CHALLENGE - April 8 & 9, 2016
This is not a
contest, or a world championship. Nor is this
to be confused with your basic bullseye benchrest course.
This is a competitive sniper training event without
equal. Any sniper seeking to gauge his readiness
to operate in the real world of tactical deployments
should stop here first.
The emphasis is
on training. The Snipercraft Challenge is a unique
course, designed by and for police snipers. Using
actual sniper incidents as the model, each phase incorporates
documented realism. The result is a practical
series of intense live-fire exercises, set up to test
your fitness, equipment, teamwork, problem-solving, communication
skills, ability to perform under a variety of stressors
- and your marksmanship. Exactly like the next
time the pager goes off. This is an opportunity
to validate your preparation.
