This year’s Texas Firearms Festival featured, for the first time, Blue Sunday to honor and support veterans and first responders. Proceeds from the day went to The 100 Club of Central Texas and Veteran Outdoors. After a noon ceremony led by Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell and Sheriff-elect Robert Chody, members of seven central Texas SWAT teams took part in the first-ever Blue Sunday SWAT Team Challenge.
Participating teams included:
San Antonio Police Department SWAT
Central Texas Regional SWAT
Bexar County Sheriff SWAT
Austin Police Department SWAT
Texas Parks and Wildlife Scout Team
Williamson County Sheriff SWAT
Round Rock Police Department SWAT
The match was a tactical rifle competition organized by ATX Precision & Carbine and Special Operations veteran Clay Hergert and featured timed sniper shots at static and moving targets, a door breach, and a series of prone rifle shots on ten targets.
After a close competition in which the seven teams were separated by less than 3.5 seconds, the home team from Williamson County SWAT took the title…and won new rifles courtesy Breckenridge, Texas-based Colt Competition.
Congrats to Williamson County and thanks to all the competitors.
