The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) annual 3P Regional air rifle events were recently fired throughout the month of April, with over 450 talented junior athletes vying to qualify for the National Championship in June. Each Regional match is a 3x20 (three-position) air rifle competition, where sporter and precision class athletes from 4-H, Scouts, American Legion, club or JROTC rifle programs fire 20 shots at three positions: prone, standing and kneeling.

Three separate matches were held at CMP venues around the country, including the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry, Ohio, the CMP’s south air gun range at the South Competition Center in Anniston, Ala., as well as through the use of its Mobile Range in Sandy, Utah. Qualifiers for the National competition are chosen from the overall scores from the combined regions.

Precision competitor Taylor Gibson from Oregon won the 2018 JROTC National Three-Position event and also led overall at CMP Regionals.
