TFB’s Photo Of The Day is where you can discover the world of firearms through a camera lens. Every day we run a new theme, one of a few selected pictures together with a short story and a credit to the photographer behind the lens. Today we have soldiers from the Dominican Republic Special Forces shooting the M4 Carbine rifle at targets downrange at the shooting house in Sierra Piedras, Dominican Republic. This happened a while ago, in April 2004, during unilateral training at the Joint Task Force Tradewinds 04 Multinational Training Exercise. To my knowledge, this is the first time we have soldiers from the Dominican Republic here at The Firearm Blog. We had some Belizean Sniper in Stalking Event about two years ago, which is probably the closest we get.
