Shooting for the Top


Johnson, D. Keith, Warrior - Citizen


FORT BENNING, Ga. - For the third year in a row, Master Sgt. Russell Moore, Detachment 1, Company A 2nd Battalion (Small Arms Readiness), 91st Training Division, headquartered at Camp Bullís, Texas, won the overall individual championship at the 201 1 ALLARMY Small Arms Championship held here. Other Army Reserve Soldiers from the 84th Training Command's 91st and 78th Training Divisions took home several of the top team and individual trophies.

"The ALLARMY has gotten bigger each year, and increasingly harder each year," said Moore. "The caliber of Soldiers, the accuracy of the Soldiers, has been increasing with the ALLARMY. The Soldiers are learning more and the competition is steadily getting better and better." This was Moore's third ALLARMY competition.

Moore emphasized that competition is the secondary reason for being there.

"As a small arms instructor and an OCT (Observer/Controller/Trainer) for the 91st Training Division, it adds a relevance and depth to what we are supposed to be teaching the average Soldier," he added. "It enables us to be able to say with confidence, ? know the functionality of my weapon, and I know what the capabilities of my weapon and me are.'"

Hosted by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit based here, Soldiers from active duty, the Reserve, the National Guard, cadets from West Point, and colleges and schools across the country competed in rifle, pistol and combined arms matches. Winners received plaques, coins, guns and had their names permanently engraved on trophies.

The field of Soldiers was the highest in 18 years. Soldiers were split into four main categories. There were 206 Novice, or first-time shooters. There were 64 in the Open class, shooters who have competed at least once prior. There were 34 in the Pro class, shooters who have earned the Distinguished Badge or the President's Hundred Tab in either Rifle or Pistol, or have been members of one of the Service Teams.

In addition to being the 201 1 Overall Champion, Moore was also the high shooter in the Individual Pistol category, Individual Combined Arms category and the Pistol Excellence in Competition match. He also led the team from Camp Bullis who finished in first place as the U.S. Army Pistol Team Champions, first place as the Combined Arms Team Match Champions, first place as the Combined Arms Overall Team Champions and third place as the Rifle Team Champions. Except for Moore, all of the Camp Bullís team were Novices, shooting their first ALLARMY.

The 84th Training Command, headquartered at Fort Knox, Ky., brought in more than its share of the awards.

Sgt. Nicholas Johnson, San Antonio, Texas, finished in 2nd place in the Novice category, and 5th Overall.

The Soldiers from Company D, 2nd Battalion (SAR), 91st Training Division, from Salt Lake City, Utah, also finished in the running in several categories. The Company D Soldiers included two teams with five Open Class and four Novice Class shooters.

Company D took 4th Place in the Pistol Team Champion category, 5th Place in the Combined Arms Team Match category and the Combined Arms Overall Team category. …
