Houston, Tx –-( Dear TSRA Members, Family and Friends:

TSRA headquarters has been inundated with calls from concerned members. Below is the latest information researched and provided by High Power Rifle Director, Ken Gabe from Belton.

This information is minutes old and could be considered “from the horse’s mouth”.

Civilian Marksman Program status:

Information provided this morning by a CMP spokes-person:

“The latest Exec order, action, policy, or whatever it turns out to be has no impact on the CMP. From what we have read, the action applies to private importers. CMP has never imported a firearm and will never import a firearm. Any rifle we receive is transferred to us by the U.S. Army, who is not affected by the latest news. All of the rumors and reports were unfounded and were made without anyone verifying the accuracy of the reports with CMP. We will be sending a short and simple statement to all our constituents this week.

Thank you checking with us instead of just continuing to report our demise.”

TSRA and the CMP program are historically tied together and the story of our history is being compiled. In the meantime, a brief explanation from our archives. Click here

**Check out the proposal by Senator Glen Hegar, a tax-free Back to the Hunt weekend! Senator Hegar is a friend to Texas gun owners for certain! You might recall Sen. Hegar passed SB 321, employer parking lot legislation in 2011.

Good, then the CMP should be able to make a deal to get those Garands from South Korea, since the CMP is the only buyer that can bring them back. The CMP has brought back Garands, 1903A3, and Carbines from Greece and other places. This cloud might have a silver lining for the CMP.

I just completred (3) weeks as an NRA Line Officer, Block Officer and Pit Officer duties for both the CMP Rifle matches as well as the NRA national Matches and I am here to tell you, EVERYTHING is alive and WELL!

We all had a great time with the USMC Rifle Team and armorers that assisted the shooters on the ranges as well as the after match gatherings.

So, grab your guns, load your ammo and get shooting for that high score! I’ll be seeing you all again at Camp Perry in 2014!

Semper Fidelis!


Just keep the gun grabbers hands off these weapons or they will be destroyed. Clinton had hundreds of thousands of 1903 Springfields destroyed while he was in office. Many good deer rifles and military heritage gone froever.


We always have the freedom of revolution as long as we have our weapons!!! We can change everything else by exercising our gun rights of revolutions. This is what scares the hell out of our country.

Can’t comment , no longer have freedom of speech or thought , no longer have freedom to disagree with the government , no longer have the freedom to feel free .


Phil, Camp Perry is the northern branch of the CMP. It’s not a state program.


Now no states have CMP program. U.S.has obama.


Several states also have CMP program.
Ohio has Camp Perry.
