The Gathering of Snipers is an annual event co-hosted by the USMC Scout Sniper Association and the Army Sniper Association. The Gathering provides the only professional forum in the world specifically designed to further the art and science of military sniping. The multi-day event includes practical instruction, a precision rifle match and a professional educational symposium. Through this event, we hope to increase interoperability and enhance the trust and camaraderie among snipers from the various Services. We also aim to engage industry and everyday Americans in supporting the military snipers who proudly serve on their behalf.
The first-ever event of its kind was held in Denver, Colorado in August 2019 resulting in a resounding success! More than 65 military snipers from the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and allied foreign nations participated. These included active duty instructors who currently work training new snipers and those who determine policy and programming at their Service level. This year, we will build on the success of our shooting clinics and add focused discussion groups and professional seminars that are sure to be of interest to shooters and leaders in the community alike.
