What a great Photo Of The Day! This is from the 2024 International Sniper Competition where Sgt. Paco Casas and Sgt. Benjamin Jean-Jourdaine from France fire their rifles at their assigned targets. This is during the “TI-89” event on the Galloway Range at Fort Moore, Ga., in April 2024. It looks like they’re using firearms from their U.S. friends, with the Barrett MRAD and M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System. The scopes are Mark5 HDs from Leupold but with different magnification ranges.

I sometimes hear from experts that the police and military don’t use bags for support when shooting. Well, look again.

Pfc. Menno Biervliet, from the Netherlands, labels his target during the pistol competition as part of the 2024 International Best Mortar Competition at Parks Range, Fort Moore, Ga., April 8, 2024. Mortars have the most power and range of any weapon in an Infantry unit. Indirect Fire Soldiers are members of a mortar squad, section, or platoon. They carry out scout missions to spot enemy troops, gun locations, and operate two-way radios and signal equipment to relay battle orders. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Jacklyn Oxendine)

The competition features realistic scenarios snipers might encounter on the battlefield to give spectators a behind-the-scenes glimpse of everything that contributes to a sniper team’s success.
