Competitors flex their muscle, work up a sweat during inaugural Hoosier Tactical Skirmish

ZIONSVILLE (WISH) — People put their physical endurance to the test during the Inaugural Hoosier Tactical Skirmish on Saturday morning.

It’s a challenge to support the Hoosier chapter of the Special Forces Association at Mueller’s Private Range.

A Tactical Skirmish is a single-day, three-stage competition testing physical endurance, strength and disciplined shooting skills while under significant stress.

Each stage consists of a timed, physically and mentally challenging obstacle course, immediately followed by competitive pistol and rifle target engagements.

There will be police officers, SWAT members, current and former military members, and competitors from all walks of life participating.

These events are meant to mirror the difficulty of tactical combat conditions typically faced by U.S. Army Special Forces, known as the Green Berets.

The event takes place on the anniversary of the Battle of Mogadishu, commonly referred to as “Black Hawk Down,” in honor of the troops who fought in the air and on the ground.
