Well, it was held at Fort Benning so US teams didn't have to travel far.

Would liked to have seen some law enforcement agencies send teams to participate, if only to measure themselves against America's best. 

 

Considering which nations did participate, Russia sending its 284th Rifle Division sniper team would have been interesting in various ways.

The FBI was there. They didn't do that well, 20th.

Some teams, Sweden included, had to use borrowed guns since we don't use the type of gun that is mandatory for this competition, which makes that third place even more impressive.

Colorado's and Montana's NGs should have plenty of mountain hunters.

The Dutch battalion that took part, 42nd Limburgse Jagers, is just regular motorized infantry.

Shouldn't that also have been the case for Oregon?

M110 SASS, kaliber 7,62 for the sniper and M4 for the spotter.

 

In a interview with the Swedish team upon returning to Sweden they mentioned that the team from Colorado NG, that came second, was on site six weeks ahead of the competition for training while the Swedes arrived a couple of days before the competition started, got their guns from the organisers, did some practice shooting and then started in the competition. I guess most other non-US teams were in a similar situation.
