Military College Combat Shooting Champs

On April 15-16, the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit competed in the Military College Combat Shooting Championship at the East Alabama Gun Club in Phenix City, AL. This combat oriented 3 Gun match included Cadets and Midshipmen from Texas A&M, The U.S. Military Academy at West Point, The U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the Virginia Military Institute. After two long days of competition, the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit emerged victorious in their second consecutive win at the MCCSC! In addition to the team win, several CCMU individuals received high accolades.

This year, a new division was added to the competition called the "Individual Operator". Competitors were required to carry a 40 pound ruck sack, wear a plate carrier with plates, and conduct additional physical exercises prior to shooting. John Voss '18 and Jordan Anderson '18 both competed in this new division placing 1st and 2nd respectively.

Overall, this match has been the culmination of a years worth of hard work and sacrifice for all cadets on the team and we couldn't be more proud of all that they have accomplished, from the graduating seniors all the way down to the freshman. This has been a record year for the CCMU as they have won the SASP Southwest Winter Regional, SASP National Championship and now the Military College Combat Shooting Championship.

Another year and yet another awesome charity event for CCMU to give back to the Aggie community! The CCMU cadets traveled to Comfort, TX, to lend a hand in the annual Clays for Cara fundraiser. Organized by the Cara Hobbs Foundation, the clays shoot and banquet are the largest fundraiser for the Foundation each year.

The CCMU is honored to help fellow Aggies and their families who need support.

The CCMU looks forward to helping with the Clays for Cara shoot in the years to come!
18 November 2016:

The CCMU participated in an all-day training with Tori Nonaka and Michelle Viscusi of Team Glock.
Focusing on stage planning and USPSA shooting, this opportunity to train with two of the top professional competitive shooters in the industry is a rare privilege. Cadets attending also spent a half day training with Todd Liggett, Ray Kimball, and Chuck Jones on precision rifle and the principles of long range, precision marksmanship.

The CCMU appreciates the opportunity to learn from highly trained professionals and constantly seeks to hone our skills in all aspects of the world of technical shooting. The skills, techniques and practices of these various disciplines all combine to make the cadets better competitors in the shooting sports in which we participate (and win) and will also make our cadets more lethal on tomorrow's battlefields where they will prevail as well.

The CCMU was honored to be joined for our training event by four cadets from Virginia Military Institute and their coach Colonel Levenson, U.S. Army (Ret.) The cadets from VMI are accomplished shooters and sharing the range gives the two teams a chance to learn from each other's competitive experiences and develop lasting friendships.

That evening, CCMU had the honor of hosting Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps (Ret.) Gene Overstreet, Senior Vice President of Glock U.S.A Mr. Ed Fitzerald, and Mr. Ron Martinez, the CEO of Gemtech Silencers. The team also had the distinct honor and privilege of meeting Mr. John Tiegen, a retired U.S. Marine and an author of 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.

The team would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those involved in making this weekend the experience it was.

16-18 December 2016:

For the third year, CCMU Cadets traveled to Crawfordsville, Arkansas to train at the Tier 1 Group facilities.

Training began right away, with the first day consisting of intense pistol instruction from the best of the best. Cadets practiced strong hand, support hand, and freestyle shooting while learning new tips and techniques to add to their shooting "toolbox" for both competitive and military use.

The second day began with running a 20 stage, 600 yard, obstacle course containing a rope climb, single rope bridge, scaling walls, and many other challenges. Cadets wore plate carriers and a full load out of armor and magazines.

Following the course, cadets attended a long range shooting class detailing compensation for atmospheric conditions such as altitude, humidity, and temperature. On the range, cadets shot to 500 yards using precision rifles and experienced firsthand the effects of gusting winds and low temperatures.

With paint-marking rounds, cadets received training for room clearing and an introduction to CQB tactics.

On their third day, the cadets received a combination of pistol and carbine training with transition and movement drills. The team members demonstrated their ability to shoot pistol at extended ranges, their proficiency at moving and shooting a carbine, and a clear head while executing shooting plans incorporating what they have learned.

We would like to thank our instructors who made all of this training not only possible, but extremely productive. Karl Erickson Sgt Maj, USA(ret) formerly of 5th SF Group; Keith Gipple, MSG USA(ret), formerly of 5th SF Group and Zach Moore, MSG USA (ret) also with 5th SFG. These men truly are the best of the best at what they do and it was an honor and a privilege to have them as our instructors for the last few days.

Many thanks to the Brazos Valley Friends of the NRA, and to the NRA, for their generous support of the cadets of the CCMU!

The CCMU received a $5,500 grant for equipment from the funds raised in Texas for Texas kids by the Friends of the NRA. This great organization has as its sole purpose the raising of funds to support youth shooting organizations. Local chapters work each year to promote and fund youth shooting opportunities and to educate young boys and girls as well as college age men and women in safe gun handling skills and the responsible use of firearms for sport and competition.

The cadets of the CCMU will benefit this year, and for many years to come, from the equipment that this years grant has provided for the cadets to continue training to be tomorrow's leaders. Please locate a local FNRA chapter and attend their annual banquet or become a donor.

The cadets traveled to Arkansas for the fourth year to participate in training at the Tier 1 Group facilities. In the classroom, Sgt Maj Erickson instructed the CCMU on combat mindset, situational awareness, and operating under stress. Taking this to the field, the cadets trained using reactive steel targets designed to test advanced application of basic marksmanship fundamentals. The cadets also spent a day learning the basics of building climbing, close quarters battle training, and combat casualty care. Two mornings were dedicated to negotiating T1G's world class obstacle course (24 obstacles over 600 yards), as individuals and in teams.

We would like to thank Sgt Maj Erickson and the Tier 1 Group for their continued support and the preparation they provide our cadets for the challenges they will face in upcoming matches and careers.

Without all of our gear sponsors our training at T1G would not be possible. Special thanks to our rifle sponsor, Adams Arms, our pistol sponsors, Glock and Walther Arms, Inc., our plate carrier sponsor, 5.11 Tactical, our ammunition sponsor, Freedom Munitions (Official), and our bi-pod sponsor, B&T Industries.
