The IAWCA CMP Matches

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.
