The "Sharp Blade-2023" International Sniper Competition is underway in Urumqi, southwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
The competition has newly set up the challenge sniping subject, which requires two participants to carefully recognize different sizes and patterns of targets and complete five rounds of shooting within 120 seconds. The subject combines challenging with fun. The shooting targets are various cartoon patterns, and score different points for shooting at different patterns. What kind of target to choose and how to allocate the five rounds of bullets require the participants to make quick choices and judgments in the moving process.
The "Sharp Blade 2023" International Sniper Competition kicked off in a training base of the Chinese People's Armed Police (PAP) Force in Urumqi, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, on Wednesday.
Nearly 40 sniper teams from 18 countries, including Belarus, Pakistan, Kuwait, South Africa, and the Dominican Republic, participated in the competition, together with seven sniper teams from the Chinese military and police units.
This competition has set up 12 competition subjects in four categories, including precision sniping, moving-target sniping and position-rotation sniping.
