FNH USA, LLC is proud to be teaming with established optics producer, Leupold as co-sponsor of the 16th Long Range Precision Shooting Competition, held June 7 to 11, 2010, at Fort George G. Meade in Maryland. This competition will showcase 30 two-man teams representing the finest sniper/counter sniper teams from the United States military as well as local, state and federal law enforcement communities. Teams will participate in demanding tests of tactical rifle marksmanship, scouting and observational skills, and physical fitness through events including: the Poker Run, a Team Observation Exercise, a Moving Target Phase, a Cold Bore Phase, Range Estimation Exercise, Stationary Phase, a grueling Obstacle Course and Movement Phase, as well as an Unknown Distance Phase. The competition is hosted by Baltimore and the District of Columbia metro area local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Team entry fees are $175 and include beverages for the week and a catered luncheon prior to the awards ceremony. All remaining proceeds from this non-profit event will be donated to the Special Forces Association and the National Tactical Officer’s Association to help support tactical officers and soldiers who have been wounded in action. Last year more than $13,000 in proceeds was donated to benefit these organizations and their participants.
