FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Ca. - SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world's finest illumination tools and tactical products, is hosting the 12th Annual International Tactical Rifleman's Competition (ITRC), August 21-23 at the SureFire training facility in Gillette, WY.

The ITRC is not only a tough, real-world shooting competition, but it's a proving ground for top military and law enforcement personnel as well as private citizens. Two-person teams will use long-range rifles, carbines, and handguns to complete the courses and compete for various titles and generous prizes.

Two-man teams will work together to solve course problems, while travelling with range officers that will record scores and enforce match rules. Each team will be equipped with one long-range rifle, one carbine, and two pistols. The competition ends with the Golden Egg Shoot giving competitors one shot to hit a chicken egg-sized target from 500 yards away.

Prior to the competition, a three-day rifle training course will be offered from August 17-19. It will be followed by an open range day on the 20th, to allow for final practice prior to the ITRC. The class includes intensive equipment review and testing, and rigorous distance, wind, and elevation data development for targets from zero up to the practical limits of the equipment. This extensive course can serve as an excellent tune up for the ITRC.

About The SureFire Training Facility

The SureFire Training site is located 30 miles north of Gillette, Wyoming, in the Powder River Basin.

The range features an 1800 yard rifle range, well suited for long range rifle/countersniper training, as well as many smaller ranges and combat courses designed for handgun, shotgun, carbine, and special weapons use. The football-size shoot house is capable of live fire, as well as force on force training, under all lighting conditions.
