10th Annual Spring Shoot Out Sniper
This years Spring Shootout was again a tremendous success. This success is rooted in the hard work of Shootout Committee, the extreme efforts of the competitors and the generosity of our sponsors. Our competition was born out of the FSA's mission of providing the best training for our members. The best training is practicing like you play: putting you under pressure to perform on demand under stress. The stress of a competition against your peers does just that.
Teams from all over the State of Florida arrived and were aiming for State pride. These competitors and their hard work and efforts made for a great competition.
The thing that melds the efforts in our competition is the generosity of our sponsors. Kimber Rifles was the proud sponsor of our top sniper. This rifle maker provided a model 8400 Tactical Rifle for the top individual sniper. B & H Police Supply provided handguns for the Top Team prize. Tony Moreschi's artistic genius at Lawman Studios created sniper artwork for both the top team and individual. These great companies along with: Vertex, Federal Eastern International and Florida Bullet lead to the professionalism and quality of our competition. A special thanks to all.
On the first day of competition the Marion County team of James Hammond and Joshua O'Carroll shot top team in the Walk in the Woods course. The Lakeland PD 1 team of Bob Bernhardt and Brent Addison shot top team in the Rifle Madness, Tower Challenge, Make it Count and Shooter's Choice courses. The Kissimmee PD team of James Rabb and Bruce Conners shot top team in the Champion's Challenge course.
The top sniper in our 9th Annual FSA Spring Shootout was Joshua O'Carroll from the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Our top team was the Lakeland Police Department team of Bob Bernhardt and Brent Addison. I want to thank all our competitors and especially our winners for two great days of competition, fellowship and training. We will see you next year and look forward to Marion County supporting our event in the returning Champions Challenge course.
I look forward to seeing you throughout the year at our other great training and at next year's 2014 Spring Shootout!
