Sign Up Now for the CMP New England Highpower and Travel Games in Vermont

By Ashley Brugnone, CMP Writer JERICHO, Vt. – Registration for the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) annual New England Highpower Rifle and Travel Games is now open. Set for Sept. 14-20, 2020, the popular rifle and pistol competition event is held at the Camp Ethan Allen National Guard Training Site and is hosted by the Vermont National Guard and the Vermont State Rifle and Pistol Association (VSRPA).  Competition begins with the CMP Highpower Rifle Matches, formally known as Cup Matches, which include two days of 80 Shot Aggregate competitions, a 4-Man Team event and a Service Rifle Excellence-In-Competition (EIC) Match. Next up, the Rifle Marksmanship 101 class (previously known as the Small Arms Firing School) will offer a hands-on learning opportunity in the classroom and on the firing line. Students in the class will learn gun safety, target shooting skills, positioning, basic rifle mechanics and will also participate in live fire on the range in a true M16 EIC match. Likewise, a Pistol Marksmanship 101 class will be offered, covering the same points as the rifle clinic and featuring an M9 EIC Match at the conclusion. All firearms and equipment will be provided for the class. The rest of the New England Games event consists of a mix of CMP Games matches – recreational-style marksmanship competitions like the Garand/Springfield/Vintage and Modern Military (GSM) rifle events, Carbine and Vintage Sniper rifle matches, as well as a GSM New Shooter Clinic for those wanting to learn more about the fundamentals of the match.  […]

Your Hump Day Reading List for May 6, 2020

Welcome to your Hump Day Reading List!

This is your refuge from the impersonal Google and FaceBook algorithms that seem to run our lives these days. Instead of a machine deciding what you’ll see, I personally go out and look for great articles that actually have value in the quest for greater personal and family safety.

From all of the articles that I find, I weed out the “fake news” and those that don’t have direct application to some aspect of preparedness. Then, to fight the growing scourge of information overload, I distill everything down to what I believe to be the three most useful articles you can read right now, explain the context of those articles, and identify any bias so you can trust what you read.

It’s a more personal, more targeted, and more efficient way to get the information you need!
