POTD: Rim Of The Pacific Snipers

    Rim of the Pacific Snipers

    Do you love photography? Without it, TFB and TFBTV, would not be the same. We have been running our very special Photo Of The Day for years, sharing great photos from around the world and the world of firearms onto the doorstep of the screen you’re looking at right now. It may be difficult to spot in these images, but the location is the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii. Above you see a scout sniper with Weapons Company, Battalion Land Team, 3d Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, Marine Air-Ground Task Force 7 (MAGFT-7), as he sights in on a target during a live-fire sniper range in support of Rim Of The Pacific (RIMPAC) 2022 exercise.

    This RIMPAC exercise is the 28th in a series that began in 1971. Twenty-six nations, 38 ships, four submarines, more than 170 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating.

    Below: An Australian scout sniper with Sniper Platoon, 2nd Royal Australian Regiment and U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Timothy Bradley, a chief scout sniper with Weapons Company, Battalion Land Team, 3d Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, Marine Air-Ground Task Force 7 (MAGFT-7), from Swampscott, Massachusetts, sights on targets.

    Spotting, almost as important as the shooting.
