President’s Cup

More shoots are being planned dates and locations to come.

The 2024 President’s Cup was held Saturday 18 May 2024.

The 2023 President’s Cup at Falmouth Rod and Gun Rifle Range was 20 May.

The club with the best cumulative score after 4 shoots wins. Falmouth won 2021 President’s Cup.

The course of fire will be:

· Any safe .22 or .17 HMR rimfire rifle and ammunition weighing 8.5 pounds or less,

· No hooked butt plates, no Schuetzen butt plates or palm rests, no slings.

· Any sights, including scopes.

· NRA A-23/5 targets at 50 yards – 5 shots per bull

· Firing from the bench, rifles supported by shooters’ hands with “elbows on the bench”.

All targets turned in will be scored.

We will continue running the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program (MQP) alongside the President’s Cup.

The MQP is a stepwise progression where shooters can earn patches and rockers from Pro-Marksman through Distinguished Expert by shooting and scoring targets.

The President’s Cup and the MQP use the same Rules, targets and distance.

These are the same rules as last year’s shoots. 


Entry (includes 1 target): $8.00

Re-entry: $0.50 (shooters may re-enter as many times as they like)

Re-entry for Junior shooters participating in MQP only: $0.50.

Same prices, too!   There will be hot dogs, burgers, various chips and soft drinks available for purchase.

We may have some .22 LR ammo available for junior shooters.

Reference material on the MQP can be found at Qual Book_06.qxd ( at pp. 18-19/48
