This year’s HESCO 2017 Zombie Invitational is a precision rifle, pistol and shotgun match with a twist – a two day Recon-style precision rifle, pistol and shotgun competition open only to qualified, respected, and experienced military, law enforcement, and security professionals.
The competitors are positioned as “grass-roots contingent” created to try to control the outbreak and stop it from rapidly spreading out of control.
If you can’t deal with the Zombie thing, fine! It’s a theme. Get over yourself.
It adds some interesting elements to the stage instructions. That’s it.
Oh, and a lot of lime green spray paint.

Besides, Lycan Invitational sounds lame, requires hand loading solid silver bullets, canine shaped targets, blah blah blah.
So, it was, is and always will be PC to discriminate against Zombies.
The event is individually timed but run as teams with 6 stages on Saturday and 5 stages on Sunday.
Because this event is run by former Military and Law Enforcement, you can be sure that the Zombies have a sporting chance if you aren’t fully prepared, concentrating and ready for anything.
Because of the unpredictable nature of a Zombie outbreak, we run this in the Recon style of modified 3 Gun matches. You’ll need a SHTF Bag, Ammo, and firearms.

And, again, for those individuals who are too cool to participate in the “Zombie Phenomenon,” this is a unique and challenging event that will hone your precision action shooting skills in a very unique setting.
AND A LOT OF LIME GREEN SPRAY PAINT.
“There will be no re-supply. The incorporation of the Zombie theme adds time elements to the stages, intricate and unique shooting solutions, and head shots.”
“Every stage is cleared only if the targets get a head shot. In most competitions shooters are scored for center mass strikes, therefore current and former Law Enforcement, Military and those civilians with previous competitive experience will find this event incredibly challenging.”
Our facility is an exclusive private training ground with a number of surprises. Located in the deep woods near the Virginia – West Virginia border, training realism is our top goal.
Additionally, Hesco was recently recognized as a Superior Supplier and placed in the Commander’s Choice category, by the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for Fiscal Year 2017.

“We pride ourselves on our sponsorship; forming partnerships that offer unique ways we can reach our brand ambassadors, and Hesco is such a great fit for this event,” said Stephanie Victory, CEO Hesco Armor.
“Operated by Military and Law Enforcement veterans, it provides every participant with an extreme challenge not readily found in general competitions.”
“And as a company that manufactures products that ensure the protection of our military and law enforcement we also want to ensure they are prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse!”
