SIG Announces Relentless Warrior Championship Date

posted on November 7, 2019

The Third Annual SIG Relentless Warrior Championship, sponsored and hosted by SIG Sauer, will take place March 28, 2020, at the SIG SAUER Academy in Epping, NH. The event is a premier competitive-shooting championship for nearly 100 of America’s future military leaders.

Cadets from the United State Military Academy at West Point will return to defend their 2019 title, challenged by teams from the United States Air Force Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, Virginia Military Institute (VMI), Texas A&M and the Merchant Marine Academy. The shooters will compete against one another through a high-level skills course to earn the “Ultimate Warrior” title.

Chad Barber, match director and firearms logistic manager at SIG Sauer Academy, explained “for the 2020 SIG Relentless Warrior Championship, we are planning an intense day of competition and camaraderie for the participating cadets. We are developing a course of fire to include mission stages that will test the training, marksmanship, and leadership skills of these future military leaders.”

For the 2020 SIG Sauer Relentless Warrior Championship, Team SIG members, and professional competitive shooters, Max Michel, Lena Miculek, and Daniel Horner will serve as honorary match safety officers. Team SIG members will also provide shooting clinics and demonstrations for the participants.

“Supporting our military is the foundation that SIG Sauer is built upon, and we feel a deep sense of responsibility to the future of our nation’s military leaders,” added Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of commercial sales for SIG Sauer. “It’s an honor for everyone at SIG to host this elite competition and actively participate in the development of these cadets in their training to serve our country.”

The SIG Sauer Academy is located at 233 Exeter Road, Epping, NH and covers more than 140 acres. It includes classrooms, indoor and outdoor firing lines, rifle ranges out to 1,000 yards, shoot houses and more, all less than an hour from Boston, MA.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
