9th Annual SniperFest Training & Competition | Spring 2020

We will be moving SniperFest back to the spring schedule due to popular request. We do not have the exact dates and location available yet, but please sign up for our newsletter or check back for more information as it becomes available.

SniperFest brings together shooters from all over the state- and beyond, to train, interact, and compete while building a sense of comradery and open communication between agencies. The first two days are filled with debriefs, lessons learned, focused training blocks, and presentations from subject matter experts. Day three is a competition where participants can push their limits to win prizes from our amazing sponsors.

Students and instructors come in from all over the country to engage with one another in a challenging but enjoyable environment.

Sniperfest 2020 is presented by Tacflow Academy, in partnership with the Arizona Tactical Officers Association. We are thankful for our continued partnership as we both celebrate our 10 year anniversaries!


Founded by Deputy Michael Puente, who was the serving Sniper Team Leader for the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office, Sniperfest was first born as a small event for local teams to get to know one another while engaging in friendly competition. SniperFest continued to grow through the help and dedication of Puente, local snipers, the MCSO Posse, and subject matter experts, including the team at Tacflow Academy. In 2015, the decision was made to officially move the event over to Tacflow who, with their partnership with the Arizona Tactical Officers Association, was more equipped to meet the additional logistical demand from the students, vendors, and instructors as the event continued to grow. Today we work hard to stay true to the original mission of the event- creating an unforgettable educational experience, while keeping the entry fee as low as possible through enlisting the help of supporters to help sponsor the event with gear, meals, travel, and cash expenses.
