In­ter­na­tio­nal Shoo­ting Com­pe­ti­tion

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

The 4th edi­tion of the Air Force Cup Co­logne took place from 24 to 27 Au­gust 2017. This year, 88 com­pe­ti­tors ( 22 teams of 4) from 9 dif­ferent coun­tries par­ti­ci­pa­ted. For the first time, Ca­na­da had its own team, made up of the 4 mem­bers of the OS HUB ( E). In fact, one of them was MC­pl Des­ga­gné, a mem­ber of the 3rd Esc Ba­got­ville Lo­gis­tics Di­vi­sion. This com­pe­ti­tion gives the mi­li­ta­ry of the in­vi­ted coun­tries a chance to fa­mi­lia­rize them­selves with fo­rei­gn wea­pons. Rifle, sub­ma­chine gun and pis­tol were the types of wea­pons that the par­ti­ci­pants had to handle in dif­ferent events. The com­pe­ti­tion took place over 2 days. Fri­day was a day of fa­mi­lia­ri­za­tion with wea­pons. The next day, the real com­pe­ti­tion took place. In to­tal, the shoo­ters had to com­plete 6 exer­cises re­qui­ring skill, pre­ci­sion, speed and ve­ry high concen­tra­tion. The Ca­na­dian team was able to stand out in one of them, that is, shoo­ting with the G3 wi­thout te­les­cope. The test consis­ted of a 5bul­let shoo­ting in the prone po­si­tion and 5 others on the knee­ling po­si­tion, all at a dis­tance of 150 me­ters. In ad­di­tion, 25% of the tar­get gave no points, which made the task par­ti­cu­lar­ly dif­fi­cult. Our Team ran­ked 5th out of 22, no­ta­bly thanks to the per­for­mance of MC­pl Des­ga­gné with a score of 76/ 100 and a grou­ping of 3 bul­lets wi­thin 5cm when ze­roing.
