7th Annual USASOC Sniper Competition

Fox News article about the USASOC Sniper Competition last week.


I'm reaching out to the Sniper Committee to get the final standings. From what I saw Thursday at the vendor displays it was the usual "sets a standard of excellence" on the part of the Committee and Special Forces Association-Chapter 62. Apparently the competitors were pretty good too!
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

"...The U.S. Special Forces team from 3rd Group took first place while teams from U.S. Army Special Operations Command teams took second and third..."

Congrats to 3rd Group for all the hard work their team put in to win it.

Congrats to the 2nd & 3rd place teams that gave them a run for their money.

And so it begins.

Good luck to the US teams! Just ran into the Netherlands team. They are bringing their A game! They got second some years back and 4th last year. Have been learning from some best instructors here and so on.

I’m surprised they said 6.5 creedmoor is not allowed.
Did group therapy with it at 1000 yds recently with 5 to 15 mph wind. Still minute of chest. It was like cheating…
