The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) promotes firearms safety training and rifle practice for all qualified U.S. citizens with special emphasis on youth. The CMP operates through a network of affiliated shooting clubs and associations that covers every state in the United States. MFR&G Club offers firearms safety training and marksmanship courses as well as the opportunity for continued practice and competition.
The CMP was created by the U.S. Congress. The original purpose was to provide civilians an opportunity to learn and practice marksmanship skills so they would be skilled marksmen if later called on to serve the U.S. military. Over the years the emphasis of the program shifted to focus on youth development through marksmanship. From 1916 until 1996 the CMP was administered by the U.S. Army. In 1996 the National Defense Authorization Act created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice & Firearms Safety, Inc. to take over administration of the CMP.
The CMP supports affiliated organizations with a series of programs. CMP programs for its affiliates include the sale, at subsidized prices, of ammunition and rifles suitable for target training.
Stop by for a match sometime and see what it’s all about.
