Westmount, Quebec – 18 April 2022: Did you know that one of the trophies awarded at the prestigious international shooting competition is named after the RMR? The Canadian Armed Forces Small Arms Concentration (CAFSAC) is an annual shooting match held in the early autumn for CAF and foreign military teams using rifles, pistols and light machine guns, held to help improve marksmanship and small arms proficiency. The purpose of CAFSAC matches is to improve and to operationalize core marksmanship proficiency while providing the advanced skills and experience necessary to develop expert marksmanship, instructors, and coaches in units across the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

One of the trophies awarded is named The Royal Montreal Regiment Trophy and is presented to the team with the highest aggregate score for a four-person Reserve Force combat pistol team for Stage 2 (Matches 24-26).

A very good article that details the history of CAFSAC and providing a detailed overview of the 2018 competition was written for Espritdecorps Canadian Military Magazine by Richard Lawrence.
