    CMP smallbore national championship and youth camp

    My son shot this week at the CMP youth camp during the US smallbore national championships. Camp Perry was cool but a bit underwhelming. The shooting indoor air rifle facilities were really cool (you can see in the pics).

    Also, sitting right on Lake Erie, the wind is always a huge factor at the outdoor ranges. I cant imagine how tough it must be to dope wind at the 1000 yard range.

    IIRC they cost around $2500. The rifle is provided by the shooting team, so I didn't have to pay for it.

    This land abounds in ruffians and varmints. Their numbers are legion, their evil skills commensurate.

    I don't know. Our shooting club is local and we just fell into it. I'd check the CMP website for more info.
