Central Lake’s Armor Express is proud to be the headlining sponsor of the 2018 Fort Meade Sniper Competition, where police and military counter sniper teams from across the country will come together for five days of educational workshops and exercises focused on strategic training and advancing their skills. The forum, which runs from April 30 – May 4 in Maryland, will also benefit Project Healing Waters, an instrumental veteran’s advocate program.

David Jones, Armor Express’ Director of Federal Sales commented, “We’re excited to join our law enforcement and military officers at Fort Meade this year as they look to gain vital knowledge of the most effective tactics and the latest, innovative tools for sharpening their 21st century skills. We have a great opportunity to engage with the brave men and women on the front lines about the issues they face, their professional development needs, and how we can best support them with the mission-critical equipment and resources they require to perform and be safe. We look forward to a week of immersive and productive workshops that only parallel actual mission deployment.”

Armor Express is sponsoring the headlining “Long-Range Precision Competition” which will include a maximum of thirty (30) teams representing various elite military and civilian law enforcement and special operations organizations from around the U.S. This event is also co-hosted by members of the Baltimore Washington Metropolitan Area Law Enforcement agencies at the Local, State and Federal levels.

Participants will engage in marksmanship training and will have the opportunity to compete with their peers in various high-powered rifle shooting contests. The Long-Range Precision Competition will provide contestants the chance to exchange ideas around proven techniques and strategies related to counter sniper operations. Further, representative agencies will be able to interact with each other as well as with participating vendors to discuss areas of mutual interest.

During Vendor Day (scheduled for May 3rd), attendees will have an upfront view of Armor Express’ concealable and tactical ballistic systems including the Gen2 Razor™ Level IIIA; hard armor plates for rapid up-armoring such as the Abrams line of rifle plates in Levels III and IV, capable of withstanding today’s rifle round threats; flexible plate carriers; and lightweight Level IIIA ballistic helmets including the VPAM-certified AMP-1 TP from Armor Express and Busch PROtective. The Company’s protective solutions are proudly worn by federal agents in the U.S. Marshals Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as part of the Department of Homeland Security, as well as officers at law enforcement agencies nationwide including the Washington County Virginia Sheriff’s Office and San Francisco Police Dept. and Sheriff’s Office, among others.
