Here are his thoughts on skill development.
The Forces Command (FORSCOM) Small Arms Championships is a comprehensive live-fire training event that tests Soldiers’ and leaders’ ability to employ individual, crew-served, sniper weapon systems, problem solve, and think critically under the stresses created by competition. While the elements and spirit of competition are important, all Soldiers are reminded that the Army’s critical intent of the competition in arms program is to develop marksmanship skills at the entry and intermediate level, recognize superior skill at the highest levels, while raising the standards of marksmanship and increasing lethality across the entire force.

CAMP PERRY – Sgt. Nick Mowrer of the U.S. Army Reserve saved his place as the overall competitor in the AiR-15 Challenge during the 2017 National Air Gun Matches.
Mowrer, 28, won the overall title in the event, which is held at the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry.
Wanting to earn back-to-back wins, he admitted there was an added amount of difficulty to this year’s match.
“I felt a little more pressure than last year just because I really wanted to reach that goal,” he said. “But for the most part, I was pretty calm and relaxed in the beginning, and as things weren’t going the way I wanted them to go, it got a little more frustrating.”
He added, “But all in all, it was good. I just stuck to the fundamentals and kept bringing me back to it and execute good shots.”
