We took part in the 15th International All-round Shooting Games by invitation from 5.11 Tactical, the technical sponsor of the competition. We were supposed to prepare a photo report, and finally we also personally supported one of the two teams under the 5.11 Tactical banner. We took photos and we shot.
Last weekend, experienced shooters and gun enthusiasts from all over Poland and Europe met in Rembertów. Among 206 participants, divided into 53 teams, we saw participants from the Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania and Italy. NATO soldiers from the USA, Great Britain, Croatia and Romania, stationed in Poland, also participated. There were also familiar faces known from the airsoft community.
The formula of the competition assumes the start of a 4-men team in eleven static shooting competitions with weapons provided by the organizer. As Andrzej Domański, president of the SBS Salwa association, responsible for the organization of the competition, explained in our conversation, the real skill is to be able to shot with any weapon, not only those you own. One test shot was fired at the targets and usually 10 more were scored. 11 competitions were prepared, in which the participants could test themselves in shooting with carbines and rifles at 100 and 200 meters. KBK AK, MSBS GROT, HK416 and PK (military version) were waiting at designated ranges. At 50m, shooting was done with a suppressed BRS99, at 40m with a slug loaded shotgun, and at 25m using a Beryl 22LR version and then with CZ P09, VIS100, HK Match pistols. The eleventh competition was a grenade throw.
The whole competition was prepared very professionally. Starting from attracting excellent sponsors (the list is given below), the offer of which could be seen at the stands, offering excellent prizes (in individual classification, the best participants won weapons and a backpack 5.11, among other things), through the registration procedure, organized transport by military trucks between long range shooting ranges, accommodation in tents set up by the organizer (capricious weather made the owners of warm sleeping bags much better at it), and catering. There was a VIP zone waiting for the chosen ones, the army staged an orchestra on the stage, which entertained the participants with excellently performed movie soundtrack hits. At the range with the MSBS GROT, the army set up a Leopard tank which could be seen from the inside. All this, plus the participants, made the two days spent in Rembertów in a very positive experience. The competition was conducted in accordance with the PZSS regulations.
Zwycięską okazała się drużyna z Estonii - Parnuma Kaitseliit. Drużyna kapitana Riivo Liin wygrała po raz pierwszy, ale od lat plasuje się w ścisłej czołówce więc zwycięstwo zostało wypracowane. W klasyfikacji indywidualnej (łącznie punkty zdobyte we wszystkich kategoriach) zwyciężył zawodnik Komendy Stołecznej Policji Tomasz Wróbel, który jednak tylko dwoma punktami wyprzedził zawodnika, wspomnianej zwycięskiej drużyny z Estonii.
