    Hi, so does anyone know if USAFA has a CWT (combat weapons team) like West Point? Thanks

    Yes. It is called the Combat Shooting Team at USAFA.

    It was the best training and leadership experience I had at the academy.

    Is it hard to join the team or would I be able to walk on? I have a decent amount of experience with shooting but not a whole lot. Also, does it count as an intramural?

    There is a competitive try-out, but they are looking for more than just the fastest, most accurate candidates. If you are interested, try out.

    Last I heard, it is still club status, although they were trying for Limited On-Season status (which replaces intramural requirements so the team can more easily practice on weekdays).

    TF, don't bump a thread that had posts less than 20min ago. That's just annoying.
