A few impressions of the reconstruction work carried out with army support for the 25m shooting range (KD-Box) in the rear Riparian forest. In the period between May 31st and June 4th, 200 pistol shooters (120 men and 80 women) from around 50 nations will compete on the mobile system.
As you can see, the Swiss construction team is building this range with the same precision as they use to make the famous Swiss watches; therefore we expect that a new CISM world record could be very possible.

Soldiers from the International Rifle team returned home late last night with a little hardware from the Grand Prix of Liberation (Plzen, CZE) and the International Shooting Competition of Hannover (Hannover, GER). SFC George Norton won an individual bronze medal in Air Rifle and the team of SFC Norton, SGT Patrick Sunderman, SPC Brandon Muske, and Team USA member Matt Emmons brought home four silvers and one gold for the United States during the two week stint in Europe. Great shooting! #gousamu #armyteam
