CMP Instructs Over 50 Rifle, Pistol Students During Its Marksmanship 101 Courses in Illinois

BONFIELD, Ill. – Over the gorgeous weekend of Oct. 1-2, 2022, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) conducted its Marksmanship 101 Rifle and Pistol Courses at the Illinois State Rifle Association in Bonfield, IL.

“The Illinois State Rifle Association is a fantastic host, and they have told us we always are welcome there!” said Amy Cantu, CMP program & competitions associate who manages the Marksmanship 101 program.

Held around the country throughout the year, the October session included a Pistol Marksmanship 101 Course – the first of its type at the Illinois location. A group of 30 individuals attended the training, guided by CMP instructors Jim Henderson and Larry Grace.

In Rifle, 23 students were trained by instructors Danny Arnold and Dean Bates. The pair also led a Range Safety Officer course, which is helping improve safety enforcement on the range during CMP sponsored and sanctioned competitions, with 16 total attendees.
