Thanks to the efforts of NRA-ILA and the hard work of pro-gun members of the House and Senate, the Civilian Marksmanship Program has been authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to sell up to 10,000 surplus M1911/M1911A1 .45 ACP pistols in the first year of a pilot program.
A new pistol event—the Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) Camp Perry National Challenge—has been added to the Civilian Marksmanship Program's 2017 National Matches schedule.
In case you think you're going to get the Golden M1911 and remodel your dream home from the sale of a mint Singer you got for $50, think again.
This presentation from Martin K.A. Morgan discusses the history of the DCM/CMP, and describes the ways that the program continues to fulfill its mission in the 21st Century.
