Coming up, Oct 7 & 8 2023 in Virginia at the Black Bear facility, the Major Land Sniper's Cup. We had Gary Conner, Ryan Brandt, Joel Russo and Ron Kuykendall on the Zoom Call.
The honorary match director is one of the most influential men in the Sniper community. Major Land joined the Marine Corps at the age of 17. Land went on to become a Staff Sergeant and drill instructor before his selection to Officer Candidate School in 1959. As a commissioned officer assigned to the 4th Marine Regiment Land demonstrated his aptitude for competitive shooting and was selected for the Marine Corps Rifle Team. In 1961 he founded the first modern Marine sniper course.
Unique for the East Coast, this match will challenge shooters of all skills sets. As well, those participating as Range Officers can shoot and walk the prize table.
Ryan Brandt of Big Dog Steel will be working on Match Director alongside Maj Land and Gary Conner. Targets will be from pistol ranges to beyond 1 Mile. Average range is 800 to 1200 yards.
