CMP Hosts GSMM Air Rifle and Air Pistol Meetups in Ohio and Alabama in September

The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) kept busy on Saturday, September 17, 2022, as it hosted three special events between its facilities in Camp Perry, Ohio, and Anniston, Alabama.

The first was a Garand, Springfield, Vintage and Modern Military (GSMM) rifle match at the Camp Perry outdoor electronic target line on the Petrarca Range. The event was open to adults and youth, reaching almost 50 entries throughout the day.

Jeffrey Beierke, 58, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, with a score of 265-5X, led the Garand Match by only x count. Doug Staaf, 65, of Wattsburg, Pennsylvania, claimed victory in the Springfield Match at 263-3X, while Dean Davenport, 37, of Scio, NY, topped the Vintage Military field at 264-2X. Zachary Coffey, 31, of Manchester, Michigan, led the Modern Military event by more than 10 points at 289-5X. Find a full list of GSMM Match results at

Monthly airgun matches include 3×20 airguns and international-style airguns and BB guns for adults and youth.

Also held on the same day was the latest round of CMP monthly matches, which were shot at every indoor airgun shooting location in Ohio and Alabama. The event featured three position air rifle and ISSF (International Shooting Sports Federation) air rifle and air pistol competitions for adult and junior athletes.

SP4 Sagen Maddalena led the ISSF Rifle event in Alabama.

In Anniston, SP4 Olympians Sagen Maddalena, 29, and SSG Sandra Uptagrafft, 51, earned victories in the ISSF Air Rifle and Air Pistol events, respectfully. At Camp Perry, the 3×20 athletes put on impressive battles in the precision and sports categories, each winner determined by decimal scores. Riley Dunn, 16, took the overall spot in accuracy and cruised to victory 0.6 points ahead of 17-year-old Katrina Demerle. In sporter, 15-year-old Brianna Benedetto edged out 16-year-old Santiago Camacho by just 0.4 points to win first place.
