Virginia Junior Marksmanship Program:
VJMP is an organization that encourages youth participation in the shooting sports. Members of the team range from 13 to 20 years old. We focus on teaching marksmanship and competing in High Power Rifle competitions, using an AR-15 Match Rifle, that test the skills of competitors on a known distance course of 200, 300 and 600 yards. This is known as shooting Across the Course (XTC).
We started this season with five Juniors, training in the IWLA Clubhouse on Wednesday nights and competing in local matches. They started at the end of April by competing at Fairfax Rod & Gun Club in their High Power Spring League and have been competing in their bi-monthly matches since then, applying what they have been practicing and learning how to score and "pull pits." We plan to finish the season with a trip to Camp Butner, NC to compete in the NC State XTC Championship and the IWLA CMP rifle match in October.

Ed MacBride has been making updates to the rifle/pistol range. He is planning excavations to improve the berms and range surface. Check the web site and Facebook before coming to the range for closings due to construction or activities.
The pistol range has been extended to 60 yards to accommodate longer range handguns. A right of way for power and access has also been established. Construction of a berm to separate the rifle/pistol ranges is complete.
