    Evidently from the result learning a thing or 2 from the ARW

    The United States Army Special Ops Command is the world benchmark sniper competition. In an event littered with customized & sponsored weapons at the cutting edge of technology @defenceforces 6th place finish with their service weapons is outstanding.
