First experiences with CMA

CMA has proven its value over the past few months. It really offers superior possibilities and variety in stage design resulting in interesting challenges and great entertainment for the shooters. The shooting rules are straight forward and can easily be applied to the particular situations in a given stage. Pistol and rifle matches are separate and that allows for dedicated stages taking into account the very different potential and application of the firearms.

Nobody wastes time with discussions about funny equipment and ever-changing, contradicting rule interpretations. Match organizers, officials and shooters just enjoy the action of pure shooting performance. And that's how things are supposed to be.

Bottom line: CMA - A Better Way!
