Today was the start of the CMP events. Small Arms Firing School (SAFS), M9 Excellence in Competition Match (EIC), .22 Cal EIC, and Glock Match.
The US Army Marksmanship Unit hosts the SAFS, supplies the pistols, ammo, literature, and the top military pistol shooters from all the services are the firing line coaches. Rack grade Beretta M9s are used. Ammo is top of the line Atlanta Arms Elite 9mm 124gr match. All shooting is done at the 25 yards on standard NRA Bullseye target. Shooters may choose 1 or 2 hands shooting. For some shooters, it was the first time shooting a pistol.
I was "blessed" with having young new shooters with very little experience.
