A contestants fires off rounds during the shooting competition here May 17. The competition is part of national Police Week.

Approximately 40 Airmen competed in a shooting competition, here May 17.

It provided Airmen the chance to display their skill and accuracy with the M9, the standard sidearm of the U.S. Air Force since 1985.

The competition is part of this year’s Police Week and is traditionally held between Airmen from the 355th Security Forces Squadron, as well as members of the local law enforcement agencies.

“We need to continually build that camaraderie between our security forces brethren, as well as the local outside agencies,” said John Badey, shift supervisor for the department of Air Force civilian police officers, DMAFB. “This is an opportunity for relationships and connections to be formed between Airmen and the Different agencies.”

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

This year 12 teams of four Airmen from the 355th SFS competed for the top spot.

The teams took turns shooting targets from three different distances and used the combined hits for the team score. The competitors shot index cards, center mass circles, and 100 point scoreable rings at seven meters, 15 meters, and 25 meters.

The final Challenge was a steel target silhouette 100 meters away. Each member was given 10 shots with the M9 to hit the target.

The winning team was awarded a picture frame with their team photo and an attached plaque etched with the previous winner’s names. The trophy will stay with the winning team until the next competition.

Tech. Sgt. Zachariah Brignoli, Senior Airman Morgan Esguerra, Airman 1st Class Travis Lage, and Airman 1st Class Ryan Mason made up the winning team.

Staff Sgt. Thomas Webb was the “Top Shot” with a score of 304 out of 380.
