    On the 6th December, snipers of the US Army’s 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) took part in training to engage targets at long ranges shooting through barrier holes. The session included tripod training using SOCOM’s Sniper Support Rifle (SSR), the FN SCAR MK20. The training took place at Fort Carson in Colorado, the photos of the range session were taken by US Army photographer Spc. Jacob Krone and  uploaded on to DVIDS last week.
