The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP Website) assists the MRPA with raffling one M1 Garand each year.  The winner of the rifle must pass a back ground check and will receive the rifle directly from the CMP.  The funds raised from the raffle go to supporting junior high power shooting in Montana.  This is a great opportunity to acquire a piece of American history and support juniors.  In Montana, there are multiple Vintage Rifle matches through out the year where you can try your marksmanship with one of the greatest battle rifles ever.
