They got a new attitude

The New Hampshire National Guard “came out of nowhere” to seize third place at the U.S. Army Small Arms Championship held March 12 to 19 at Fort Benning, Georgia. After a 10-year hiatus from the prestigious national competition, Granite State’s “Alpha” squad hauled in three team and seven individual awards against a field of 264 shooters. Perhaps most impressive was their first-place finish in team pistol against 54 squads.
