13th Annual Spring Shoot Out Sniper Competition
March 22-24, 2017 • Orlando, Florida

First place individual won a Ruger® Precision Rifle .308WIN, model 18004,
which is being donated by Ruger® Firearms

First place team won 2 AR-15 rifles, Smith & Wesson M&P-15X #811008
from B&H Police Supply in Merritt Island, FL.

Congratulations to Dale Deas and Preston Hale of the Lakeland Police Department, for the 1st place overall finish in the Team competition! It was a close race.  Brandon Illegen and Brandin Suarez of the Kissimmee Police Department were edged out of the 1st place by only 3 points.

The top sniper in our 13th Annual FSA Spring Shooutout went to Dale Deas of the Lakeland Police Department with a total of 114 points!

The Spring Shootout has been running strong for 13 years. This is a direct reflection of the dedication of our committee and the generosity of our sponsors. Even though this is a competition, all of the events are inspired by real call-outs or situations that we have experienced. We incorporate training objectives behind each of the courses.  The stress of a timer and competing against our peers allows us to create an environment which closely mirrors a real world incident.

We would like to thank the generosity of our sponsors for supporting us in this year's Spring Shootout.  B&H Police Supply provided a pair of Smith & Wesson M&P rifles for the 1st place team.  Ruger provided a Ruger Precision Rifle for the overall individual. Also special thanks to Aaron Murray from Tactical Systems by Florida Bullet for our daily logistical support.

We would also like to recognize the Orlando Police Department, the Lakeland Police Department, the Indian River Police Department, the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office and the Orange County Sheriff's Office for their continued support and helping to make this years event live up to it's reputation.

I look forward to seeing you throughout the year at our other great training courses and at next year's 2018 Spring Shootout!

Nick Brown,
