    are any of you members of the VCDL? I am interested in obtaining a rifle thru the Civiliam Marksmanship Program. and if you belong to the VCDL you are able to do so

    One of the requirements to getting a CMP rifle is membership in a CMP affiliated shooting organization. VCDL is CMP affiliated. You still have to show competitive shooting experience as well.

    Here are the CMP requirements:

    If I read the qualifications correctly, for the firearms portion my Virginia CCW permit and my police academy certifications should get me there.

    I am a US citizen, over 21 and bug ugly.

    Your Virginia CHP is the only thing needed for the "Marksmanship or other Firearms Related Activity" portion of the eligibility. Membership in VCDL or a club like the Garand Collectors Association fulfills the "Membership in CMP Affiliated Organization" portion. Beyond that, you just need to be legally allowed to buy a gun, write them a check, and wait 4-6 months :)

    Cool beans. The application is in the mail.

    Now where did I store those Garrand clips? :)

    I moved to Florida in '01, but Phillip Van Cleave will always be one of my heros, and I will forever be a paying member of VCDL. I know other Florida/Virginians that are the same way.

    If you live in Virginia, and own a gun, you should be a member of the VCDL, and go to their open-carry picnics and open carry.
