CMP

What is it?
Back in 1903, Congress created the Office of the Director of the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The original purpose of the program was to teach civilians the skills they would need if they were one day needed for military service. This is, in many ways, the epitome of what the 2nd Amendment is all about: the government trusting the people to be armed because the people are the government.

CMP is really all about one rifle: the M1 Garand. This is the rifle which beat the Nazis in WW2 and is possibly the greatest rifle ever designed.
  

Qualifying for the program requires that you be signed off by our CMP range master John Farnham after going through the pre-requisite course of fire. The course requires you to fire from three postions: standing, kneeling, and prone. Once you qualify, you can purchase an M1 Garand from ODCMP for a very handsome price.

When is it?
We shoot at 1:30 PM on the 3rd Sunday of January, April, July and October. Please email garykim@comcast.net or call (530) 790-0464 for more info
 
What do you need?
TCRGC members pay $25 to shoot 35 rounds. Non members pay $30. Targets, rifles, and ammo are provided.
