16th Netherlands International Shooting Competition 2008 - Infantry Shooting Camp (I.S.K.) at HARSKAMP, the Netherlands - 12/13/14 september 2008

La manifestazione, giunta alla sedicesima edizione, si svolge presso le strutture dello Infanterie Sheeting Kamp di Harskamp, Ente d’Istruzione dell’Esercito Reale Olandese dedicato alla “scuola di tiro” con armi individuali e che viene impiegato in sinergia con le altre Forze Armate e dai Corpi Armati olandesi.

La struttura è dotata di ottimi servizi logistici e didattici e viene impiegata per la formazione del tiratore superiore a quella di base.

La gara è organizzata dall'Associazione degli Ufficiali e dei Sottoufficiali della Riserva olandese e diretta e gestita interamente da Riservisti, che hanno a disposizione il supporto logistico della Forza Armata.

La competizione prevede prove di tiro con il Fal FN in 7.62×51 e con il Diemaco C7 (clone canadese dell’americano M16) a distanze comprese fra 100 e 300 metri (a terra, in ginocchio e in piedi con cambio caricatore; il tiratore indossa il gibernaggio da fante in linea) e con la pistola Glock 17 su varie sagome alla distanza di 30 metri, sempre nelle tre posizioni.

Qualora i tiratori riescano ad ottenere i minimi previsti, si vedrebbero assegnati anche i brevetti di tiratore scelto olandese di secondo livello (sharpsshooters) in ogni disciplina di tiro.

Harskamp è posta a circa 82 km da Amsterdam e la soluzione più semplice e comoda dall'Italia consiste nel raggiungerla utilizzando i voli Easyjet, Myair, Transavia, Meridiana su Amsterdam Schiphol e Ryanair su Eindhoven, treno sino alla stazione di EDE-WAGENINGEN dove un transfer militare vi porterà alle strutture dello Infanterie Scheeting Kamp.
