The Reserve Rifle Team had a lot of great performances through out. We look forward to improving our scores and representing the Army Reserves. The entire Army Reserve Marksmanship Program would like to thank everyone for following along with our Pistol and Rifle teams and for all the likes, comments, and shares. Team members are arriving in Port Clinton ready to instruct the 2013 CMP Small Arms Firing School for rifle this weekend! We hope to see you there and follow along for more score updates and stories from the National Matches. Go Reserves! And remember…
SHOOT LIKE A LEGEND!
Congratulations to the Army Reserve Team! Capt Freeman’s dad said the hot weather was a major obstacle to overcome too. Great performance.
