket or glove, will be permitted during the course as well. Participants are required to bring hearing protection and eye protection is strongly encouraged.
Led by certified military and/or civilian instructors, Marksmanship 101 course is a great opportunity to learn more about the marksmanship world in a safe and comfortable setting.
