POTD: Marine Corps Marksmanship Championship Practice

    Marine Corps Marksmanship

    The hungriest beast of them all on this blog is our Photo Of The Day. It consumes hundreds of images every month, and it has been doing so for over 8 years with no intention of stopping. Here we have U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. John Glomba in a shooting position you don’t see too often. He’s a member of the Marine Corps Action Shooting Team from Newnan, Georgia. He’s preparing to fire during range training practice for the Marine Corps Marksmanship Competitions Championship, at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia., April 5, 2022.

    The Marine Corps Championship held, April 6-14, allows competitors to participate in a variety of matches while receiving advanced marksmanship training within the action shooting rifle and pistol disciplines. Shooters from around the Marine Corps were selected for the championship during five regional matches, coordinated by the Marine Corps Shooting Team, October 2021 through March 2022. The award ceremony will be held April 15.
