The winners of the second stage of the Sniper Cup were determined. This was reported by the Kyrgyz Sniping Federation to The competition called "Batken Frontier" was held in Buzhum village.

The tournament consisted of nine courses with distances from 100 to 1,000 meters. In five of them the shooters competed in accuracy, in two - in long distances and in two - in dynamics. There were 70 shooters in the tournament.

“Boru” Border Guard's officers placed third and sixth for the first time in the Federation's history.

Also, among the difficult courses, we introduced a night course to determine the distance using cross hairs without the use of a rangefinder. Without performing a certain sequence of actions and calculations it is impossible to perform this course," said Aidar Okenov, the Chairman of the Federation's Board.
