Gagetown, New Brunswick — Military and police snipers from Canada and around the world participated in the 17th Annual Canadian International Sniper Concentration at 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown, New Brunswick, between September 19 and 26.

Sniper teams were challenged in a series of realistic events, including field firing, stalking, advanced shooting, communication, observation, concealment, and navigation. The teams had to analyze each situation and select an appropriate course of action.  

Once finished, the teams had the opportunity to discuss with other participants the most successful methods used to triumph the given scenarios.
