Default CMP Runs Record-Shattering Relays with Electronic Targets at 2017 Eastern Games

CMP Runs Record-Shattering Relays with Electronic Targets at 2017 Eastern Games - CAMP BUTNER, N.C. – The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) 2017 Eastern Games made a mark in the history of the organization as it featured its mobile electronic targets for the time in North Carolina – resulting in the most relays ever ran at Eastern Games. GSM Matches, which typically run four relays each day, saw days with a total of nine and 10 relays during its scheduled times, while the Vintage Sniper and other matches finished in record time. The targets eliminate the need for pit duty, allowing more time for the fun part of CMP Games events – the shooting.

A group of us who came down from Ohio were very impressed with the way the games were run. The electronic targets were a tremendous asset. The one thing that was missing was a 5 ring inscribed on the targets.

Great job!!!

They are nice in rapids and make scoring easy, but they have some issues.
Bring extra ammo you may need it.

I agree with Herzo a five ring would be very beneficial. Its hard to call your shots especially in offhand.

I shot in 5 rifle matches in 2 days!

Try doing THAT with regular targets, incl pit changes!
