Any International Sniper Competition is yummy-yummy for firearms photo addicts, and this Photo Of The Day is no exception. Above we have a clean shot (pun intended) of two Belgian snipers, using a tripod and the tank trap for support. The Belgian jigsaw camouflage has been replaced by Multicam.

Below: The best handlebars we have seen in ages, represented by an International Sniper Competitor from the United Kingdom. Jolly good!

Pfc. Menno Biervliet, from the Netherlands, labels his target during the pistol competition as part of the 2024 International Best Mortar Competition at Parks Range, Fort Moore, Ga., April 8, 2024. Mortars have the most power and range of any weapon in an Infantry unit. Indirect Fire Soldiers are members of a mortar squad, section, or platoon. They carry out scout missions to spot enemy troops, gun locations, and operate two-way radios and signal equipment to relay battle orders. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Jacklyn Oxendine)
