Congratulations to the top teams at this year’s USASOC International Sniper Competition hosted by SWCS. Twenty-one teams participated this past week, including six international teams.

The duo from USASOC finished 1st, followed by France in 2nd place and 20th Special Forces Group (A) in 3rd.

Once again, the cadre and instructors from Range 37 put on a top-notch competition. Great job to all who helped make it a tremendous success.

      @Aono No the material in it, though heavy, is what makes it solid to the gun.

      Most my rear bags are just some socks with air soft BBs. Usually a 6-7 in bag and a longer one made with a Walmart role up “dry” bag inside of a sock. The dry bag just makes a nice loop for a carabiner and I can fold it over my hand vs squeezing the smaller one. Also I can always dump stuff out/put stuff in the dry bag if need be. A good pair of socks vs a nylon manufactured bag seems to grip more to my hand/stock but this if probably just some sort of placebo I have
