 MISSION

The US Army Reserve Marksmanship Training and Competitive Program represents the forefront of small arms skill in the Army Reserve and are the only formally proven and acknowledged experts on the proper use and training of small arms across the force. These shooter-instructors are some of the world’s best trained small arms marksmen, conducting small arms training, hosting marksmanship events and competing at major venues throughout the United States and abroad.

There are a number of teams that make up the Program under US Army Reserve Command:

  • The Service Pistol Team is comprised of precision pistol marksmen firing .22, 9mm and .45 service and match pistols. National Match Course events held conducted under NRA and CMP rules use precision targets out to fifty yards.
  • The Postal Match Program conducts the World-wide Chief, Army Reserve Postal Match that all Army Reserve units and Soldiers are eligible to participate. We also publish a Rulebook and Course of FIre Book covering all Army Reserve competitive events.
  • The Public Affairs Program keeps Soldiers and the public informed about small arms training and publishes Army Reserve Marksman, an online newsletter devoted to information concerning marksmanship training and competition and available to all USAR units, appropriate agencies, and individuals.
