Participation in action shooting events allows service members to network, exchange skillsets and then take the knowledge gained back to their home units and disseminate the skills down. USAR-CMP represents the forefront of small arms skill in the Army Reserve and are the only formally proven and acknowledged experts on the proper use and training of small arms across the force. These shooter-instructors are some of the world’s best trained small arms marksmen, conducting small arms training, hosting marksmanship events and competing at major venues throughout the United States and abroad.

Army Regulation 140–1, Chapter 7 directs small arms programs and competition within the US Army Reserve.

From MAJ Luke Gosnell

We finished up a 3-gun training class last night for two awesome Wounded Warriors who have for quite some time wanted to try the sport, but didn’t have the knowledge, equipment and friends that also wanted to try it with them. If any of you know of any vets that have not shot competitively before and would like to get free training with equipment and ammo provided, please share the link below or my contact info with them.
