Shooting the Bullseye at Camp Perry Open, Bullseye Shooting

The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) invites you to participate in the eighth annual Camp Perry Open for competitive bullseye shooting. This year’s match will include a three-position air rifle competition, an international air rifle (all standing) event, a pistol course of fire, and an optional clinic held at the CMP Marksmanship Center – North at Camp Perry, Ohio.

The matches will be held 17-19 January 2014.

Celebrating its 17th year as a non-profit organization, the CMP has prepared an ever-growing number of shooters with firearm safety and marksmanship skills. Because of the success of its programs and sales, other organizations have decided to join CMP in its efforts by creating their own hometown clubs – some having been affiliated with CMP for over a decade.

Bullseye shooting, also known as conventional pistol, is a shooting sport in which participants shoot handguns at paper targets at fixed distances and time limits. A number of organizations, including the NRA and Civilian Marksmanship Program in the United States, have established rules and keep records for these sports. Emphasis is on accuracy and precision. The sport is primarily popular in United States and Canada. Bullseye pistol was the inspiration for the ISSF international 25 m Standard Pistol (82 feet) event and like the ISSF pistol events, the development of skills required to shoot one-handed at 5.5-inch (14 cm) and 8-inch (20 cm) bullseye targets at 25 and 50 yards (23 and 46 m), respectively, takes considerable training to achieve proficiency.
