The IAWCA CMP matches are a great opportunity for shooters to hone their rifle shooting skills. It does not matter if you are a long time rifle match shooter or a first time rifle match participant it is a fun  way to become more proficient with your rifle. These matches are for service rifles (AR 15/M16, M1A/M14, M1 Garand).Matches can be shot with bolt guns but you will need to be able to use stripper clips to reload rapidly. We do have an open class that will allow you to shoot any rifle.

We do offer prize money for seasonal high aggregate scores for service rifle ($50) and M1 Garand ($50) it is possible for one person to get both of these prizes and has happened in the past.

IAWCA does have 2 Club AR 15’s and 1 M1 Garand for club members to use in club matches, you must use club ammo in these rifles and reimburse replacement cost or use approved factory ammo. I need to know in advance if someone wants to use club rifles to make necessary arrangements.

Shooting in these matches meet part of the qualifications to purchase rifles from the CMP.
