    Re: KD Steel Range Day with M14's

    Well I'm going to lay low on this one, since the Coast Guard beat us out in the 2019 International Sniper Competition !






    "Snipers from around the world tested their skills last week in intense events meant to look, feel and sound like combat.

    The U.S. Army Special Operations Command International Sniper Competition had 21 teams moving and shooting through a series of events designed to push competitors in their sniper and reconnaissance tactical skills.

    Teams from the Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard also competed in the event March 17-22 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. But in the end it was the soldiers who won the top awards.

    The top two places went to snipers from USASOC. The Marine Corps team came in third.

    The teams represented these organizations":


    USASOC
    1st, 3rd, 7th, 10th, 19th, and 20th Special Forces Group (Airborne)
    2nd Marine Raider Battalion, U.S. Marine Corps
    Marine Corps Special Operations Forces Advanced Sniper Course
    Marine Corps Scout Sniper
    Naval Special Warfare
    Unites States Coast Guard
    1st Premier Regiment de Parachutistes d’Infanterie de Marine, France
    Kommando Spezialkräfte, Germany
    Army Ranger Wing, Ireland
    9th Paratroopers Assault Regiment, Italy
    International Special Training Center

    The shooters competed with their own sniper rifles, firing either 7.62 mm or 5.56

    We're all brothers on the same team. Rivalry can be a good thing if not taken too far.

    When "looking" into the military, . . .

    Interviewed with the Army, . . . didn't feel right

    Same with USAF.

    USMC guy had the door locked, . . . he was gone (out to lunch??).

    Wound up at Navy, . . . haven't looked back.

    Some of the days of my most fun shooting were found as a sailor.

    Didn't learn a whole lot, . . . but had fun.

    USMC grunt taught me how to use a "hasty sling", . . . he was good.

    May God bless,
