Chapter Calendar

Our next Civilian Marksmanship Program Match will be held on our rifle range on 5 November 2022.

The Alexandria chapter of the IWLA is affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). As a CMP affiliated club, we offer sanctioned CMP matches governed by the "CMP Games, Rifle and Pistol Rules" four times a year in accordance with the chapter shooting sports schedule. Competitions offered are Vintage and As-Issued Military Rifle course B, Military & Police Service Pistol, and Rimfire Sporter Rifle matches. Our next IWLA Shooting Sports Event is a CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle match November 5, 2022. Rain, sun, or cold we shoot. CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Matches offer shooters a recreation-oriented competition where they use .22 caliber sporter rifles (plinking and small game rifles) commonly owned by almost all gun enthusiasts. This is a unique match where all you need is a rifle and ammo. You fire with standard sporter-type rimfire rifles that can weigh no more than 7 ½ pounds, with sights and sling. Rifles may be manually operated or semi-automatic; shooters with manually operated actions are given extra time in rapid-fire to compensate for the difference. There are three classes of competition – the standard “O Class” for open-sighted rifles, “T-Class” for telescope sighted and rear aperture sighted rifles and “Tactical Rimfire” class, which is a .22 caliber A4 or AR15 style rifle. Firing for all classes is done at 50 and 25 yards on a target with a 1.78” ten-ring and an 18” outer one-ring. Even new shooters can get hits on this target, but it’s still tough enough that only one person has fired a perfect 600×600 score – a junior, Sam Payne, in 2015. 0800-0845 Check in and set up targets. 0845 Safety brief (If you miss the safety brief you can't shoot) 0900 First relay sets up and match begins. $20 members, $30 non-members, under 18 FREE.
