Close to 1,300 service rifle competitors will fill the firing lines today (Monday) at Camp Perry for the CMP President’s Rifle Match. At this prestigious event, conducted annually during the CMP National Trophy Rifle Matches, the top 100 competitors (after 30 shots) will be named the 2012 President’s 100. The top 20 shooters will then be invited to a mid-afternoon Shoot-Off today. The Shoot-Off winner will be awarded the President’s Rifle Trophy (photo right).
