CAMP PERRY, Ohio –-(Ammoland.com)- After seven months of hard work and concentration, over 300 sporter and precision air rifle juniors will meet on the firing line for one final test to ultimately determine who are the best marksmen in the country.

The 2014 CMP National Three Position Air Rifle Championships will be held June 23-25 and June 26-28 at the new Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Camp Perry, Ohio.

Junior JROTC, 4-H and club team marksmen involved in the competition began their journey with the CMP Postal Competition in November, where CMP-issued targets were mailed into Headquarters for official scoring. Top shooters in the Postal Competition were invited to compete in the Regional Championships in March and April, with the overall high individuals and teams from that match qualifying for the National Championship.

The event is free and open to the public. All are encouraged to visit the world-class Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center to witness extreme skill from tremendously talented juniors, as well as to explore the authentic Olympic memorabilia from two-time gold medalist and range namesake, Gary Anderson.
