Since 9/11 they hold a sniper competition in Fort Benning, USA open to all countries . Teams of 2 take part over a 4 day period with very little sleep etc This year a team from Ireland consisting of a spotter and a sniper beat out teams from USA, Germany ,France , UK, Canada etc and came in first. Its the first time a team from outside US won. So it seems Ireland can beat out the so called top Special Forces outfits . Way to go Ireland.
