The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) promotes firearms safety training and rifle practice for all qualified U.S. citizens with special emphasis on youth.

The CMP was created by the U.S. Congress. The original purpose was to provide civilians an opportunity to learn and practice marksmanship skills so they would be skilled marksmen if later called on to serve the U.S. military. Over the years the emphasis of the program shifted to focus on youth development through marksmanship. From 1916 until 1996 the CMP was administered by the U.S. Army. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (TITLE XVI) created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice Firearms Safety, Inc. (CPRPFS) to take over administration and promotion of the CMP. The CPRPFS is a tax exempt not-for-profit 501(c3) organization that derives its mission from public law.

Paiute Creek Renegades

Due to the 2021 Dixie Fire there will be NO Rendezvous this year, 2023.

Paiute Creek Renegades is a sub group of the Sierra Sportsmen's Club. This group was established at the same time as the original Sierra Sportsmen's organization. The Renegades are about the shooting of traditional muzzle loading firearms at an off-site location annually at what is referred to as a rendezvous. This event is held on private land owned by the Stroing family behind Walker Lake. This family has graciously allowed us to hold this event on their beautiful property for many years.

A Rendezvous is a multi-day event that includes camping (modern and traditional), trail walks (shooting course), hawk and knife trail, primitive archery trail and comradery. This is a family event there is fun for all ages.

National 4-H Shooting Sports


The focus of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. The National 4-H Shooting Sports Program stands out as an example. Youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of hunting and archery, and much more. The activities of the program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics.


Local 4-H Shooting Sports clubs are open to all youth ages 8 to 18. Each year, 4-H teaches a shooting sport to about 500,000 boys and girls each year. Shooting sports can be gratifying for youngsters, especially those who aren’t athletes. The program provides a supportive environment in which young people can experience hands-on, fun learning experiences.
