Fred Gowen, a veteran from the battle of Hue City, 1968, during the Vietnam War, waits with a round in the chamber for his target to reappear, during the Vintage Sniper Rifle Matches, Aug., 1, 2012 aboard Camp Perry, Ohio. When the targets appeared competitors had 20 seconds to adjust their sites and send a round down range before the targets would disappear into the pits and reappear in 20 seconds for another shot. Competitors shot 10 rounds at the 300 and 10 rounds at the 600 in this manner.
