The CMP was administered by the U.S. Army until 1996, when it became a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation chartered by Congress, but not officially an agency of the U.S. government. It has two main offices, one in Ohio and another in Alabama.

In addition to holding training clinics, the CMP sponsors several national shooting matches each year, like The Oklahoma Games this week at the Oklahoma City Gun Club.

The event has drawn competitors from both coasts the past two years, Arnold said.

The shooting matches begin Thursday and run through Sunday. For more information on the CMP and its games and events, visit www.thecmp.org.
