If you want fast paced, high round count pistol shooting....... go IPSC.
The CMP won't ever replace them.

If you want accuracy based competition with a pistol......... go CMP.
No one else offers that.

If you want fast paced variable course sniper matches with any sort of rifle..... Go PRS. The CMP can't compete.

If you want solely precision based courses with any sort of rifle..... Go F Class. The CMP can't compete.

What the CMP should be providing is a unique competition for the Service rifle and pistol shooters to compete in...............

Trying to replace those other branches of competition will fail.

What the CMP should be doing is advertising just hwo unique and challenging the various CMP matches are............ that will bring in more shooters.
I can speak regarding the PRS as I shoot in PRS and local matches.
In terms of PRS, CMP could compete to bring in new shooters.
Few ideas:
Same level or moving but with modern rifles. Limit to military cartridges (no 6.5 creedmoor, 6 dasher, 6 creedmore, etc)

PRS style matches are fun as hell. Combine the two of Pro's of the CMP with the PRS. Sure may not be shooting out to 1k+ yards but getting off the deck on to a standing barricade with a full size IPSC at 300-400 yards with irons I think would be hella fun time.

I've been into Service Rifle (seriously) for 3 years. Knoblach glasses helped a LOT, but I'm certain going to a scope (like many on the line at the 2017 NM) will help me reach my goals.

What are the lesson's that those of you who have switched, learned?
My take is that you do not have to pay big bucks [i.e., 1800 - 3000] for a reliable scope for XTC.
Over in USRifleTeams, a poll on scopes used shows over 50% are using either a Leupold or a Vortex.
Personally, I've put over 7000 rounds through a VX2 [used on a match rifle].
There have been reports of tracking issues with some Leupolds and Vortexs - and there has been one with a Nightforce.
Note that John Holliger at WOA uses a Leupold for all his matches.

As for scopes helping with vision, at 72 the cataracts in my eyes made it impossible to get good sight alignment. Going to a scope decreased my groups by 50%.
