The Gathering of Snipers is an annual event co-hosted by the USMC Scout Sniper Association and the Army Sniper Association. The Gathering provides a professional forum specifically designed to further the art and science of military sniping. The multi-day event includes practical instruction, a precision rifle match and plenty of opportunity for camaraderie. 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 Gathering 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, after a brief interruption due to COVID in 2020, we’re back and partnered with Guardian Long Range for two days of precision rifle competition!
