Nevada National Guard Soldiers participating in the Nevada Army Guard’s 2018 Best Warrior Competition completed the live-fire range portion of the competition this morning at Freedom Range, Hawthorne, Nev.
It is called a stress shoot. The test is based on being able to hit targets from various firing positions while winded from sprinting in full body armor between several locations on the range.
They started the task by first assembling the two weapons they would be firing, the M-16 Rifle and the M-9 Pistol. Next, they and a range safety official moved between various obstacles and engaged targets.
The Soldiers were required to fire over, under and around barriers. They also had to fire both left and right-handed, climb a tower, crawl through and fire from a large metal pipe, and reload when necessary.
The final sprint to stop the timer ended with the Soldiers transitioning to their side arms and knocking down the remaining targets.
The scores of this event will not be announced until tomorrow when the winners of the competition are named.
The two winners, an enlisted Soldier and a Noncommissioned officer, will move on to compete in the regional competition.
