The photo above was posted on Reddit yesterday by u/nygeologist who revealed the shooter in this bizarrely awkward position is competing in the Cola Warrior Championship III, and there’s a reason he’s in this state.
The last rifle target had to be shot one-handed while holding an ammo can with 30-40 lbs. of steel targets in it. This was how this shooter chose to navigate that particular challenge.
What is the Cola Warrior Championship you ask?
It’s kind of a combination of shooting, running, and a Jackass segment.
From the competition’s website:
“Cola Warrior was started in 2011 by former Marine, RustedAce, as a small competition between a few dozen people. The layout was deceptively simple, do five obstacles, eat five peeps, field strip an AK, run half a mile, shooting a bunch of rifle and pistol targets, chug a six pack of cola.”
Yep, you have to eat Peeps and chug cola, and yes, these guys are serious.
“In just a few short years, Cola Warrior has expanded across the country. No matter where you go, the event stays true to the layout.”
The CWC III was recently held from August 16-18 in Liberty, MS and the next event, Cola Warrior East, which was apparently the first regional Cola Warrior, will be held from October 11-13 in Appomattox, VA. If this is something that appeals to you, check the site out for more info.
