Marksmanship Badge (United States)

Post by Casey101 on 1/20/2014, 2:49 pm

Has anybody here received the civilian marksmanship badge?
Have you thought about trying to get good enough to be awarded one?

Here is a Link to information on wikipedia
An here for Civilian Marksmanship Program

Many people here have earned or are working towards the title of Distinguished.  That's how people refer to the marksmanship badges at your link.  These can be earned by civilians as well as military members.   

Excellence in Competition matches are my favorite events.  A shooter may fire in three EIC matches plus the National Championships at Camp Perry.  Finishing in the top 10% of non-Distinguished shooters earns a shooter points toward the badge.  To "leg out" a shooter needs a total of at least 30 points including 8 or 10 points earned at a single event.

Being a newbie, my first goal is to earn my first leg points so I can put the Excellence in Competition badges on my uniform. I know one guy in the USCG who is double distinguished and Presidents 100, and that is the ultimate goal.

I have a lot of respect for the guys that have earned the badges. Shows quite a bit of commitment and accomplishment.

I think the rules are somewhat different in each branch of the Service, so make sure you know which matches they will count towards your distinguished badge, rather than assuming that the CMP civilian rules apply to your uniformed service.

Here is an interview that Brian Zins did on becoming Distinguished.  Tony Brong's blog is excellent.

I’m surprised anyone would want to read and old blog post. But someone omitted it’s a two part post.

Here’s a link to the first post : http://tonybrong.blogspot.com/2011/04/interview-with-brian-zins-on-becoming.html Here's a the link for the second part http://tonybrong.blogspot.com/2011/04/interview-with-brian-zins-on-becoming_11.html


And if anyone is interested, here’s a link with the training methods and insights I used to become Distinguished.  http://tonybrong.blogspot.com/search/label/EIC  Its several blog posts. Keep in mind, it starts at the bottom and work your way up the page.

Just remember, there’s a dozen ways to skin a cat and I’m not suggesting my methods are any better than anyone else’s.
