The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to firearm safety and marksmanship training, has acquired a surplus ammunition supply and will soon offer it to its customers. The ammunition ranges from .30 carbine, .22 pistol, M2 ball, and .22 Long Rifle, and is currently being cataloged and assessed by CMP staff.
“The CMP plans to make the ammunition available to our loyal constituents sometime this spring, after the surplus ammo goes through all CMP in-processing procedures,” said Mark Johnson, CMP’s Chief Operating Officer and Director of Civilian Marksmanship. “Purchase limits and restrictions will be set to ensure that the mission of CMP is well served.”
The Civilian Marksmanship Program has plans to maintain the surplus ammunition inventory at a large enough capacity to support CMP marksmanship Matches for the next several years while being able to provide discounted surplus ammunition to competitors at the CMP events. Further, the CMP has a commitment to firearms safety and the continuation of shooting sports with youth and other US citizens.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program has agreed to comply with the Department of the Army guidelines laid out in the Memorandum of Agreement which includes set limits regarding all sales of this surplus ammunition. Additional information regarding the surplus sale deal should be available in the coming months. Commercial sales are now available on CMP’s site to qualified individuals and businesses.
